Hi everyone. Last Sunday, I did a story about Dano Grayson, who had a house fire on Dec. 6 while he was out of town. Dano is a fixer – someone who arranges opportunities and locations – for wildlife photography and video crews. He's also a photographer himself with a whole lot of equipment. As you can imagine, it was very expensive equipment – one melted lens ran about $2,500.
While Dano lost pretty much everything, including the roof over his head, he spent the last week most worried about his cat, Meow, who's been missing since the fire. He told me he left a window partially open and hoped Meow escaped into the desert.
I spent some time walking with Dano and talking about his time traveling the Amazon and other parts of the world. He started as a biologist and eventually found his calling as a wildlife photographer where he could share the beauty of nature without harming it. He's an interesting person, and I look forward to sharing more of his story in the future without focusing on the house fire.
