Thank you so much for considering my application for the Spring 2020 Artist in Residency. It would be not only an honor, but a dream come true to be able to work at such an astounding institution such as this museum. Because this has long been a goal of mine, I'm providing this cover letter to supplement my application and portfolio to express my sincere and unwavering enthusiasm for this opportunity.

My recent years as a freelance photographer have taught me many things beyond just operating a camera. To name a few:

  • Personal Organization & Discipline
  • Client Management & Development
  • Developing Strong Relationships with Printers, Developers, and Other Vendors
  • A Sense of Adventure and Relentless Curiosity

As a freelancer, I boast a flexible schedule to be able to commit to an artist in residency opportunity such as this. With previous residencies under my belt, I'm ready to come in with an open mind and a relative sense of direction of where I'd like to see myself grow throughout the program.

Thank you sincerely so much for your consideration. This opportunity means the world and I would be happy to discuss any more details about myself or my work as much as necessary to give myself the best chance as an applicant. Please find my contact information below, and I will hope to hear from your team soon.

Best, Sam
