Nude Photo Art!

$3,189 of $5,500 goal

Raised by 64 people in 35 months
My name is Rick Legal, and I live in Vancouver Canada and work as an art, street, and portrait photographer.

On January 20th, 2016, while working in English Bay, I had my camera bag stolen with all of my gear in it.
I lost absolutely everything. About $6000 worth of gear, including a camera, 4 lenses, a flash, etc.
It took me years to accumulate everything and as a starving artist I have no way to get back to where I was.
I'm asking for any help you can give!
Even a $2 donation would make my day.
FYI for those of you who don't have a credit card (like me) and still want to donate, I can also accept etransfer to my email

Those who know me would know I hate to ask for help, or for charity of any kind, so I have been working on finding a way to pay back my donors.

For all donations of $30 or more I am sending out postcards of my original works.
Every $10 above that gets another card, there will be 4 choices in all.
For every donation of $150 I will be sending an original 8x12 of your choosing. Every $50 above that gets another print.
Now I also wanted to be able to provide photoshoots for donors as well, but this only really applies to people in Vancouver, or those who may visit here. And it has to be noted that I can only provide shoots in the event I reach my goal and can attain my camera gear again!

- Quick shoot - half hour max, one original photo.
$100 - Hour long shoot, 3-5 photos.
$150 - Full shoot,  2.5 hours reg. cost $250. 10 photos
$250- 2 shoots, reg. cost $500. 20 photos.

1- 5x7 postcard in the mail - Rick Legal original
Additional $10- another postcard, 4 total options.

- Original 8x12 print of your choosing Fine Art Archival paper. Reg. price $200
Additional $50 another print of your choosing.

Halfway to my goal!
I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to contact me offering support and loaner equipment, shared these posts, donated equipment and money to this fund! It has truly been amazing and I'm glad for every one of you!
Getting your gear stolen is such an unbelievable gut-punch. It's like all of a sudden you have no meaning. But having the support of friends, and people I don't even know has put me into a pretty incredible headspace. I feel truly and immensely lucky.
Thank you all.
