How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I would describe my work as Fine Art Creative Photography.
Mainly I use two techniques to create my unique style of photography: Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) and Double Exposure. ICM is an abstract style of shooting where the shutter speed and the speed of camera movement are the main factors which determine the finished result. I alternate shutter speeds, depending on what effect I’m looking for. I also move my camera in various ways - from millimetre twitches to huge, sweeping gestures using the whole of my arm.
Double Exposure: This is a combination of two images or more, where one is placed on top of the other at less than full opacity, which adds more texture, colour and depth. This is done with artistic intent either in-camera or at the post processing stage. My work can be atmospheric, experimental… or both!

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

For the first time in my life I've found an all-encompassing passion in my work as a creative photographer, which allows me to express myself in whatever and however I choose to work at any given moment. I'm able to immerse myself in my creative world, to live in the moment and am never happier than when out walking with my camera. The forever changing colours of the hills, big skies and magical light; trees that are a brilliant source for natural structure, textures and colours, it's all there, just waiting to be explored.

It also allows me to bend the rules and put away my tripod. Just me, camera and subject; I’m in my element!

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

Anna Briggs Creative Photography

Anna is an image maker, specialising in creating landscape and abstract art photography.

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

I'm looking to jointly host a photography workshop sometime this year at my studio in the Herefordshire countryside. And in time I would not be opposed to teaching my interpretation of art photography.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

After buying my first mirrorless camera, I embarked on a journey of real discovery and passion, learning as much as I could about the technical aspect of photography. I also experimented with different genres, enjoying in particular macro and urban/street. Over time I've photographed weddings, funerals, pets and much more. Although enjoyable, I felt something was missing; thankfully, I've found my niche with my interpretation of art photography.

Exhibitions in the last 3 years: 

No exhibitions as yet although I've been Artist in Residence at two local venues.

Your gallery outlets/stockists: 

I have my own work studio and my online gallery shop:
