Next week, on Oct 7th, I’ll be donating my services to Job Camp 4, a large event devoted to helping job seekers improve their job-seeking skills. I have been recruited to make free headshots for anyone who wants a “new image” to use for social media purposes, like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and the like. At the last event, the photo-team made over 480+ headshots. I am imagining that we’ll likely top 500+ portraits in one day. We also plan to download, crop, resize and email all of those portraits to those portrait subjects. There’s no way I could possibly do this on my own. Seven Milwaukee photographers have stepped forward to donate a portion of their day to helping process all these photos!
These people are all self-employed and by giving up their time to volunteer at Job Camp are definitely sharing something of value with all our portrait-subjects. These generous photographers are the ones who will be working the computers to get the JobCamp attendees headshots out to them, quick as lightning!

We all look forward to seeing everyone at Job Camp! Here’s a post from my last visit, as an attendee, to Job Camp.
