Photographers for the Photo Companion to the Bible

The Photo Companion to the Bible would not be possible with the contributions from dozens of excellent photographers. We are grateful to each one of them for licensing their images for use in this resource. Each photograph is identified by a code in the explanatory notes, the prefix of which is the author’s initials. The following provides the names for these initials.

Each photograph has a unique image identification code. Some of these include the date the photograph was taken. For photos prefixed with “tb”, the first six digits correspond to the date (month, day, year). For example, tb011512678 indicates that the photo was taken on January 15, 2012. The last three digits provide a unique photo number. Many other photos in our collection, taken by other photographers, follow this same system.

Photos prefixed with “adr” and “db” give the year, month, and day. For example, adr1805229100 was taken on May 22, 2018, and db6707031710 was taken on July 3, 1967.

Photographs that begin with “tbs” have a different numbering system in which the last four digits provide the year and month. For example, tbs43309009 was taken in September 1990.
