I came late to photography as a profession but early to it as a hobby – 39 and 8 respectively!
Following life-changing heart surgery, I realised that my previous profession was not the real me and I ditched a 20 year career and re-invented myself. Still struggling upwards with that – but love every minute.
I plan, organise and guide private tours for photographers visiting NZ and Australasia, enjoy doing Mr Fixer roles for film and photographic projects from overseas and also grow olives!

Stolen Nikon Gear - India

Not that I expect to ever see it again, but my Nikon D3 body, the 50mm f1.4 attached and Nikkor 17-35 f2.8 lens were stolen from my bag whilst traveling in 2nd Class AC on the overnight sleeper train from Jodhpur to Varanasi on the night of 7/8 October.

The bag (a worn Domke) was clipped closed and on the bed as I slept, with my feet resting on it. The contents had not been publicly displayed so the thief obviously knew what he was looking for and enough about cameras to know that he needed to steal a lens as well (he left the 70-200 2.8 that was also in the bag). Nothing else was removed apart from a litre bottle of drinking water that was on the bed end as well. It was done well enough that I did not stir and I am a fairly light sleeper.

Also in the camera were 2 San Disk Extreme 16Gb cards one of which had about 120 images that I had shot that day on it. My name is set as the Copyright info on the camera. The camera also has ( or had) black gaffer tape on the top plate. There was a Black Rapid strap attachment lug screwed into the tripod socket.

I was told that they had had articular problems on this train (after the event….!) for about the last month so anyone using it be on your guard!

In the highly unlikely event that anyone is offered it I can provide the serial number to prove ownership.

I spent a sweaty and fairly pointless 2 hours with the Government Railway Police and would be surprised if they ever turned it up.
