"I have had the distinct pleasure of working with John a number of times. Initially at events where he photographed me while Keynoting and MC'ing, and then for a personal branding photo session. Many people have photographed me at events, but time and again my team and I count on his photos for just about everything we do... none better. I jumped at the chance of a one-on-one session and was in for a treat.
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.

"I was on a panel at an event John shot. His ability to capture behind the scenes while being totally stealth was impressive. He also shot the cocktail party for TEDxLincolnSquare, and from those pics, I knew I wanted to hire John to capture my brand for The Big Talk. John’s understanding of expression and story-telling is very much how I work as a director, and with his background in television, he knows how to capture intention.
In preparation for our session, John expressed his… well… his obsession with detail. Each look needed to be specific and each detail of the wardrobe, shoes, rings, earrings would be accounted for. He also understood that I would be using these images not only for the website, but also for future blog posts, social media and events. He was thorough and comprehensive.
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!

"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. And we hired him for a recent client who couldn't stop raving about the experience. We will be incorporating his services into services we offer to our clients because it takes our work to another level. 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, spontaneously noticing great shots to get and suggesting backgrounds that can have multiple uses in the future.
John Demato is the MOST BADASS photographer I've ever met and I do not throw recommendations around lightly."
