I’m writing to express my utmost interest in the Videographer position in the action sports industry. I am seeking experience at a company where I can further enhance my filming and editing techniques while using my skills for the betterment of the company.

As a young boy I grew up living the adventurous & action sport lifestyle. I was in 6th grade when I picked up my first snowboard & headed to Tahoe for my first run on the hill. I was in 8th grade when my curiosity grew & transitioned to the coastal waves of California & experienced surfing for the first time. Fast forward 15 years while studying abroad in Bilbao, Spain where I surfed in the Atlantic Ocean. I have traveled to Nicaragua to surf in the Pacific Ocean. I have snowboarded the fresh powder in the backcountry of Canada. I believe that my passion for action sports has taught me so much about life & about myself that I want the chance to give back to others through photography.

As an Freelance Videographer/Photographer at Zack Lawson Studios, I thrive in a high personal expectations work environment with freedom to implement creative strategies as needed. I collaborate with visual, product, & design teams to conceptualize & executive creative direction for photo shoots as well as ensuring all images are within brand guidelines. I execute highest of standards by setting up lighting, composition, color accuracy, exposure, and audio equipment for each shoot. I shoot video for all social media platform formats such as Facebook, Youtube, Instagram, Instagram Stories, and IGTV. I ensure all professional videos are delivered to meet client's post-production deadlines.

As Director of Media at LiveBig Productions, I played the role of jump starting the company’s media department. I gained expert understanding of DSLR cameras, action cameras, & drones. I worked closely with clients & Creative/Marketing departments to achieve creative & overall goals. Be proactive in problem solving, both technically & creatively, with constant attention to process improvements. I gained proficiency in industry tools (Adobe Creative Suite, Capture One, etc.).

Overall, I believe I would make an exceptional addition to any digital team as a Videographer. I believe working as a videographer would challenge me while allowing me to use my skills and experience to benefit the company. I greatly appreciate your consideration for any videographer role.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
