About two weeks ago, his car was broken into in broad daylight in Oakland after a charity event he took photos for. In addition to smashing the window, the thieves stole 2 bags out of his car, his backpack containing all his photography equipment (2 cameras and 2 lenses), his computer, backup hard drive, and the SD card containing all the photos from the event he had just shot. The second bag was a camera bag containing 2 rented camera lenses which he now has to pay for out of pocket. As you can guess, all of the equipment replacement costs quickly added up, and most significantly the rented lenses, due to the store's rental policy.
He isn't usually someone to ask for help but is always willing to help others. So as a small way to try and help him recover some of the lost equipment, we put together this fundraiser. While it doesn't bring back his stuff back, hopefully, we can all pitch in and make a dent in the financial recovery. Every amount counts!!!
Thanks in advance!
