Transfigure Photography ethos is to find the converging line between the world of film, fine art and commercial photography and bound all those agents together to cook up a dream and add it to a reality. I work with an idea, visualise it and create it. Transfigure Photography says as much about me than the name denotes. I have metamorphosed myself from a snapshot photographer to a professional photographer, photographing many different subjects, from seascapes, portraiture, to monster dump trucks.

Photography for me is walking hand in hand with film making, converging the demand for creative exploration and pushing the boundaries in liberating client’s realities to give their photo shoot a new perspective digitally.


I just don’t use my camera to take photographs I work, blend and arouse, still and moving images.

I'm available for commissioned work.

Samuel Plimsoll and the development of vessel Load Line legislation

Samuel Plimsoll and the development of vessel Load Line legislation.

To many of us who imagine we can look at a ship, see the marks halfway along the hull that indicate how much load the vessel can carry, it may come as some surprise that the man who had the idea faced lawsuits from shipowners anxious to stop him because they were convinced he would put them out of business or leave them facing financial ruin.

The enormous loss of life sustained by the seafaring fraternity of years ago was not, it seems, at the forefront of their minds. Read more

Ecology in Ancient Greece

Before beginning my research on ancient environmentalists, I wondered who actually invented the term Ecology? As you know I love to research and found out it was in 1866 when German biologist Ernst von Heckel used the term Ecology and wrote it in the book of Generelle Morphologie der Organismen. He applied the term oekologie to the “relation of the animal both to its organic as well as its inorganic environment.” The word comes from the Greek oikos, meaning “household,” “home,” or “place to live.”, as stated in the encyclopaedia Britannica.

Cecilia Kaoru

I’ve been following the Japanese artist Cecilia Kaoru for nearly a year on LinkedIn and in those years, we have struck up a mutual friendship. Cecilia artwork is more than art in it’s self, it’s somewhat of a philosophy of nature the indifferent subsistence and isolation in regards to each other. The tones and complexities of colours used, is a wash of orient with swills and dabs, it’s musical. Read more
