John DeMato - NYC Branded Lifestyle Portrait Photographer

2019 Launch Your Thought Leader Brand

This page discusses my portrait session geared towards those who are building the foundation for their thought leadership brand and are in need of branded lifestyle portraits.


Building the foundation for your speaker, author, or coach brand?

That’s why I created the LAUNCH YOUR THOUGHT LEADER BRAND portrait session - produce all the photos you'll need to kickstart your journey as a thought leader!


When building a thought leader brand, it's critical to leverage a magazine-quality presence throughout all of your marketing materials, including:

  • Website

  • Social Media Profile Pictures

  • Media/Press Submissions

  • Printed Materials- books, leave-behinds, etc.

  • Blog/Newsletters

  • Social media content

This is where I come in, :)

The LAUNCH YOUR THOUGHT LEADER BRAND portrait session provides you the building blocks to get your marketing up and running in a powerful and purposeful way.

We'll have a strategy call to discuss your business, you’ll pack a bunch of outfits, and then, we’ll shoot a ton of photos, and choose the best ones that present you in the most confident and flattering light.

I’ll hand you an image content portfolio stacked with portraits that illustrate who you are, who you serve and why you do what you do.

It's as simple as that!

The LAUNCH YOUR THOUGHT LEADER BRAND package consists of powerful and engaging headshots for your social profiles and speaking engagements, lifestyle portraits of you in action that can be used on your website and social media, and lifestyle portraits of your work environment that detail what you do and how you do it.

The photos John captured for me will allow me to tell my story as an entrepreneur and director for public speakers with ease and expertise for years to come. Not only do you walk away with tons of awesome pics, but you also have fun spending the day in front of the camera. John’s an animal, he loves what he does and so will you!

John was very thorough in understanding exactly what I needed, the various scenarios I wanted, what I might wear — and even down to the range of expressions we’d want to go for. John is a true professional, without having a stick up his… you know… He’s friendly, thoughtful, thorough, creative — and just damn good. I look forward to hiring him again when I’m ready for my next batch of photos!

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with John a number of times. Time and again my team and I count on his photos for just about everything we do... none better. John seems to bring out the best in me and for that I will be ever grateful. I recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone who is looking to enhance their image, create photos to include with their content, and to help build a personal brand... John will zero in on who you are, and help you share that with the world.

John DeMato is the MOST BADASS photographer I've ever met and I do not throw recommendations around lightly.  Working with John has been a delight-- as a *former* camera shy person I can say that John got me over my phobia because he's JUST THAT GOOD. He also understands what business owners need from photos, , and isn't just concerned with his art like many other photographers I've worked with. He is two steps ahead.
