Hi everyone, thanks for taking the time to read, share or help. Last week my entire set of camera gear was stolen from me while catching a train home from a job in Belgium. It all happened in less than 30 seconds, but it has a huge impact on me ongoing in not being able to continue with my livelihood. I've spent the week looking at what options I have, unfortunately I have not been in a financial position to renew my insurance so the stolen gear was not covered. I’m turning to the wider community and people I'm connected to and asking for help. I believe in people coming together in situations of need and grace and thank anyone for their support and care.
As a photographer, the most important thing to being able to do my job is my gear. It’s what helps me make a living, create personal work, collaborate and meet people. Having the right equipment will enable me to continue to make a living with the types of jobs I am commissioned to do.
I’m hoping to get back into working mode by replacing the below:
Canon 5DSR Camera Body Canon 16-35mm IS USM Lens Canon 24-70mm II IS USM Lens Canon 70-300mm L Lens Canon 40mm Pancake Lens Sigma Art 50mm Lens Tamron 90mm Macro Lens Manfrotto 190cx Pro Tripod with 3way Pan/Tilt Head Godox AD600Pro Portable Flash Pelican 1615Air Wheeled Case + A range of accessories inc. filters, batteries and memory cards.
The cost of replacing the gear is 10,000 euro, I appreciate any contribution helping me get back in action as soon as possible.
I appreciate each and everyone’s support, help and care through this time. Thank you, thank you so much.
