Daufenbach Camera sends a message to the community


Lawrence Daufenbach announces they are open for business.

“Brainstorming and finding creative solutions to produce content in a pandemic is no simple task. However, for some, the show must go on. Production companies, agencies, and clients still have stories to tell and lives to feed. In times of sorrow, creative content can often bring joy, solace, and hope. The narrative of storytelling remains at the heartbeat of culture and while culture can be slowed, it cannot be eliminated.

That is why we are committed to continuing to provide the tools necessary for telling your stories. Our shop will be a clean and safe workspace for socially distant crew members prepping camera equipment. The nature of our camera prep bays has distance built-in, leaving your freelance hires a marked out space to safely work in our shop. While crew availability may be short-staffed during these times, we also are offering the option of hiring our in-house camera prep technicians as a way to build your camera package for the DP and Directors that are hired as one-person crews. We are also offering free delivery to all rentals in the Chicagoland area. 

If you own a camera or lens, this is also a great time for you to get your equipment serviced and tuned-up for summer and fall. We will be offering 50% off our in-house servicing. Please reach out for a list of qualified products.”
