Remembering a Legend
This deserves its own thread in this forum.
For those of you just finding out, the paintball world has lost one of the greatest people ever to exist in the sport. Matt Dawson was what every paintball photographer aspired to be. Every event he shot, wether it was the magazines who hired him or he was there working for the players, he made sure to take the photos he wanted, and to tell a story with those he published. When PGi gave up, Matt became independent and started his own free online magazine. He showed us the true blood, sweat and tears that went into training to be the best. Wether you were playing D3 or Professional, Matt had a story to tell about you and your team. He was there for the players.
Personally, I've been out of the sport for a long time. Matt inspired me to want to become a photographer. Wanting to be able to do what he has done for the sport of paintball has pushed me to become a professional photographer. I'm living what I've wanted to do ever since I became best friends with Matt. Every day moving forward will be in memory of a great friend we've all lost far too early.
