Conquest was a place and it was very special to me. For many years I worked in the paintball industry, in a store selling equipment and as the general manager of Conquest, a paintball field in Los Angeles. It's always interesting trying to explain to someone what I did for a living, sport and for enjoyment. Somehow I can't explain what that life meant to me, even now many years since I left it behind. This series of photographs is from my time in that world and somehow still manages to fall short of what I wish to say.
