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.

I have been a fan of Joel Peter Witkin ever since my wife purchased me his book entitled ‘Joel Peter Witkin’ as she found out he had seen death at a young age like me, I can’t say it drove me mad but I explore subjects in a different way and it’s a part of dealing with stuff.

Witkin takes arduous amounts of time to compose his images; he views his works as a classic piece of art, Such as the Thoraxic Park.

This appears to be a canvas within a canvas, as if the viewer is looking at the scene from a window. The scene being of two lovers in a scripted garden, the statue to the right pointing at them in way of judging them. The bear head decapitated with a target on its, as if it’s a trophy, may be the woman is a trophy, he wears a Romans hat as if’s a crown with his armour scatted around the floor as if there was some urgency to undress. The picture in the centre of a man’s genitals as if it was a statue.

The photograph is full of symbolism, the viewer could see the photograph as conceptual art and make a connection with a Rambrant painting, for me this is photographic art.

Joel Peter Witkin see the relationship between the painter and his model, for example, link drawings and lithographs by Rembrandt and Picasso with the altarpiece of Witkin Poussin in Hell (1999).

Good morning,
I’d like to know where you found the Thoraxic Park photography : in a book? Or did you buy it? Actually, I’m the female model on it.
Thank you for answering

Hello Lucie, I think I actually found the photograph on a website which I can’t remember for the life of me. If you are the model in the photograph then Joel, picked the right model.
