About Paul Deveaux Photography
Paul Deveaux - San Jose based portrait and endurance sports photographer
People are fascinating. The multitude of cultures and faces one encounters, especially in the Bay Area, is extraordinary. My portrait and head shot work centers around providing an image that conveys the true, unique personality of a person. Whether you need a confident yet approachable look for your business profile or a dramatic, serious look to land your next theatre gig, I can craft an image that conveys who you are in a real way.
My grandfather owned a bicycle shop in the Bahamas. Cycling has always been a family past time. I raced BMX bikes as a kid and started running cross-country in grade school. In college I was the last guy on the Varsity Cross Country squad (they were the number 5 team in the nation) - I quit the next season. At my first triathlon I borrowed my roommate's mountain bike. In my last race I came in fifth in my age group after pulling a hamstring earlier in the week (hey, those entry fees ain’t cheap and they'renon-refundable!).
I no longer compete, but I love being around races and age group athletes. There is something about the weekend warrior that gets me going. Putting in 40+ hours at a day job and making the time to train and race on the weekends is admirable. I love trying to capture that work ethic at play.
When I am not out shooting I love spending time with my wife and son. Oftentimes accompanied by a good bottle of wine or a great whiskey (Rye is my current favorite).
