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.

Kodak Brownie six-20

My friend recently visited a car boot sale and purchased a camera for a couple of pounds, and  handed it to me for my collection of vintage camera’s.

I was delighted to receive the camera and I began to explain to him, about the history of the Box Brownie. The Kodak Brownie six-20 was originally made in the UK, and was introduced to the market in 1937. Kodak made the unit for three years before discontinuing it in 1940. It has a meniscus lens and used 620 rollfilm, creating  2.25-inch by  3.25-inch photos. A grained leatherette covering and a folding frame finder makes the camera convenient to transport. The shutter was a Kodette II model, rather than the “T” setting, this shutter has a “B” setting for “brief time exposure.” With the “B” setting, the user has to approximate the amount of time it takes for enough light to enter the camera to make the perfect photograph.

The Kodak Folding Brownie Six-20 with shutter switch Kodette II has no exposure times, only I mode selector (instantaneous) or B (bulb). I mode, the shutter opens and closes at an undetermined speed, probably 1 / 50s. In the B mode, the shutter stays open as long for as long as you keep the shutter button down, so more light, less time to keep your button down, and less light the longer you depress the shutter down for. The shutter consists of a single metal sheet located behind the lens. The lens focal length could be in the range of 100 with fixed focal length. According to the manual, the focus extends from 8 feet (2.4 m) to infinity. No diaphragm, all that regulates the passage of light is the shutter.

The camera it’s self is a Beautiful and the feel is cumbersome compared to modern day camera, but the hidden treasure was finding an exposed roll of Verichrome pan 620 film inside

I have yet to go into the darkroom to process the film, but that is the process which I am/am not looking forward to, the film could be over exposed/under exposed all nudes, portraits of the Queen and the Royal family, who knows, but I’m filled with Trepidation and anxiousness.

Until next time……..watch this space.
