Photographer looses everything

Recently a photographer friend of mine Tony Middleton had his home broken into. Needless to say all his camera and computer gear worth several $1000’s of dollars was stolen. What made this so devastating was the thieves also stolen all his external hard drives with 10 years worth of images stolen.

To say he is gutted is an understatement and totally understandable, we all would be I am sure.

To try and help Tony out with some replace costs and get him back on his feet again I would like to auction off a print of mine 30×30 inches with all the proceeds going towards Tony’s rebuilding effort.

The image in I would like to offer for auction recently won a Silver award at this years International Aperture Awards Open Section Landscapes.

I would like to start the bidding at $100 and will close the bid in 2 weeks time from today.

If you feel you can help by placing a bid on the image or recommending my page throughout your friends so they maybe interested we appreciate the help we can get …

We started this on my Facebook Page but I am moving it here so there is no TOC conflicts at the FB page …

Current bid is $200 by Michael Pritchard

We also had a donation of $500 by Pete Dobre … Thank you Pete …

    Thank you so much for your initiative and support Neal – I’m speechless mate ! Also thanks to Michael for bidding on this awesome image of Neal’s.
    It’s been a crap month or so to say the least for me (having a number of infections going rampant over the last couple of weeks – lungs, teeth and ear ! Heaps of fun ! )
    But thank you so much to everyone in this awesome blog community’s support, generosity and assistance, I have just been able to get hold of some 2nd hand canon gear and and a 2nd hand 5DII.
    So once i get better – which will hopefully be real soon I hope to get back out there doing what I, and all of us love – experiencing nature’s beauty and photographing it !

    best wishes and thanks,
    Tone 🙂
