Thanks for the kind words.
Back in 2015 I got to live out one of my worst nightmares. I had a day where the personification of my anxiety sprouted legs and ambled right into the middle of a Coast Guard Change of Watch (COW) Ceremony that I was photographing.
Mr. Anxiety-Incarnate snuck into a Banquet Hall, and like a plague, snuck right back out and took something precious with him. Never to be seen again was $15,000 worth of Canon cameras and lenses that was stored in my gear bag.
That’s right, I lived out the photographer’s terrifying dream equivalent to showing up to a high school class naked.
It wasn’t all bad news. My insurance company eventually paid me for most (75%) of my stolen gear and I learned a whole lot about what I was doing wrong and what I was doing right when it came to keeping my gear safe and secure while shooting an event or parked on location.
