Hello my friends.

Once again I wanted to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Getting back on track is slow going but with this support it will be a much easier transition. This whole experience has been a whirlwind and I am so thankful for all of you. I look forward to paying it forward someday. I want to be like you and offer a helping hand. We are all in it together and I know this more now than ever. Happy New Year, I am also here for you!

Hello,

Just wanted to wish everyone a happy holiday. Your outreach, support and kindness have given me one of the most moving experiences I have ever felt. Thanks for inspiring me and showing me what we all can achieve. When we help each other and put our minds together we can do anything. This experience has taught me so much. I look at the act of giving in a new way. The time will come when I have the opportunity to give to others as you all have been giving to me. Cheers to a new beginning. I hope to see you along the way. Much love.

Hello,
I am awestruck, inspired, moved by the generosity of everyone. This is the most amazing thing I have experienced. I hope to connect with all of you soon. I am still up on the mountain, walking the roads and looking through ashes. Tears come and go, but I feel that there will be something really good to come from this. I am looking forward to getting back on my feet and working hard. Thanks to everyone, this is such a beautiful thing. From Big Sur, a huge thank you.

All the best,

Kodiak Greenwood

If you know Kodiak Greenwood then you know how much he hates the idea of asking for help but that, unfortunately, is precisely what he needs right now. One of the finest young photographers in the game, Greenwood was amongst the hardest hit by the Pfeiffer Fire which ravaged his beloved hometown of Big Sur on December 16th, 2013. Pictured above in the smoldering aftermath of the devastation, Kodi lost virtually everything he owned in the inferno.

Stuck out of state when the fateful flames came, Greenwood returned home to little more than scorched earth and a long road to recovery. The fire destroyed all of his professional photographic equipment (estimated to be at least $50,000), much of his archives, his clothing, his travel gear, scores of family heirlooms, and so much more. The list of lost is unfathomable.

A Big Sur native who has helped fight several fires for other people over the years, most notably that heroic time on Apple Pie Ridge in 2008, found himself and his world on the wrong side of the fire wall this time around.

Please donate what you can to help this extraordinary artist get back on his feet: www.kodiakgreenwood.com

Thank you!

BTW If you need a camera for the time being, I have a Fujifilm Finepix HS50EXR that takes pretty good digital pics. I can loan it to you if you wish.
