Gotzon Mantuliz, originally from the Basque Country in northern Spain, is a jack of all trades. After winning the fifth season of the Spanish TV show, El Conquistador del Fin del Mundo, back in 2009, he’s more known these days for his stunning nature photography and adventurous travels alongside his tail-wagging best friend, Noa. Apart from creating and taking us around the world through his camera lens, he’s also committed to giving back.
That’s why when it came to our collaboration with the Wild at Heart Foundation and our Dog Days Collection, we immediately thought of Gotzon. So here are a few get-to-know-you questions for this multi-talented creator and dog dad.
How long has Noa been a part of your life and what has she meant to you, from that first moment to today?
Noa came into my life over eight years ago at a time when I wasn’t sure what my future would look like. Noa came into my life when I was finding my way, and now I feel incredibly lucky to be able to share so much with her – time, work, travels & projects.
Anyone who follows you on social media can see that Noa is an essential part of your life. How does she fit into your day-to-day routine? What activities does she jump in on?
I’d say practically all of them! XD. When I workout, when I’m working at home, when we’re out creating content, when we travel together in a van… The only time we’re apart is when I have to fly somewhere and she can’t come with me.
Part of what we love so much about this collection is the chance to give back. We’re honored to collaborate with Wild at Heart, an organization that homes and takes care of stray dogs around the world. As a dog dad, it’s a cause that’s probably close to your heart...
I love the initiative; I travel all the time and everywhere I go I come across stray dogs that come up to me looking for a bit of affection. I think that the work that foundations like Wild at Heart are doing is not only admirable but very necessary.
We asked you to choose your favorites. Which Dog Days socks did you pick?
Thanks socks much for reading!
