DEVILLE NUNES PHOTO PROFILE

DEVILLE NUNES PHOTO PROFILE

I’m not the best at writing these things, but for Deville, let’s just say this doesn’t come close to what he’s done for me or the people around him. I can say firsthand that he has changed people’s lives for the better, and I personally can’t thank him enough. Thanks for everything, Deville!

I first met Deville in a suburban parking lot in central New Jersey. To see a skateboarder in New Jersey at that time was like finding a needle in a haystack. We instantly became friends and I began filming and shooting photos with him. From the numerous sponsor videos I made for him he eventually got sponsored. Fast forward a few years we were on a trip to Tampa Am and he brought his 35mm camera along for the ride. Our crew was skating the Ybor Post Office double set, and this was my first memory of him shooting a skate photo – a kickflip of our late friend Virgil with a slow shutter. Upon returning to NJ he was hooked. That 35mm camera came on every skate mission we did after that session. His love of photography and skateboarding went hand in hand, and neither have left his side for over 20 years!
