Soft and Hard Light

Words by Lisa Morris, Photos by Jason Spafford Light isn’t something you can hold. You can’t touch it, or feel it – it lacks physicality yet bears a presence. So to take pleasing pictures, you need to start treating light as the subject – a shape-shifting object with the power to make or break the ambience. What’s stirring in one…

How to Photograph Fire

Words & photos by Lisa Morris   Whether you’re wrapped up in the warmth of a crackling fire indoors, red coals gleaming from the ash below, or sat around a cosy camp as tongues of flame flicker, it’s hard not to be spellbound by the amber light. It’s easy to lose yourself in the snap and pop of burning wood,…

Overlander Lubricant – Drink Responsibly

It has been a long, hot, and trying day. The rig has been behaving badly, the last of 20 checkpoints involved a locked and loaded Kalashnikov, your convoy partner has been very hard work, and there is a difficult multi-day remote mountain pass ahead. It is at times like these that all an overlander needs are a campfire, “Sleep Walk”…

Swapping the life conventional for the ride of a lifetime 

Many daydream about making a road trip across continents. There may be real or perceived hurdles in the way, so what does it take to actually do it? For anyone whose life’s jigsaw pieces can coalesce around such a dream—and respectfully, not everyone’s can—a commitment to the decision is all it takes. Then comes doing whatever is necessary to make…

Leaving footprints in Torotoro and a present from La Paz

Refuelled and rested in Bolivia’s constitutionally recognised capital, Sucre, we scurried the 200 odd miles over rutas 5, 23 and 7 leading us into the urban sprawl that is Cochambamba.  The streets were saturated with photocopier shops, crammed in between kiosks bursting with processed junk, chips and salsa, banks of candy and great walls of electrified soda.  Hotels and motels…

The African Pothole, by Kingsley Holgate

The French have their Eiffel Tower, the Dutch their tulips, the Irish their Guinness, the Cubans their cigars, the Spanish their bull fighting, and the British their tea. But, hey! We in Africa have the “Pothole”
