San Francisco photographer George Lester has launched a Gofundme fundraising campaign so he can replace camera equipment recently stolen from his home.

Lester, who’s gay, is known for photographing LGBT events and is one of the official photographers for this year’s AIDS/LifeCycle, the annual bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles that raises money for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. He also takes photos for the Bay Area Reporter.

“It is not easy to ask for assistance, but my passion is photography and capturing the memories of my community,” Lester says on his online crowdfunding page, which he launched March 29.

He explains, “Recently, my house was broken into and all of my camera equipment was stolen.” He’s looking to replace his camera, flash, and lenses.

As of this afternoon (Thursday, March 31), Lester had raised $5,675 of his $7,900 goal.

On his site, he tells supporters, “As a thank you for your donation, I would like to offer you a session in my portrait studio. (Once I get my new camera equipment).”
