I am excited to have learned about your company and to hear about your need for new photographers. My skills and experience cover everything that you need and more. I have years of photography and videography experience (not property specific, but I’m confident I can meet and exceed your expectations). I’ve had sales / customer support jobs and have worked with photography clients face to face at trade shows, weddings, freelance jobs, in the hospitality industry and more. I am friendly, respectful, and understand the importance of exceeding expectations in quality, service, and experience.
I am currently seeking a career change to focus more on my photography passion, and this could be an excellent way to be able to make that leap. Please take a look around my website to get an idea of my work. As I mentioned earlier, there won’t be many property specific examples at this point, but I could get some more for you if needed.
You can see some samples below, and I have included my resume as well.
Thanks for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about this opportunity.
