Mr. Steve Proton
Hiring Manager
Famous Brands International
452 N Pole Lane
Groton, SD 77002

Dear Mr. Proton:

Looking through the careers section on your website, I came across the opening for a “freelance photographer who can work on different layers”, a description that is absolutely spot on with what I have to offer.

As a freelance photographer, I have worked on many diverse photography projects, including fashion, still, event, and corporate. Since I do not limit myself to just one genre of photography, my skills are varied, yet focused on both the subject and the quality of my projects. 

Having graduated from the Groton Photography School in 2010, I have since worked on 252 photography projects – and this does not include the time that I spent as an apprentice to Mr. Charles Poloski, the famous photography all-rounder!

I am deeply familiar with subject compositions, setting up props and scenes, directing shoots and using a wide range of technical equipment such as cameras, lenses, lights, and specialized software. Once you have been through my profile, you will be able to see the diversity in my photographic content, and how I use my inner creativity to bring subjects alive.

I am positive that you will not regret talking to me about this position. I would be happy to provide printed samples of my work when we meet. I will call you after one week to set up a meeting time. You can reach me at (000) 414-1041 in the meantime.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
