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.

Cecilia Kaoru

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
