Peter Beavis studied design and illustration at Kingston Art School, London, and from there spent decades as a sought-after commercial and art photographer in London, New York and Cape Town. He now lives between the UK and Costa Rica, shooting the waves (and often riding them himself). Relying on his eye, timing, and a natural sense of fun and adventure, Peter has created organic and authentic images for some of the biggest brands on earth: Adidas, Apple,
Coca-Cola, and Visa, among many, many others.

Peter’s intuition and easy rapport with subjects—his greatest strengths, honed over hundreds of shoots—give Peter’s photographs a candor and a freshness that comes through in any medium. Five times, his work has been a juried selection for Communication Arts’ Photography Annual. Peter has shot all over the world, for campaigns and art directors both well-known and obscure, and he is as fluent with portraiture as he is with motion, as comfortable with a family at play as he is with the intensity of a high-stakes commercial set. Over diverse projects, genres, venues, and briefs, his fundamental method is the same: he takes setting and form, illuminates them with the subject’s inner light, and shows you something stunning.
