Replace Stolen Camera Equipment

$1,095 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 10 people in 31 months
Over the weekend of May 7th, my car was broken into and over $5,000 worth of camera equipment was stolen.

It took me 7 years to build up everything I have and in a single night it was gone.

I had a Panasonic GH4, Lumix 12-35mm F/2.8 Lens, Lumix 35-100mm F/2.8 Lens, Lumix 45-200mm F/4-5.6 Lens, Rokinon 14mm F/2.8 Lens, Sennheiser G3 wireless audio kit, shoulder rig, four 160-LED lights, $200 in batteries, camera slider, and a bunch more misc accesories.

I am a web developer for my day job, but I use my camera to make ends meet.  In addition to losing the camera, I lose a significant portion of my yearly income.

I know it's a lot to ask, and there are certainly more needly people than myself, but I really need my friends and family to help if they can.  Unfortunately, my insurance does not cover any of the items stolen.

If you are here in the Topeka area and I am successful in getting my equipment replaced, I would be happy to repay you with portraits or video work.

I would like to thank everyone who donated. I was able to order a camera on Friday, however I still need to at least replace my audio gear and get a couple of memory cards. So, please share with anyone else whom you think might be able to help.

Again, thank you so much to all who have donated or shared my campaign. Your generosity is amazing and overwhelming. I'm close to being able to get a new camera and lens so that I can get back to work.
