Help Ben Replace His Photo Equipment

Recently, my house was broken into and, among other things, all of my camera equipment was stolen. If you're reading this, hopefully you've had the opportunity to enjoy some of my photographs. Photography has become an enormous passion of mine, and one of my favorite aspects of this is sharing my photographs and stories with others. I would like to continue to share my art and adventures; however, without a little help, I'm not sure if that's possible, at least not in the short to medium term. If you have ever enjoyed one or more of my photographs, and/or hope to enjoy them in the future, please consider helping me get back on my photographic "feet."

I am looking for donations to assist me in purchasing replacement equipment; anything you can give, whether money or just good thoughts, would be much appreciated. Of course in return for your generosity and kindness, I will provide you a unique, beautiful photographic gift that you can enjoy and share for years to come (if you donate at Level 3 or above, I will contact you by email to see if there is a specific photo, subject matter, season, etc. you would like, and you can check out my work on my Facebook page, too). Also, my fundraising goal is a bit more than the cost of the equipment, but that's because a substantial portion of what you donate will go towards me producing your photographic gift.

Thanks for considering my situation, and I truly appreciate any help you can provide. And although I will work to print and send your gift as soon as possible, be aware it could take a month or more depending on the type of gift. Please use the contact button if you have questions, and if you are interested in a photographic gift that is not listed, please send me a message.
