You don't need to be an emergency responder or a millionaire to make a difference after a disaster.

Sometimes all you need is a camera.

Brian Peterson is using his skills as a photographer to help tornado victims in Moore.

The Oklahoma native is going to the city this weekend to help people rebuild their memories with photos.

He also did the same thing after the earthquake and tsunami hit Japan and it was a huge success.

"I had a handful of instant cameras and we thought if we did instant film we could give the photos immediately to them," Peterson said. "We found out later that we learned from doing the project the instant photos made the people feel really special and secure.

This weekend and next weekend he'll take pictures and present tornado families with photo albums full of new memories.
