As a professional photographer , creativity is your calling card — a talent you should ideally be able to express not only through images but also in the language you use to describe your photography skills when applying for jobs. Your cover letter and resume provide an excellent chance to make a positive first impression upon a potential employer by impressing them with your creative artistic background and technical skills. Before the hiring manager takes a look at your resume, he or she will read your cover letter. Use this opportunity to highlight a few specific examples of your relevant skills and experiences, so that the hiring manager will be eager to read your resume and invite you for an interview. As you compose your cover letter, keep in mind that it is, first and foremost, a marketing document that should entice a busy hiring manager to give the attached resume a serious look. If your cover letter is too generic the same cover letter you use for every job you apply to , is too general, or contains multiple grammatical or spelling errors, a hiring manager may not bother to even look at your resume.
