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.

Oh, so this is how a virtual summit works!


Oh, so this is how a virtual summit works!



Even us "influencers" learn new things every single day, :)

Not too long ago, I was on Instagram and came across a cool profile feed created by Entrepreneur and Coach, Raulvin Coke.  He posted a lot of quotes, and I am a fan of those, so, I would regularly engage him based on those posts.

The next thing you know, we scheduled a call, I found out he was putting on a Summit that focused on creating impact through your business and life, and he invited to me to take part.

How can I say no, right? 

On a rainy Sunday morning, Raulvin and I got on a Zoom call and away we went.  

We touched on several topics, including:

  • Why do branded portraits even matter for thought leaders?
  • Why is a photographer like me even necessary when there’s great technology all around us?
  • How to deal with a person who says, “I’m not photogenic!”
  • What are some of the things that “make me die a little bit on the inside?”
  • What are some of the things to look out for when selecting a photographer?

But, before we got into these topics, Raulvin asked me a couple of more personal questions, which is rare when doing these conversations and interviews.

Here is a clip of that part of the conversation:
