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.

Tate Britain and Barbara Hepworth

I’m excited to view Dame Barbara Hepworth photographs at Tate Britain in July (View more details), Mrs Hepworth is not classed as a photographer, but more of a sculptor of wood and stone installments. The reason why I’m writing this blog is show the importance of photography to Hepworth, and how she used it to shape public opinion of her work. As Sophie Bowness, Hepworth’s granddaughter and co-curator of the Tate show explains: “Hepworth had a life-long appreciation of the importance of photography in the recording and reception of her work.” Read more

Waddesdon Manor Mini Break

Waddesdon Manor Photographic Mini Break

Having visited Villa & Jardins Ephrussi de Rothschild, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France, I knew it wouldn’t be long before we would visit Waddesdon Manor in Sunny Buckinghamshire. The house was built in the Neo-Renaissance style of a French château between 1874 and 1889 for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild (1839–1898). Since this was the preferred style of the Rothschilds it became also known as the Goût Rothschild. The house, set in formal gardens and an English landscape park, was built on a barren hilltop overlooking Waddesdon village.
