Paul Vos was born in 1958, Naarden, The Netherlands.

Paul started work in 1980 as an assistant to John Vaughn, the British interior and fashion photographer. From 1984 to 1989 he worked as a photographer for international fashion and interior design magazines and expanded into advertising campaigns. 

While working as a photographer, he was asked to direct fashion short films for television and corporate image films for brands such as O'Neill and Hennes & Mauritz.
