Bevis graduated from Central St. Martins with a Fine Art degree in Filmmaking. His film debut: 'Realise en Montagne' was selected for both the Banff and Kendal Mountain Film Festivals. The film was a portrait of life and landscape in the high mountain ranges of Spiti, Northern India.
Bevis increasingly started to look for a broader exploration and perspective of the landscape so, began applying his mountain skill-based knowledge to the craft of Cinematography and Filmmaking.
He has now worked professionally on a wide variety of projects including documentaries, art films, music videos and, drama. He has always been interested in the whole process of filmmaking and its ability to transport the viewer.
Gaining National Qualifications in Mountain Leadership Bevis guided throughout the UK and internationally, with notable ascents in the European Alps, North America and expeditions to the Himalayas.
His interest in wilderness travel also began his exploration of the backcountry on skis. Bevis is an experienced Telemark skier exploring the off-piste in the European Alps and North America.
