That is why the Altamonte Mall (451 E. Altamonte Drive, Altamonte Springs, 32701) 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.Altamonte Mall will host the complimentary headshots on Wednesday, July 22 from 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Complimentary headshots are open to anyone currently unemployed, but participants are asked to visit HeadshotBooker.com for details and schedule a time to be photographed.More than 200 photographers will participate across all 50 states, creating pop-up studios at nearly every Brookfield retail location nationwide. Headshots will be provided to participants on site through event photo sharing platform SpotMyPhotos.10,000 Headshots is the brainchild of Tony Taafe, who co-founded Headshot Booker with renowned portrait photographer, Peter Hurley and national event photographer, Lauren Lieberman. Taafe recalled the struggles his dad had with unemployment and the impact it had on his entire family. “I know firsthand that the effects of unemployment extend well beyond an individual,” he explains. “My dad was the hardest working person I ever met. He was in construction so the work wasn’t consistent and he had almost zero job security. “Unemployment impacts everyone and everything associated with that person,” Taafe continued.“Headshot Booker is in a unique position to provide out-of-work Americans with an important element of the job search process – a great, professional headshot. And thanks to our partners who share a similar vision, we will be able to help thousands of unemployed Americans put their best foot forward and help them get back to work,” Taafe said.“We are proud and excited to host the 10,000 Headshots initiative across our portfolio,” said Brookfield Properties Chief Marketing Officer Michelle Snyder. “As we continue to welcome guests back to our centers, we are grateful for this opportunity to help the members of our communities that have been negatively impacted by the pandemic.” Snyder emphasized that safety for all participants is a core focus, and each photographer will follow specific protocols to ensure safe distancing and hygiene practices throughout the day.The base price for a high quality, professional headshot starts around $250, which equates to more than $2.5 million in collective services these photographers will provide through this initiative.In addition to Headshot Booker, Brookfield Properties, and SpotMyPhotos, additional support is provided by Canon USA, Tether Tools, and PhotoFlashDrive.Brookfield Properties is a fully integrated, global real estate services company, providing industry-leading portfolio management capabilities across the real estate investment strategies of Brookfield Asset Management – a global alternative asset manager with over $515 billion in AUM.

Facebook82Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Thurston County Solid WasteThurston County students braided more than 9,000 plastic bags into rope that would become a large whale for the Procession of the Species.While Santa is out delivering presents Christmas Eve, TV viewers across America will find out if a life-size plastic whale sculpture created in Thurston County can make one whale of a journey safe and sound on A&E’s hit show “Shipping Wars.” The episode featuring the 32-foot long brainchild of local artist and environmental educator Carrie Ziegler premieres Tuesday, December 24 at 10:30 p.m. on A&E.More than a year ago, Ziegler conceived a plan to marry her artistic skills with her environmental education job by having Thurston County school children assist with the creation of a giant whale sculpture that would use plastic bags and other plastic waste. The large-scale art project was a way for kids to get a hands–on experience while learning about the harmful effects of plastic waste on the environment and wildlife.“Talking about the scale of plastic contamination in our environment and in our oceans can be a bit overwhelming. I didn’t want to leave these kids with a sense of hopelessness, I wanted them to remember what they learned with a positive attitude and I wanted them to feel like they had contributed to something special and had made a difference,” said Carrie Ziegler, Outreach and Education Specialist for the Thurston County Solid Waste Division. “So I came up with this large-scale sculpture idea—this giant whale is something special, something memorable, and the kids can point to it and say ‘I helped make that.’”By the time the plastic whale sculpture was completed earlier this spring, more than 800 youth in Thurston County had helped make the body, skin and skeleton of the 32-foot long whale out of plastic bags, plastic forks and cups, milk jugs, and Styrofoam. The skin required about 9,000 plastic bags that local youth braided into about 6,000 linear feet of plastic rope that was formed into a mat similar to a rag rug. The skin features a map of the Pacific Ocean with the Great Pacific Garbage Patch depicted in the middle.The giant whale floats through Olympia’s Procession of the Species.The finished whale sculpture was one of the feature floats at the annual Procession of the Species parade in Olympia on April 27. After migrating to The Washington Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Olympia and to the Thurston County Fair for display over the summer, the plastic whale went on tour with its message of environmental stewardship and waste reduction.To find out more about this sea mammal sculpture’s great land journey, tune in to A&E’s “Shipping Wars” on Christmas Eve at 10:30 p.m.Channel 52—Xfinity (Comcast) customersChannel 118—Dish Network customersChannel 265—DIRECTV customersFor more information about A&E’s “Shipping Wars” and the episode featuring the whale sculpture, go to www.aetv.com/shipping-wars/season-5/episode-8.For more information about the plastic bag whale sculpture, view the short video called “The Plastic Whale Project: a sensational cetacean” at http://bit.ly/130EMjN.
