Bobby George
CEO/Owner of Bobby Bandz Productions
Co-Owner of RVA Iron Gym

Bobby George is originally a Connecticut native. He attended Virginia Wesleyan University to play baseball and upon graduating with a business degree started working as an accountant while running his first ever business.

Through the years Bobby found his passion behind the lens so while working multiple jobs he started his brand, Bobby Bandz Productions, that is now currently one of the top 3 wedding photography companies in the world. The brand was originally just focused on wedding photography, but has now evolved into handling photography, cinematography for small to medium sized companies, multi million dollar brands, and social media influencers along with his newly engaged clientele.

The gym has always been a big part of Bobby’s life due to his commitment to sports so when it all stopped after graduating in 2011 he turned to the weight room to fight through his recent loss of sports and his dad who passed away from a motorcycle accident the year before.

Bobby has competed in bodybuilding competitions in men’s physique and has modeled for numerous brands and big time photographers across the country.
Owning and creating a gym that not only can help people create the physique and body they dreamed of having but also an atmosphere that pushes them to the next level in all areas of their life is something he has always dreamed of doing.

Bobby knows from experience how important a good gym is not just for the physical aspect but also the mental he will make sure RVA Iron in Richmond will be at the highest standards to all those who call it home!
