Sometimes if opportunity doesn't come knocking you just have to build the door yourself, or in Judson Collier's case an epic website as an intern proposal letter. The website/fancy letter was written to famed photographer Jeremy Cowart. I was blown away at the sheer creativity, not to mention ballsy approach to asking someone for a job. Judson goes into great detail on why he would like to intern, his strengths and why he believes he would be great at the job, including making a mean cup of coffee.

"My mom always told me: "The worst they can say is no, so it never hurts to ask". So here I am, asking. Sure, you technically might not be looking for an intern. You never asked for one. But hey, if an opportunity doesn’t knock, sometimes you have to build the door." - Judson Collier
Judson's idea has seemed to do the trick. He reported on his twitter that he had lunch with Jeremy this past Monday and will be moving to Nashville late January and starting his ever faithful internship duties in February. I would say... 'Lucky!', but with an amazing presentation like that, how could Jeremy refuse?
We here at Fstoppers tip our hats to you, Judson. Congratulations, and we look forward to seeing what great things you and Jeremy come up with. Good luck.
