|Myk Briggs LRPS|
|Myk is a physicist who has been
taking photographs since 1952. He has an interest
in photography which could be described as obsessive
and has spent time learning about the technical
aspects of digital photography.
He has chased around the world taking pictures of wildlife and visited many of the common destinations - Africa, America, Australia, Bolivia, Borneo, Canada, Chile, Ecuador, Europe, Galapagos, India, New Zealand, Scandinavia, Seychelles, Skokholm, Sri Lanka. In ‘97 he visited the Arctic Circle to photograph woodpeckers.
In ‘99 he lived with an un-photographed
jungle tribe in India (the Baigas)
to document their lifestyle
and has exhibited the results at several venues.
A book about the tribe will use his pictures
as documentary illustrations.
He has had a lot of commercial work published and you can find many of his pictures on the Internet.
His pictures have been exhibited locally in both personal shows and with art groups.
| In 2001 he opened his 6,500sq
ft studio, the 'BAKERY' mixing his avid interest in programming computers
with his photography. The BAKERY finally closed
on 30th Jan 2009 suffering from pernicious council
rates and poor sales.
These days the programming is focused on image handling and 'content management' websites using PHP and MySQL. He runs various 'net servers, and manages quite a large number of websites using his own code.
|He has completed the project is to document the paintings of Chris Dunbabin (1947-2007) and has published edition 7 of his lovely book - a few are still available|
|He has published and sells a collection of posters derived from pictures of smoke|
|A recent project was to print a 100ft long photograph of date plaques in Oswestry|
|Now you can find his Baiga Lecture|
