Glenn Nielsen, our treasured volunteer photographer, is being honored with a 2017 HEROES AT WORK AWARD by the Tampa Bay Business Journal!


The Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Heroes at Work award recognizes Tampa Bay veterans who, through their professional and personal efforts, are making a positive impact throughout the community.

USAF Col. (Ret) Glenn Nielsen is a decorated combat pilot who has been volunteering his time and expertise as a profile headshot photographer at our LinkedIN Workshops for transitioning servicemembers and their families on MacDill AFB for over a year now.

Glenn is one of the most talented, multi-faceted individuals I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. “Creative” would be an understatement….every month he magically transforms a military supply closet into a portrait studio(!) — and the quality of photos he produces under these circumstances is beyond amazing.

He is an absolute lifesaver to our transitioning military attendees since a professional profile photo is often critical to their future career success. In the past year alone, he has positively changed the lives of HUNDREDS of his fellow veterans!

In his professional life, Glenn is a sought-after Tampa Bay portrait photographer. He’s a Godsend to families seeking a keepsake family portrait, as well as expectant mothers and families with newborn babies or developing children.

Glenn simply loves PEOPLE (even little people!), and there’s nothing that gives him greater pleasure than capturing the look of love between a parent and their child.

Our heartiest congratulations go out to Glenn Nielsen for receiving this prestigious award in recognition of his excellence and extreme generosity!!
