Please excuse this plea, but a photographer friend needs help. Christopher Oates is an amazing street photographer in New York. I feel so awkward shooting people, especially strangers out in the world, but when I do, I credit him for pushing me to step outside of my comfort zone and to shoot better.
His Sony camera took a crap after just nine months and Sony is refusing to honor their warranty. Rather than sink money in to fixing it, only to have it break again, he needs a new camera. Due to various circumstances in his personal life, he can’t just run out and buy what he needs. You can read a little about it on his GoFundMe page.
