Midweek Motivation: ABC NY Correspondent, Maria Gonzalez Picatoste

Reading about another person’s experiences or take on how to be successful give us a kick midweek to give a little extra at our designer 3D glasses company! This week we have interviewed ABC NY Correspondent, Maria Gonzalez Picatoste. Enjoy!

1. Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Maria Gonzalez Picatoste. I work as a journalist for a Spanish newspaper. I am their foreign correspondent in New York. I also collaborate with the Spanish start-up ArtTroop.

2. Your favorite trip ever and why?

My fondest memories come from a two-month trip to Ireland. Although the destination wasn’t all that exciting, it was the circumstances which made it so memorable. I was 16 then. It was also the first time I traveled alone and the first time I had to work in order to support myself. Although work was hard and I disliked my obnoxious boss, I loved Dublin, Cork and the tiny village of Skull.

After Ireland came many other counties and several exotic destinations, but I have never had such a character building experience, a more wholesome time with myself and my limitations. However, I must say that the label of “my favorite trip ever” is temporary and that I look forward to challenging it soon.

3. What is your favorite 3D movie and which one are you looking forward to? 

I loved “Hugo”. I am very passionate about movies and cinema history. In that aspect, “Hugo” was beautiful, honest, deep and moving. As per its 3D effects, I must admit I was surprised. I had seen other 3D movies before, but “Hugo” found the perfect balance between storytelling and cinematography.

4. Who is your style icon?

Honestly, I am not sure I have one. I consider my style to be simple, but eclectic. I do not have any reference when choosing what I wear. Now that I think about it, a name that comes to mind is Katherine Hepburn. I like to wear masculine and practical clothes during the day, but extremely feminine ones for the night and special occasions. She is definitely a big reference.

5. What are three things you can’t live without?

Laptop, cell phone and a pen. First thing that came to mind was my brother, but he is certainly not a thing.

6. What is your advice to someone who is pursuing their passion as a career?

My advise is to pursue it as if you were in love with it: head-over-heels. For sure there will be hard moments, situations in which you will be filled with doubts and concerns, or in which discouraging voices will try to bring you down. It will entail hard work. However, always ask yourself what is it that you want to do the most. If the honest response is that your passion is the only possible thing you imagine yourself doing, go for it. Eventually, everything will fall into place.

Midweek Motivation: 3D Fashion Photographer, Doug Betzold

We at INGRI:DAHL love to interview inspiring and motivational people for our weekly Midweek Motivation column. Reading about another person’s experiences or take on how to be successful give us a kick midweek to give a little extra at our designer 3D glasses company! This week we have interviewed 3D fashion photographer, Doug Betzold. Enjoy!

DDD-series002

1. Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Doug Betzold, and I create 3D and 2D Photography and Video for multimedia. I craft new and different ways to produce what I call “Photomedia” and visual communications. In 2012, I was nominated 1 of 6 finalists worldwide for ‘3D Photographer of the Year’ by Sony and the World Photography Organization.

I work with companies that are defining the new landscape of digital creation and marketing in 3D and 2D, as well as designers that look to the future for new possibilities in marketing and branding their products like Alexis Monsanto Atelier and INGRI:DAHL Eyewear.

2. Your favorite trip ever and why?

Tough question, I spent ten years traveling the Western US as a nature and wildlife photographer before getting my BFA in Photography and pursuing 3D and Multimedia. Out of these trips the very best was going to photograph the Kermode Spirit Bears in British Columbia. It was amazing to experience these beautiful creatures in such pristine surroundings, but nothing can compare with the trips I have gotten to share with my wife Meredith. Most notably, would be our first trip to camping in the west together when I had just started photography.

3. What is your favorite 3D movie and which one are you looking forward to?

Well so far my favorite 3D movie would be Hugo by Martin Scorsese, but I must admit I have very high hopes for Life of Pi and The Hobbit (and that I should have seen both of them by now).

4. Who is your style icon?

LOL it’s funny but I’m not really sure. I spent more time in fleece, nylon and denim during my years of nature and wildlife photography than I care to remember and never thought of form, only of comfort and function, because out there it could save your life (or kill you) if you made the right (or wrong) choices.

While getting my degree in photography, I discovered fashion photography and have been exploring my own sense of fashion ever since. I am conservative and/or casual, and I tend to wear ordinary things and add small details that help define my character. I like my white Burberry shirts with the cuffs and necklines that have the trademark pattern that just peep out, and I love my ‘vintage’ leather jacket that I got for $48 bucks and had restored. I still wear a lot of comfortable work clothes for shooting and cargo pants are a must but I also enjoy getting dressed up and styling a lot more than I used to. Maybe Ralph Lauren, with a dash of James Bond or James Dean depending on the attire.

5. What are three things you can’t live without?

My wife Meredith and my kids Michael and Leigh.

6. What is your advice to someone who is pursuing their passion as a career?

That passion is more than just liking something or staring a blog or even going to school. I met lots of students at my school that will never use their degree in the arts for one reason. It takes A LOT of self-motivation. If you can’t get out of bed and spend every minute you have available in your life to that passion as a career then you probably won’t make it work. If you do, then you probably will.

Midweek Motivation #13: Stacey Ferreira

We at INGRI:DAHL love to interview inspiring and motivational people for our weekly Midweek Motivation column. Reading about another person’s experiences or take on how to be successful give us a kick midweek to give a little extra at our designer 3D glasses company! This week we have interviewed Stacey Ferreira – the girl who by age 18 had gotten funded by Sir Richard Branson largely because of Twitter!! Enjoy!

20121012-202333.jpg

1. Who are you and what do you do? My name is Stacey Ferreira. I’m the co-founder of MySocialCloud.com. Most people know me as the girl who “replied to a Tweet sent out by Sir Richard Branson and received just under $1mil in investment for my company when I was just 18 years old.” But today, at 20 years old, I help run the day-to-day operations of the business and share our story with the world!

20121012-202458.jpg

2. Your favorite trip ever and why?
I’ve been on a ton of trips because my mom loves to travel, but one of my favorites was when we drove from Arizona to Maine in one summer. It was so long and I became car sick really quickly, but I saw a lot of the country and was able to spend a lot of time with my family!

20121012-202515.jpg

3. What is your favorite 3D movie and which one are you looking forward to?
I saw Avengers in 3D last year in New York. I LOVED it. And I know this movie is already out, but I can’t wait to see Finding Nemo in 3D – the fish are animated, but they’re adorable!

4.Who is your style icon?
Ah! I have lots of style icons. I frequent tumblr and lookbook – so I try to pull my style from a collection of people on those. It’s always fun to mix and match styles depending on season and mood!

20121012-202522.jpg

5. What are three things you can’t live without?
My Laptop. My Chocolate Chip Cliff Bars. And my iTunes library. (And of course my family and friends!)

6. What is your advice to someone who is pursuing their passion as a career?
Don’t ever be the person that says “I’m waiting for ______ to happen for me to [pursue my career, meet someone I’ve always wanted to meet, etc.].” Always be the person that says “I’m doing _____ so that I can [pursue my dream career, meeting someone new, etc.].” Those who wait for things to happen will be waiting their whole life, while those who go out and make things happen will be truly living their whole life.

Midweek Motivation #12: Stefano Lo Muzio

We at INGRI:DAHL love to interview inspiring and motivational people for our weekly Midweek Motivation column. Reading about another person’s experiences or take on how to be successful give us a kick midweek to give a little extra at our designer 3D glasses company! This week we have interviewed the up and coming designer Stefano Lo Muzio. Enjoy!
1. Who are you and what do you do?
Hullo! My name is Stefano Lo Muzio and I am trying to make my own way into the fashion world as a designer. I collect as many experiences as I a can, while focusing on designing my eponymous menswear collection.
2. Your favorite trip ever and why?
I like to travel and I do it quite a lot, in fact. It’s hard to pick one, but maybe it should be my first solo trip. I was 16 when on a Tuesday night I booked my first low-cost flight for a Friday afternoon, that would have led me to thrilling London. I spent almost 4 months there, a short period, but so intense it allowed me to grow up in many ways. It is also where I found my curiosity for fashion, a language unknown to me before.


3.Who is your style icon?
My style icon is an imaginary creature my brain has moulded from all my experiences.
4. What are three things you can’t live without?
Other than air, water and food, I would say curiosity, sources to draw from and resources to appease my greedy need, my needy greed.


5. What is your advice to someone who is pursuing their passion as a career?
Take your mind for a walk and know what you are interested in. Quoting a cyclothymic brilliant mind, ‘the only reason people do not know much is because they do not care to know. They are incurious. Incuriosity is the oddest and most foolish failing there is.’ Be curious, know and you will hardly fail. Such advice might sound a bit pompous and apophthegmatic, I see, but who knows, you might find it as useful as I do.

Midweek Motivation: Mauricio Fredes

We at INGRI:DAHL love to interview inspiring and motivational people for our weekly Midweek Motivation column. Reading about another person’s experiences or take on how to be successful give us a kick midweek to give a little extra at our designer 3D glasses company! This week we have interviewed the talented Mauricio Fredes from Chile. Enjoy!

1. Who are you and what do you do? I’m Mauricio Fredes, I’m 22, and I’m from Santiago, Chile. I’m an Image Design student.

2. Your favorite trip ever and why? I’ve always wanted to visit the Greek islands, landscapes attract me, the sea of course, all the history that surrounds them, and its architectural.

3. What is your favorite 3D movie and which one are you looking forward to? My favorite is Avatar and I’m waiting for The Hobbit!

4.Who is your style icon? My style icon is Emmanuelle Alt, the editor in chief of Vogue Paris, she always has a super urban look but also sophisticated. She can mix so amazing jackets of thousands of dollars with Topshop jeans and look super chic. Also I think her vision of fashion is reflected clearly in the magazine, making the Vogue Paris much more bold and edgy than the rest.

5. What are three things you can’t live without? My Iphone, my bed, my skinny jeans (..and all my shoes, and my family and friends.)

6. What is your advice to someone who is pursuing their passion as a career? My advice is to stick to the end, the most important thing is life is to do things that one loves is the only way to be truly happy. Be passionate about what you do leads you to do things better and to my right, better results are achieved. I also think that only with love for what you do, you can make real contributions to our careers, either new creations, strategies or simply new ways of looking at things. My best example of this is Grace Coddington.

Get inspired by Mauricio’s words and work a little harder the next hour (or day or rest of the week) to complete your goals for this week.

Cheers,
