Dear Contributor, On Friday…
Dear Contributor,
On Friday February 26th, thieves made off with my car which was full with my entire rig. The car had Lo-Jac and was recovered within a few hours, the equipment two Hasselblads that Ive had since the early nineties, two Nikon DSLRs with a full compliment of prime lenses and a Canon Mark 3 as well as a large haul of accessories and a Kino Flo light (total approx. value 25$k) has basically devastated my ability to work. As most of you know if I work commercially i'll be able to rent gear but also as most of you know most of what I do is not with any commercial purpose.

You have really helped me with your contribution. The money is important of course but even to jump into the breach like you have for a friend, colleague, mentor or just someone you have known through their work is inspiring and helps me a lot in this difficult moment. I was against doing this in the beginning, I felt there was still a chance for the equipment to be returned, that this kind of thing was for folks that were in life or death situations, that Im realistically not very good at asking for help, but now I understand the wisdom of small campaign.
Thanks to Jeff Chang, Dream Hampton and my wife Thalma for helping me see the reason.
It is the perfect moment to show your love or admiration for someone when they are at their lowest.
Last week is the lowest Ive been in a while.
Guilt, anger, emptiness all visited me.
The wonderful gesture you have done helps me to let these feelings go and to move on.
In the end it is the work that is important not the equipment.
Thank you for helping keep that going.
With love b
