the party is over...

final_night_jpg_930x700_q95.jpg

We finally got Maggie home and back up on her blocks in Portugal Cove. Tired and dirty, we had a bit of a sleep in but were up early enough to drive around Portugal Cove. We were pretty sure we had enough shots for the calendar but perhaps there was ...

dildo days

square_pond_jpg_930x700_q95.jpg

 We overnighted in Square Pond campground, mainly due to their wi-fi connection. Another long night plowing through the video, blog, etc.

 The average bedtime is about 2:30 am. Usually we have a few cocktails while we work. Best guess so far for alcohol consumed: two bottles of Old Sam ...

we got crabs

 It’s nearing the end of our journey. One of the many great things about Newfoundlanders is their generosity. Not only do they invite you into their homes, or sheds, or driveways, many give you something in return. We’ve managed to disrupt the daily routines of many on this ...

fogo island

 We pulled in late last night onto Fogo Island. Friends of friends of Mark’s live at the far end of the island in a town named Tilting. One quick call to Cathy and Joe and we are invited over. We hit the scene close to 10:30pm. We ask ...

another perfect day

durrell_jpg_930x700_q95.jpg

 We heard the sounds of the icebergs breaking all night long. We decided to get an early start to the day for a change. Loading video, working on the blog, facebook, twitter etc. takes a long time. That of course would be fine if Rogers coverage wasn’t non-existent outside ...

ice, ice, baby

dildo_run-1000px_jpg_930x700_q95.jpg

We drove into the night and arrived at Dildo Run Provincial Park (yes we covered every joke). A few hot showers and some drinking by the campfire we went to bed refreshed. In the morning, we drove the last few kilometres to Twillingate, the drive in was unbelievable. Every vision ...

weather or not

It was a dark, stormy night… literally. We woke up on the beach but the rain had begun. Yesterday was not great photowise and today the weather could limit our shooting. We drove around an area called New-Wes Valley which is a collection of small villages located a few miles ...

i'm not eating the beets

lumsden_map-1000px_jpg_930x700_q95.jpg

 We went in search of a lighthouse and a man who makes small sized handmade Dory boats. We ended up in Glovertown and couldn’t find anything. We attempted to photograph a woman who was selling homeade goodies. After buying some beets and fudge we asked if we could photograph ...

left turn at eastport

salvage_jpg_930x700_q95.jpg

We were bee-lining for Twillingate.  What started out as a quick turn off for gas just past Terra Nova National Park turned into a day and a half adventure.

We landed smach dap in the middle of the Beaches Accordion Festival in Salvage.  They had 4 different ‘stages’.  The ‘stages ...

tails and tales

A__1075-1000px_jpg_930x700_q95.jpg

 We’ve only got a couple of minutes with some wireless internet so we’ll be quick.  We arrived in Savage in the hopes of a quick photo. A day later we are still here, but heading out shortly to find a lighthouse keeper in Badgers Quay. Come back to ...

day one, icebergs and scotch

map_first_night_jpg_930x700_q95.jpg

Well after a night of Screeching and serious, serious drinking (fun) we found out there are icebergs in Twillingate. Not only would that be cool to see, but apparently we can get some iceberg ice and perhaps have a great scotch!! So the plan for day one is to drive ...

screeched-in in portugal cove

P1100295-1000px_jpg_930x700_q95.jpg

The first night after we arrived in St John’s we didn’t get too far. Down the road near Portugal Cove we did the traditional Screech-In ceremony. If you’re not familiar with it, it involves drinking, fish and whatever else the locals dream up in order to make ...

map_for_blog_jpg_930x700_q95.jpg

 Roth and Ramberg go to Newfoundland, b’y.

We’re hopping in a motorhome and touring around Newfoundland to shoot our 2010 R&R calendar in search of interesting characters, beautiful scenery and some bottles of rum.

We’ve got our new GPS system hooked up to our 50MP Hasselblad ...
