10,000 Headshots Intiative Providing Free Headshots to Unemployed Residents

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many people lost their jobs or were unable to work due to related circumstances. However, job seekers will have the opportunity to receive a complimentary headshot from local Palm Beach County photographers at Mizner Park. 

The event “10,000 Headshots” is an effort to create the largest, single-day photo initiative to help people get back to work.

 More than 200 photographers across the country will participate in pop-up studios in all 50 states taking place in the span of 1 day. 

Photographers say the best way to prepare for the photoshoot is to wear solid colors. Keep your look natural and save the selfies for social media, especially as more interviews go digital.

“If you are a person who is hiring, if you’re presented with two headshots and one is a selfie that someone took in their backyard, or where they crop themselves out of a group at a party or something, versus a professional headshot. People are going to be more likely to hire people with the professional headshot,” said Sharon Morgenstern, the owner of Boca Raton Headshots. 

The event will take place Wednesday, July 22 at Mizner Park in Boca Raton from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
