Studio 543 \\ Photo Narrative

Derk's Works-Photo Narrative Studio 54320141105_001

The Photo Narrative is a project near and dear to our hearts. Photo Narrative is a series of images and interviews that share a story about people who work on something inspired from their heart and do so with passion and joy! Today we have the privilege to introduce you to some amazing, strong, beautiful women and a studio that unites them.

Q: Who are you? (Not just your name, rather, how would your soul describe you?)
A: My name is Kristina. My soul would describe me as someone that would go to the end of the earth for answers. I am very much a question asker.

Q: What do you do?
A: I just opened a hot yoga studio with my sister Natasha (aka Sissy)

Q: Why are you doing this?
A: I asked myself if there was one thing I could do every day for the rest of my life, what would it be…and this was my answer!

Q: What is your favorite band?
A: There are so many, but, I love Florence and the Machine.

Q: What are you reading right now?
A: Are you there, Vodka? It’s me Chelsea. She is hysterical.

Q: What’s the next movie you really want to see?
A: I haven’t had time to watch much TV. Lately, so I don’t even know what is out, but my husband always finds something interesting for us on Netflix.

Derk's Works-Photo Narrative Studio 54320141105_008

Q: Who inspires you?
A: My husband. He has a kind heart; I don’t think he has a bad bone in his body. My parents. They are honestly the hardest working people I have ever met in my life, I would be lost without them and my sister, she has 4 kids, I don’t know how she keeps it together!

Q: How can people follow you pursuing your passion?
A: On Facebook.com/studio543 and Instagram @Studio543yogainferno

Q: How can people engage or participate in this passion?
A: They can come in for classes! Check out our schedule on our website Studio543yoga.com

Q: If you had something you could ask for (doesn’t matter how crazy), what would it be?
A: I love shoes so I would go crazy and have a house filled with shoes…expensive shoes! I would also travel the world.

Q: What is something super-awesome that you can do that not too many people know about?
A: I can curl my eyelashes without looking in the mirror. I do them both at the same time. When my nieces watch me do it they tell me I look crazy!

Derk's Works-Photo Narrative Studio 54320141105_009

Q: What’s next for Studio 543 and what is your biggest dream for 2014?
A: We hope that Studio 543 continues to grow, we have had a great first month and we hope to continue to share our passion with the community! We love what we do and we hope that reaches as many people as possible.

Q: Behind any high expectation for success is an equal fear of failure. Courage is refusing to let the fear stop you. What inspires your brightest courage?
A: Not letting fear get in the way of your dreams. You have to follow your heart. If you are passionate about something you have to go for it no matter what, everything else will fall into place!

Meet Maria, she seriously has the most amazing curly hair you’ve ever seen. (I am constantly jealous of her locks) Maria is also an amazing instructor at Studio 543. It has been our pleasure to get to know her as a successful woman and dear friend, and to share her beautiful/amazing spirit and fervor with you.

Derk's Works-Photo Narrative Studio 54320141105_016

Q: Who are you? (Not just your name, rather, how would your soul describe you?)
A: All in all, I’m just trying to have a good time.

Q: What do you do?
A: I’m a Copy Director for an advertising agency and a registered yoga instructor.

Q: Why are you doing this?
A: I’m doing this because I love new experiences and it pushes me out of my comfort zone.

Q: What is your favorite band?
A: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Q: What are you reading right now?
A: Creativity Inc. by Ed Catmull

Q: What’s the next movie you really want to see?
A: Is it bad that I have no idea? I don’t have a TV so I don’t really ever know what’s going on.

Q: Who inspires you?
A: people who are free, people who can forgive, people who can cook really well without recipes

Q: How can people follow you pursuing your passion?
A: well that’s a fun question! By coming to my class, of course. You can also literally follow me @mariaiannarino and you’ll get a good idea of what I’m about.

Derk's Works-Photo Narrative Studio 54320141105_017

Q: How can people engage or participate in this passion.
A: By rolling out the mat—we’re all connected and every time we practice, together or apart, we are one. It helps is remember that “we” is better that “I” and that there is nothing else but love.

Q: If you had something you could ask for (doesn’t matter how crazy), what would it be?
A: A transportation device that allowed me to travel anywhere in a second. Or a hair de-frizzer. Or a pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream

Derk's Works-Photo Narrative Studio 54320141105_018

Q: What is something super-awesome that you can do that not too many people know about?
A: I’m a really good kisser, but I’m a prude so no one knows.

Q: What’s next for you and what is your biggest dream for 2014?
A: you know, I’ve already accomplished most of my dreams for this year. I wanted the last year of my twenties to be filled with moving forward. So I got my yoga teacher training, went to Jamaica, got promoted, and paid off my car. I have an awesome job at an ad agency and as a yoga teacher. the only thing left is finding love. So I guess it’s that. My biggest dream is to be in love.

Q: Behind any high expectation for success is an equal fear of failure. Courage is refusing to let the fear stop you. What inspires your brightest courage?
A: Knowing that the one who has always been, who has seen much worse that this, is still here.

Not Just Work \\ Bearded Wisdom

NOT JUST WORK \\ A blog series about people that work on something inspired from their heart with passion.

Meet Josh, of all the people in the whole world, this guy seriously has the most contagious laugh EVER! He also is the heart and soul of Bearded Wisdom. It has been our pleasure to get to know him and share a little of his amazing spirit and passion with you.

Derks Works - Awesome Photography 20140213_518

Q: Who are you? (Not just your name, rather, how would your soul describe you?)

A: My soul is an odd sort. I think it would say I am a bit sporadic, absent minded, and possibly crazy. But then again my soul is odd so it can’t be trusted. ;)

 

Q: What do you do?

A: I create things. More specifically with the Bearded Wisdom, I create music built off of collaborative efforts with other artists and crowdsourced inspiration. I write, produce, and publish one song a week (using an inspiration from someone else) for an entire year in a blog that explains my creative process. I also have a photographer (Alex Giffin) that snaps a photo of each week using the inspiration that I post on my site and blog.

 

Q: Why are you doing this?

A: It all started as a distraction from work. It was supposed to be a “New Years Resolution” where I simply sat down with my iPhone and guitar and wrote a tune and tucked it away, possibly to be taken out at a later date and produced. But the more I told people about it the more they were interested and wanted to be a part of it, and thus the whole idea for collaboration was born. I’m in love with the project because I get to lock minds with a large net of creatives; music, photography, video, design, friends, strangers, etc; and make art. Not only that, but it has become a valuable testing ground for marketing and branding, which is what I do for my day job.

Derks Works - Awesome Photography 20140213_519 Derks Works - Awesome Photography 20140213_520

Q: What is your favorite band?

A: That’s terribly hard question to answer! Haha. I love all music and my favourite changes almost weekly, sometimes daily. Right now I am really into the Sound City soundtrack with Dave Grohl. However I think if I were to choose my most time-honoured band it would be Rush. I remember some grand days playing Rush tunes with my friends, and that’s really what made me want to be a professional musician.

 

Q: What are you reading right now?

A: Right now I am reading “Eats, Shoots and Leaves” in an attempt to make my already abysmal grammar less abysmal.

 

Q: What’s the next movie you really want to see?

A: It’s a ways away, but I am really looking forward to the next Star Trek movie.

 

Q: Who inspires you?

A: I think it would be have to be Trent Reznor (from NIN and How to Destroy Angels). His song writing and use of technology as a tool (not to mention his angst) are truly inspiring to me.

Derks Works - Awesome Photography 20140213_521 Derks Works - Awesome Photography 20140213_522

Q: How can people follow you pursuing your passion?

A: I have a handy website at www.thebeardedwisdom.com that I post all of my music through. I also am involved on social (@thebeardsings): Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Vine.

 

Q: How can people engage or participate in this passion?

A: On my website there is a “Submit Inspiration” page where you can go and submit your own inspiration for my music. This whole project is based off of crowdsourced inspiration and without it there would be no Bearded Wisdom.

Derks Works - Awesome Photography 20140213_523 Derks Works - Awesome Photography 20140213_524 Derks Works - Awesome Photography 20140213_525

Q: If you had something you could ask for (doesn’t matter how crazy), what would it be?

A: The chance to song write with one of my favourite artists. That or the ability to go back in time to riot at the premier of Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring” in 1912. I believe it was the first mosh pit.

 

Q: What is something super-awesome that you can do that not too many people know about?

A: I love to play chess. There is something about the order of chess that I deeply admire (perhaps because I lack it in my own personality). Chess is a game that you cannot blame a loss on luck or anything other than the other player simply playing better than you. And I find beauty in that simple truth; there is nowhere to hide.

 

Q: What’s next for Breaded Wisdom and what is your biggest dream for 2014?

A: There is so much potential for the Bearded Wisdom. I am looking to do an album at the end of the year, I will start playing small shows in March, and my biggest goal is to write a song with Jonathan Coulton. I based this project off of his “Thing a Week” podcast so he is kind of a hero to me. But really, the sky is the limit with this kind of thing because it is not a concept many people do or are familiar with, so I am free from preconceived ideas and expectations; I can literally take this project anywhere I want to and there are so many unknown possibilities that I have yet to discover.

Derks Works - Awesome Photography 20140213_526

Q: Behind any high expectation for success is an equal fear of failure. Courage is refusing to let the fear stop you. What inspires your brightest courage?

A: My brightest courage comes from the people who love me and support me. There will always be trolls and people who simply don’t enjoy your art, and that’s fine. But at the end of the day it is always nice to hear a stranger say “wow that was cool!” or a loved one say “I’m proud of you!”. Without my support system, my family, my friends, my connections, my fans; I would be nothing. They act as a dam between myself and my fear and it allows me to put my art into the public ear.

Not Just Work \\ The Micro Harvest

NOT JUST WORK \\ A blog series about people that work on something inspired from their heart with passion.

Meet Simi, she is the best storyteller, encourager, and instant kind friend you’ve ever met. Also, she is the heart and soul of The Micro Harvest. It has been our pleasure to get to know Simi and her husband Tim and share a little of their beautiful spirit and fervor with you.

Derks Works NOT JUST WORK Photography20140127-089

Derks Works NOT JUST WORK Photography20140127-090Derks Works NOT JUST WORK Photography20140127-091

Q: Who are you? (Not just your name, rather, how would your soul describe you?)

A: My name is Simi – My soul would describe me as… eager, enthusiastic, impulsive, emotional, trusting, loving, organized, weird, & devoted.

Q: What do you do?

A: I am a holistic health coach and healthcare attorney. In both of my worlds, I do my best to support my clients to reach their goals. I am also the co-creator (with my awesome husband, Tim) of the conscious lifestyle site, The Micro Harvest, where we share tips, stories, and inspiration to encourage a happy, healthy, and eco-friendly life.

Q: Why are you doing this?

A: The Micro Harvest has two components to it: The blog and my health coaching. 

Tim and I really wanted to work together on a project that combined our shared values, which often manifested themselves in different activities. We both believe that living a great life has three main components: taking care of yourself, taking care of others, and taking care of the community/earth. The Micro Harvest was born as a place for us to share these ideas and encourage small, simple changes that would add up over time. We post recipes, travel recaps, Q&A’s, healthy living tips, and Tim gives a peek into his “crawl space creations” with how-to posts (he loves woodworking, etc.).

I became a holistic health coach because I truly believe it is my purpose in life – to use the lessons I have learned from my personal struggles to help other women overcome their body and food issues so they can live awesome lives. When I finally started listening to what God had planned for me, instead of what others expected of me, there was no denying this is what I needed to do!

Derks Works NOT JUST WORK Photography20140127-092 Derks Works NOT JUST WORK Photography20140127-093 Derks Works NOT JUST WORK Photography20140127-094

Q: What is your favorite band?

A: I’m like the last person who should be answering this question. Is it from the 90’s? Then I love it.

Q: What are you reading right now?

A: I am reading “The Desire Map” by Danielle LaPorte, “Reached” by Ally Condie (dystopian novels = guilty pleasure), and people.com (always).

Q: What’s the next movie you really want to see?

A: The Wolf of Wall Street (heyyy there, Leo!).

Q: Who inspires you?

A: My husband Tim (he pushes me more than anyone I know), my mama, Gabrielle Bernstein, Gwyneth Paltrow (I know people hate on her, but I love that she doesn’t let others’ negative comments block her success!), Nancy Myers, the list goes on…

Q: How can people follow you pursuing your passion?

A: Definitely on our site, The Micro Harvest. On average, Tim and I post 2x/week on www.themicroharvest.com. For a more intimate peek into our lives, check us out on Instagram! I love, love, love Instagram (@themicroharvest). I don’t really get Twitter, but sometimes I “tweet” links to our recent posts ;)

Q: How can people engage or participate in this passion?

A: Contact me! Send me questions, ideas, and topics you want us to blog about. Also, if you’re interested in working with me as a health coach, reach out and we can set up a time to talk about your struggles and how I can support you to get the life you’re dreaming about.

Q: If you had something you could ask for (doesn’t matter how crazy), what would it be?

A: Uh oh. I just got way too many ideas. At the top of the list… Someone to take care of all of life’s everyday chores (clean, laundry, errands, etc), all my favorite friends/family living in one neighborhood, 3-day weekends every weekend (what the hell, let’s make it 4!!), live in a 90’s TV show like Felicity or Dawson’s Creek, a potty-trained Irish Wolfhound, orrrr…. the ability to snap my fingers and be anywhere in the world in 0 seconds.

Q: What is something super-awesome that you can do that not too many people know about?

A: I have an incredible singing voice, but I have hidden it my entire life so that I don’t make the people around me feel badly…

Q: What’s next for The Micro Harvest and what is your biggest dream for 2014?

A: 2014 holds big things for The Micro Harvest! You should definitely be on the lookout for some of Tim’s crawl space creations to become available for purchase. He got this insane sewing machine and has been working on a men’s bag line. Also, I’m working to create a 28-day guided cleanse E-Book, which will be available in October 2014, and am in talks to create a destination retreat for amazing women looking for some R&R, a healthy habits kick-start, and an abundance of self-love! My biggest dream for 2014 is that 2014 will be bigger than I could ever dream.

Q: Behind any high expectation for success is an equal fear of failure. Courage is refusing to let the fear stop you. What inspires your brightest courage?

A: Seeing a woman walk with confidence. Seeing a woman savor two bites of chocolate cake and stopping because her body tells her “that’s enough.” Seeing a woman find pleasure in her life from her primary food (relationships, career, spirituality). Seeing a woman look in the mirror and say “you’re beautiful & you’re enough!” The women I work with inspire me!

Ghinda \\ EDITORIAL

ColumbusWeddingPhotography20130821_180

July, 2013 \\ Columbus, Ohio \\ “Beauty on the inside, that feeling… that knowing, is most important. Brides with such inner confidence and beauty, deserve a dress to match.” – my thesis statement for this editorial shoot \\ It was, without a doubt, a joy and honor to be part of such a talented group of people for this shoot. Through this editorial I hoped to express a portion of the beauty, grace and elegance of these hand crafted dresses By Ghinda.

AwesomeWeddingPhotography20130726_053

July, 2013 \\ Columbus, Ohio \\ All Together Now

These two girls are not only awesome to hang out with and extremely talented artists but they also pour their complete heart and soul into their work, clients, and craft. Their business, All Together Now, is a creative, fun, and personal event designing and party planning idea factory! They’ll help you think through all the details, stay on top of your vendor relationships, organize your timetable, to-do list and probably even your sock drawer. Lindsay (left) has a design background and will give you the most beautiful version of what you’ve asked for. Marti (right) is a big picture idea generator paired with a background in production, making her your perfect ally in getting things done. Together they’ll rock the house and give you the gift of enjoying your party as much as your guests.

To my friends who like parties, are getting married, or need some festive ideas these two are your perfect answer. To my professional friends, colleagues, and contemporaries, I encourage you to get to know these guys. The collaborative potential of working with people who love their work as much as these two, will result in an unstoppable party.

To anyone who wants to meet Marti and Lindsay and see a little more of their style (and I know that’s all of you…), you should check out Make My Day. Hosted by All Together Now, it is going to be the best, most fun, awesome-est, and all out inspiring wedding show in all of Ohio.
