About Don Mamone:


I’m a business consultant, keynote speaker and professional photographer with a specialty in helping creative and hospitality businesses grow, refine and scale their services. I genuinely want to know how I can help you reach your goals!


10 years ago, I was working with one of the world’s biggest hotel chains. I loved the hospitality industry and how it allowed me to bestow the very best service upon my clients. Overnight, though, the project I was working on suddenly disappeared. While I’d been practicing corporate event photography as a part-time passion, I never thought I was ready to go full time. This event changed everything. I had to make a choice to either commit 100% to photography, or to hunt for a new corporate job. I chose to hustle.
