Dennis Belton Jr., Creative Director, Photographer & Brand Specialist for Belton Media Group, just launched his new athletic wear and lifestyle brand – Goated Forever. Dennis is from Detroit, MI where he started his career in photography. When he first started out he knew he needed to gain experience and build his portfolio, so he would charge people $25 a session – just enough to pay for gas. His goal was to get his name out there and showcase his capabilities.
When we asked Dennis what his biggest accomplishment has been he said “Launching Goated Forever during a pandemic. Goated Forever is my classic music album if I had to put it like that”. Dennis is always thinking about his clients, his dream is to make Goated Forever the number one brand in the world. Dennis would ultimately like to land a partnership with a brand like Nike in the future.
Goat is an acronym for greatest of all time, Dennis wants Goated Forever to be viewed as a brand of the upper echelon surrounded by a community of great people. Dennis says “You become Goated the moment you find your purpose and live in it and for that reason we all have the potential to become Goated Forever”.
Goated Forever will connect sports and entertainment to the world through branding outlets such as sports, fashion, music and entertainment. Dennis is also an advocate for social justice, “Our Black Lives Matter division will be ‘Black is Goated Forever’, focusing on African American icons, and community leaders that have impacted the community. This will be possible through commercials highlighting racial equality, social justice, education and paying tribute to our black leaders from the past and now”.
