Taiga's Stolen Photography

Hello! This is Taiga Kunii.

On October 2016, I began my career as a photographer/videographer.

I studied photography through youtube and with the help of friends I was able to develop my skills.

As I attended music school, I realized a desperate need in every musicians for a visual content. And I strongly believe both photography and videography can support their music career. 

So, I decided to collect gears for both photography and videography over the year.

Here’re my works.

I was working at a café from 11pm-1:30am on Tuesday, October 3rd.

My car was parked at a validated parking in front of the café.

I had almost everything in my car.
Because, I just moved in to Los Angeles 2 weeks ago.

Honestly, I had no place to stay yet.

I was sleeping in my car for days.

Someone broke two glasses of my car window and stole everything. Thankfully, I had my passport and a laptop with me while I was working at a cafe.

Here’s the list of things someone stole.
Canon EOS Mark 3 – $1,950
Panasonic Lumix GH5 - $2,600
Extra chargers and batteries- $200
Sigma 50mm F1.4 lens - $700
Canon EF 85mm F1.2 lens – $2,000
Canon Speedlite 600EX Ⅱ-RT - $480
3 Seagate 2TB External Hard drive - $210
2 SanDisk Extreme Pro 256 GB - $280
2 SanDisk Extreme Pro 128 GB - $150
2 SanDisk Extreme Pro 64 GB – $170
Cases for 3 Hard drives, SD card, Gears – $380

-       A suitcase with all of my clothes
-       Vocal recording mic and interface
-       All of the books
-       Repair two broken mirrors
-       JLB speaker

TOTAL $10,000

These items were my investment over the year as a preparation to be able to work here in Los Angeles.

This week, I have canceled 3 photography/videography works  worth $800.

I am not able to start working again until I have my equipments.

It really hurts me asking you all a favor.
But here I am asking for your help.

In return, I will contact you directly to discuss for how I can help you with my photography / videography.

I'll do whatever I can to give back to you.

Any amount you can afford will be a big help for me.

Thanks a bunch!
