Lakeland Square Mall is set to participate in the “10,000 Headshots” initiative to provide complimentary headshots to those without work.

The initiative, started by Headshot Booker, is a one-day, nationwide event intended to provide 10,000 unemployed Americans with a professional headshot, as many have lost their jobs due to the pandemic. 

The event will be held at Lakeland Square Mall Wednesday, July 22 from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Headshots will be shared on site, through the photo sharing platform SpotMyPhotos.

“Regardless of profession, COVID-19 sent millions of Americans to the unemployment line without warning,” the event press release reads. “That is why Lakeland Square Park (3800 US Highway 98 North) is participating with Headshot Booker and local photographers to create the largest, single-day photo initiative that will provide 10,000 unemployed Americans nationwide with a complimentary, professional headshot to include with their resumes and post to job sites such as LinkedIn.”

While the event is open to anyone who is unemployed, participants are asked to visit HeadshotBooker.com to schedule a time to be photographed. According to Headshot Booker’s website, each location will be limited to 50 appointments per location, with each participant given a 10-minute one-on-one headshot session.
