Thumbs up Fava Photography - My year in paintball

12 events, 2 countries, 15,532 miles, 41,740 pictures, 18 hours, 35 minutes, and 43 seconds of raw footage. This was my year in paintball.

It has been an incredible journey for me, both within the sport and personally. I got to travel the country (and see new one too), make great new friends, see tons of old ones, and work with a lot of truly wonderful people along the way. Right before the season started in March – okay, literally the day before – was my last day at my full time job after nearly 5 years in the world of engineering. While I liked what I did, I also felt like it wasn't really what I wanted to be doing with my life, so I decided to make a change. I've spent the last 9 months working alongside my twin sister filming a lot of great weddings, music videos, and documentaries – for that opportunity I will be forever grateful (see links below if you're interested). On the free weekends I did have I managed to cram in as many paintball events as I could feasibly attend.

Below you'll find a link to a gallery of some of my favorite images that I took this season (and some of my video projects too). They're in roughly chronological order – from the first EPL event in Virginia, up to Canada for a CXBL, and wrapping up in Florida with World Cup. Some photos you've probably seen before, some you haven't, but hopefully you'll see something that catches your eye -- and makes you want to hit that big green 'Buy' button

While reflecting upon this past season, I felt like it was a good time to stop and say thank you. Thank you to every team or individual that hired me. Thank you to every company or website that chose to work with me or feature my media. Thank you to anyone that purchased a photo from my website or reached out over social media. Thank you to anyone that gave me (and my air mattress) a place for the evening. Thank you to anyone who bought me a drink, something to eat, or just came to say hi. I feel fortunate to be able to be in a position in life that I can travel and document this sport. It certainly wouldn't be possible without the kind and truly awesome people who enable me to do what I do – Thank you.

See you next season!

George

So. Many. Questions.

What country did you get to visit?

What 12 events?

Are the photos in any kind of order?

Thanks for providing some of my favorite paintball images of the year. I may be biased but it looks like you've really gotten even better these last two years. Keep it up.

Thank you John I really appreciate that! I feel grateful to be able to help document this awesome sport, especially since we're in a very interesting time right now. Glad to support PbNation since I feel like I've been using this forum for forever Nice to be able to "give back" in a sense.

^^ What he said.

Love the first pic of your gear... and I love the soccer sock protecting your lens. That's brilliant. The top orientation of the tripod ring mount and quick release shoe baffles me, tho.... is it to protect the camera body or do you actually use the camera upside down, lol?

Also, What field of engineering were you in?

Thanks as always and excellent work!!

Good to see you doing well and I'm thrilled with your success. This is some amazing photography work. You coming to Living Legends next year? I could handle paying a good photographer to follow me around...it's the only way I could be made to look good.

Great work though George...just amazing.

Fantastic shots. I've been considering bringing my DSLR to the field more, I just need to find time between all the playing.
