Bill Bevan Photography

I am a photographer, writer and archaeologist.

I specialise in visualising and writing about archaeological and historical sites from around the world. My aim is to evoke the sense of place and people's engagement with a site as well as its historical importance.

I also photographing general travel subjects, events and working communities.

I have been a Leverhulme Trust artist in residence at the University of Sheffield and a photographer in residence on the Stonehenge Riverside Project. Both have led to major exhibitions.

Many of the photographs showcased here are stock images available as royalty-free images for publications and as prints for sale online.

I also undertake commissions and assignments. Please contact me for further details.
