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.

DeMato Productions visits Maury


Nothin' says fun like taking pics for Uncle Maury...

Ironically, for all the years I've worked in production, I never had the desire to be on-camera. 

It's funny how everything changes the moment you do a complete 180 degree turn, and course correct your entire life.  

The next thing you know, you're photographing guests on Maury for the 5th time!

As usual, it was a blast going home and working with people that I've known for so many years.

And, the fact that I worked with a 17-year-old who is turning her life around with dreams of doing something more with her life just made the whole experience even more gratifying. 

After we finished the session for the Maury cameras, she gave me a big hug and thanked me for doing this for her.

Honestly, that made me a little mushy - fortunately, the cameras weren't there to zoom into my face and capture that!

To check out the session, just click on the video below and enjoy, :)

I definitely look forward to doing this again with the good folks at the show, and her appreciation of the images really reminded me why I do what I do.

In the words of Uncle Maury - until next time, America!
