Dear Mr Ahmed,
Re: Camera Operator (Job ID: EY81)
I was delighted to find that you had a vacancy for a Camera Operator on your company website, and I am interested in applying for this position. I believe that I have all the necessary skills and experience to be a great success in this post.
I have worked for the past two years as a photographer, which has given me a solid knowledge of camera equipment and how to solve technical and practical issues before and during shoots. I am accustomed to organising all the equipment and materials (including set decoration and costumes) that are required, and visualising and framing shots.
My practical work experience has also highly developed my communication skills as I regularly had discussions with both clients about the kind of photographs they desire and my manager on how to conduct photo shoots. I can stay calm under pressure, and I have a good level of stamina which is helpful when I am required to work long hours.
Working for Pelican Movies Ltd would be a dream come true for me. I have always wanted to move into film, and I believe I have a creative edge that Pelican Movies needs to further its success. I would be an invaluable team member who would always work to the best of my abilities and complete any task assigned to me to the highest quality.
Please do not hesitate to contact me on 0782 884 102 to discuss my application in greater depth. Thank you for your time, and I hope to meet you soon!

Dear Ms Oliver,
Re: Camera Operator (Ref: JKO29)
I am writing to apply for the above position, an opportunity which I recently saw advertised on the GSK careers portal.
As a recent graduate with a first-class honours degree in Media Studies from the University of Birmingham, I feel that I am an excellent candidate for the advertised vacancy as I possess an in-depth knowledge and practical experience of a wide range of camera shots and filming methods. I am passionate about filming, and I have a big interest in media and technology. During my studies, I also completed a range of freelance projects, including filming videos for a local college, in which I was able to practise a variety of camera moves and apply my learning.
I am an excellent team player, and I have also effectively led a team on two occasions as part of my undergraduate studies. I possess excellent organisational and interpersonal skills, enabling me to manage my time well and communicate effectively with other crew members.
I am particularly drawn to GSK media due to its reputation as a leading global broadcaster and its commitment to nurturing young talent. I am also specifically interested in working in live broadcasting, and therefore I am eager to become a member of your filming team and contribute immensely to your recording and broadcasting team.
I have attached a copy of my CV for your attention, which expands on my camera skills and professional training in more detail. If you need any extra information or have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. I hope that you will find me a strong candidate for this role and I look forward to hearing back from you in due course.
