Dear Mr Reddy

Re: Photography Assistant position

I am writing to apply for the position of Photography Assistant at Different Side Photography as advertised recently on

I am a highly organised, enthusiastic and motivated photographer with a passion for fashion and a good eye for composition and detail. Since completing my Diploma of PhotoImaging last year, I have been working as a freelance photographer on a number of projects.

Working as a freelancer has enabled me to develop not only my photography skills using different styles and techniques, and for different commercial or artistic purposes; it has also developed my ability to quickly absorb a brief, adapt to varying work conditions and personality types, work quickly and efficiently, and deliver high quality photographs within tight timeframes.

I have taken photographs for everything from fashion shoots to weddings and studio portraits, for magazines, marketing material and personal use. I have solid technical skills using both digital and traditional SLRs, and am confident using a range of lighting techniques to produce different effects. I am adept with Photoshop as well as Aperture, and have experience uploading photographs into company databases and archives.

I am known for my attention to detail, and am an enthusiastic and efficient learner. I am also personable and outgoing, work well with different personality types, and deal with unexpected turns of events calmly and resourcefully. I have an organised and structured approach to work and always pre-plan every aspect of a shoot.

My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further. You can view my full online portfolio at

Yours sincerely,
