    Major pain for Steve Parish

    It appears that some lowlife has stolen a sizeable amount of photographic gear from Steve Parish.

    Why on earth would someone who makes their LIVING from their gear, and who has gear worth that much, not have it insured?
    I know financially he's apparently a bit strapped at the moment, but leaving $200k in a car overnight is foolishness, and not insuring it the next silliest thing.
    I love his photos and would love even more to have a fraction of his skill, but that just seems like a very expensive mistake, and one that seemed so avoidable.

    I feel very sorry for him, but to leave that much equipment in a car parked in a street in Norwood is not sensible.
    And not insured.
    I hope the thieves have a very hard time getting rid of it and thus get caught.

    The probability is that they palmed it off very quickly for the price of a slab of beer and a bag of dope.

    Tomorrow, they just do another car and score a phone and a few $$ cash and swap for the same value to feed their habits.

    What a bummer for him.

    Great photographer but not very smart!! Ditto to all the comments above.....why the H would you leave that amount of gear in a car, especially in a city?? We might be the 'country bumpkins' compared to our Eastern City neighbours, but we still have our crime!

    umm
    I find some of this another lesson that good photographers don't necessarily make good business people.
    How can he not have a small fortune in the bank?

    That was a targetted theft more than likely carried out by a nearby resident or someone who knew what was in the car. There is another theory which I won't embelish upon but it is highly unlikely to be a random theft. And for someone who was affected by floods and insurance claims with his business, not to have extreme value equipment insured beggars belief. Of course we do not know all the circumstances and people under stress do not necessarily make sound decisions.
    Some of that equipment will be easily identified so anyone purchasing this gear had better keep it hidden from other photographers.
    A lesson here which is continually repeated: insure your equipment. note to self check with wife!!!!!

    It's a sick and twisted world we live in now days.. The laws are just not hard enough to deter these type of crims.
    When caught they will more than likely have a day in court then 100 hours of community work.
    It's the only thing I like about about Arab countries. You get caught stealing, you loose a hand.

    And I agree that he should have insurance, and taken the gear inside.

    Aw come on guys, we all make mistakes and some of you are being extremely unkind.

    I feel for the man and was moved by his show of emotion.

    And tell me, where are any of us, and the people and things we cherish, really safe?

    For Clarity:

    Steve Parish did not state he was uninsured. It seems that was a media comment to garner sympathy/support

    Steve made the following statement on his FB page 3 hours ago:

    "Just to clear a few things: I have never said it was uninsured and the $200k was an invention because I could not provide a number. OK yes I am a dick head for leaving the kit in the boot although have done so for 35 years because I have had stuff stolen from indoors right beside my bed. So there you go if a thief want's something you have then that's it! NIKON god bless them had a camera in my hands in 24 hours, thanks Nikon."
    "It is one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it is another thing to make a portrait of who they are" - Paul Caponigro
