the last day

day8.jpg

When we first arrived on the island, we saw some characters we really wanted to photograph. Some men on the dock. Others were at the farmers market.

We have been drinking and partying all week with those men we first saw on the dock. They kept promising us we could ...

we're starting to get it

day 7_.jpg

It’s 1 am and we’re back at our place. Today was very productive.

It’s interesting to step back and go over where our trip started and where we’ve ended up so far. There’s no real way to describe the vibe here. The best description we ...

It’s Thursday night, and if you’ve been paying attention we sort of skipped Wednesday. As it sometimes happens on this island, the day went missing. What we can say about the day is that we saw a monkey, which is strange since we’re nowhere near the tropics ...

scouting and lessons learned

Day2.jpg

It’s amazing what you can learn in a day and sometimes it’s not what you think or want. Since we arrived here, we quickly discovered we needed to tread lightly. The people who live here have their own version of utopia and we certainly don’t want to ...

Dale Roth and Michele Ramberg are officially off the grid.

First a quick background for those who don’t know. We are commercial photographers who, every year, take a photo trip. This year we brought along our assistant Robyn to help. The purpose of the trip is to photograph our ...

For our 2011 calendar we’re heading to… well, actually, the folks we’re going to photograph would rather we don’t say.

What we can tell you is that it’s an island accessible only by boat or plane. A community where people live without electricity or use alternative ...
