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.

Avant-Garde Cinema

1989.55.12 001

Antheil’s musical masterpiece Ballet mécanique was originally supposed to be a soundtrack to a film of the same name by the French Dadaist painter Fernand Leger and cinematographer Dudley Murphy. It is difficult to say who had the idea first, Antheil claims that in the fall of 1923 he announced he was beginning the piece, and was looking for an appropriate film accompaniment, but other sources say that the filmmakers were the ones who approached Antheil.
