Dear Sir,

With reference to Mr. Jaffrey, assistant director I came to know about the available position of a camera operator in your agency. He informed me that you are in search of an experienced and professional camera operator.

As a camera operator I used to shoot for private events such as wedding ceremonies and various activities. But now I have two documentary films to my credit. One of them was nominated for the 'London Festival' conducted a month ago. Be assured about the technical expertise. I have functioned as an assistant camera trainee (AC) for 3 years and have achieved a level of competence with the experience in handling a variety of cameras. Find the enclosed resume and CDs of the documentaries. I learnt a lot as an assistant and would now like to function independently.

Hoping a positive reply in this regard and look forward to you for an opportunity to have a personal interview.

Thank you,

Yours sincerely,

John Smith
