NYC Branded Lifestyle Portrait Photography Blog | Hi, I'm John DeMato, and I collaborate with thought leaders to create powerful, purposeful and authentic images. This is my blog where I talk all about the magic behind the portraits we create.

When blasting an airhorn is a good thing…


When blasting an airhorn is a good thing…


...and when it’s done more than once - well, that’s magical, :)


What a true pleasure it was to sit down and chat with John Vagueiro, President and Founder of Adapting Social. His energy and passion was quite infectious, and it made for a really interesting chat about portraits, business, productivity and life, in general.

Not only was the conversation lively, but, John apparently likes his sound effects, too.

After a couple responses that I shared with him, there was a pause of a beat or two, and then, out of nowhere, he’d blast an airhorn sound effect.

I was so giddy about it every time he did it - and nope, I’m not ashamed to admit it!


Well, one of the comedy podcasts that I listen to regularly uses this same sound effect when they have something big to announce, so now, I’ve associated the airhorn with something important being discussed.

Either way, it was a nice surprise and an awesome touch to the whole conversation.

Speaking of the conversation, here’s where Adapting Social has posted the episode.
