The Calgary Folk Music Festival is filling the city with music all weekend long. Our long time client Field Law proudly supports the festival and many other community events. We shot their ad with David Landreth at DDB.

Now go enjoy the music…

Roth et Ramberg finir avec le style

Roth et Ramberg finir avec le style!

The first thing we did this morning was get gas—over 100 Euros of it. A 2003 Ford Explorer fuel tank holds about 85 litres and this morning our tank gulped down 80. Not sure if that’s luck or karma, but we’ll take it.

Today was day ten of our adventure in Saint Pierre and Miquelon. It was also Bastille Day, formally called La Fête Nationale, the biggest holiday of the year. Add that to the language barrier, and sourcing models gets more challenging. We had to be more strategic because working on normal ...

Roth et Ramberg sont à l'heure locale

Our stalking abilities aren’t by any means covert, but the longer we’re here the easier things are getting. After driving by the old red house at the point half a dozen times, we finally managed to connect with one of our missing models from Tuesday. When we spoke about a ...

Roth et Ramberg sont comme les locaux

We managed a handful of notable accomplishments today.

1. Squeezed in a photoshoot at the bakery before catching the 9:30am ferry back to Saint Pierre.

2. Dale used the word ‘vert’ correctly. Unfortunately, it was to describe the colour of Elise’s face during the ferry ride back to Saint Pierre. The ...

Roth et Ramberg expérience le vent de la mer

Thankfully our faces have sun kissed glows from yesterday, because today isn’t nearly as nice. In fact, it doesn’t really feel like summer at all. When the wind blows in off the water, the temperature drops considerably. Chilly temperatures and wind aren’t great for taking photos, but overcast skies tend ...

roth et ramberg arriver au paradis

Although it’s called Saint Pierre and Miquelon, there is also Langlade. The town of Langlade is a summer community for people from Saint Pierre. About 600 people relocate here for the warm months, but nobody stays through the winter. Miquelon on the other hand is the same size, but everyone ...

Roth et Ramberg aiment les français

In case of emergency dial 1-8, there’s no 9-1-1 in Saint Pierre. This morning we met our friend Joël for a private tour of the local fire hall, the only one on the island. We’d met Joël playing guitar beside his wife’s organic grocery shop on Saturday. He’s in a ...

roth and ramberg obtenir une voiture

Today we did a happy dance. Or at least we would have, if we weren’t sitting on nice leather seats driving through the countryside. To fully appreciate this moment, one must know where it began.
 
It started after we got the Ford Explorer unstuck, which was just after we ...

roth et ramberg gravir une montagne

Roth et Ramberg gravir une montagne!

It’s Sunday and since most shops are closed we seized the opportunity to sleep in a bit. Our room is a cozy ‘family’ room with two beds and a pullout couch. The only downside is that Dale saws logs, so we end up dreaming of ...

Roth et Ramberg se faire des amis!

Apparently it’s tough to go unnoticed in a town of 6000 residents, we’re already running into people we know. Of course, we’re using the term ‘know’ very loosely, but by the amount of things we’ve learnt about them it feels that way. That’s all part of small community charm and ...

Roth et Ramberg sont arrivés

 

We’ve landed in Saint Pierre and Miquelon. Apparently most people arrive by ferry, but since we’re super classy folks we flew. The flight from St. John’s was only about 45 minutes and once onboard we were enclosed in France. This left Dale and Michele tongue tied as they quickly ...

roth and ramberg are going to France... sort of

France, like you’ve never seen or even heard of.

We’ve always wanted to do France for the calendar, but that always seemed a bit cliche for us. Luckily ...
