Level Up Your Life

May 25, 2020

Welcome to the Level Up Your Life podcast hosted by the awe-inspiring, motivating, and passionate Mark Black. As a double transplant survivor Mark has a very exclusive and different take on life. Mark is what all motivational speakers aspire to. He is kind, spirited, and animated with a pure and honest heart. When you listen to Mark speak you can’t help but become excited. Mark cares about helping you get to the next level in all areas of life, work, home, mental, physical and emotional. 

In this episode, Mark interviews event photographer John Demato. John DeMato is a branded lifestyle portrait photographer who collaborates with expert-based business owners to create an emotional connection with their audiences through persuasive visual storytelling.

More than just a photographer, John sets his clients up for success beyond the portrait session by coaching them on how to best leverage their image content for every touchpoint across their online, and off-line, presence.

A former television producer, John has over 20 years of production experience, and has been featured as a portrait photographer expert on several NBC Universal daytime talk and reality shows. He also is a C-Suite Network Advisor, a sponsor for the NYC chapter of the National Speakers Association and is a guest contributor for several photography trade magazines.

When covid-19 struck, live events were put on hold indefinitely, and John’s business came to a grinding halt - as did the business of everyone in the events industry. To make matters worse, John also contracted the virus and it took its toll on his health and his ability to work. But John knew that he wanted to be of service to his colleagues and friends in the events industry and so he tried an experiment that led to a whole new line of business.

Learn how John decided not to be a victim of covid19 and instead innovated and grew his business.
