Paul Bullivant – Photographer

Business Name: Paul Bullivant – Photographer
Business Genre:
Long Business Description:

Born in Birmingham, photographer Paul Bullivant has been a resident of St Andrews since 1979 and has lived here with his family for 20 years.

“The buzz of the Gloucester Road is a constant source of interest and a place where, on any day of the week, you bump into friends and acquaintances. That’s partly what makes this whole area a thriving community – and the familiarity helps bond communities.”

And this familiarity helps Paul to draw on his adopted home as inspiration for his photography. He has completed a number of studies of people and places both locally and across Bristol.

But ‘the local’ is only one side of Paul’s inspiration. He has travelled widely during the passed 25 years and many of the photographs from these often exotic journeys can be seen on his web site.

Paul has been involved in a range of other community and arts activities and is an active member of The Friends of St Andrews Park and a trustee of an organisation providing support for people recovering from addiction. He was an early member of North Bristol Artists and can be found exhibiting his work and playing music in St Bart’s Church on the popular trail.
