I'm an amateur photographer living in Freiburg city, Germany, I'm working when possible as a freelance photographer for living.
since 2 weeks ago I had a dramatic accident . I lost my Camera and gear bag when was doing a landscape photography on top of one of the Black Forest's mountains. while crossing a narrow cliff my leg slept and was a about to fall, I managed to hang on but my gear bag flept out of my shoulder and dived all the way down the mountoun.
My bag was including:
My Canon 7D
Zoom lens EF15 -135 and EF 24 -70 f2.8,
Speed lite 600EX flash gun
My mini Rollei Tripod and Full set of filters all gone!!!.
It Took me 15 minutes running the way down the mountain, I kept searching for hours but the bag just disappeared within the huge Black Forest trees. two weeks passed by now and no single sign that someone found or willing to return my bag and my gear.
I was helping in a photography book which was a great chance to help me financially, now I can't deliver the material not only on time but at all! I don't have saving all was invested in my gear which was in that bag!!
Support me going back to my photography, any thing you can afford will help, my loss is more than 2,500 Euros even if I won't reach the fund Goal amount, any reached amount will be a big help to reduce the disaster and help me to replace my gear even if it take a longer term to replace it all, still will be much better than the current situation.
