    Peter, you CRUSHED the story!!! You truly are a MASTER storyteller and this video is a prime example of that.

    I've realized over the past few years that "giving the gift of photography" is something that actually makes me feel not only better but that I'm accomplishing something.

    Whether it's giving the gift of a MASSIVE print, a photo book, smaller prints or sending someone the files…seeing the smiles on people's faces when they see their images is priceless.

    I hope people hear your message loud and clear. Give the gift the gift of photography any way you can. So many people go through life only seeing snapshots of themselves. But when you can capture a "photograph" and give it to someone, it's something they will cherish for a long long time.

    Thank you for including me in your fantastic story.

    Just now watching this. Love the challenge. Actually gifting my wife for our anniversary next month a photo book (zine if you will) of film shots I've taken throughout the years so far. Always a good idea to gift photography.

    I know I'm a couple months late with this comment. I just want to say thank you Peter, I don't know how I ended up starting to watch your videos. Im glad that I did though. I can honestly say you inspired me to start my journey into being a photographer. You helped me decide that I want to do this as a career. I actually think it was this video that touched me the most. So I just wanted to say thank you from the very bottom of my heart. Keep up the great work and keep inspiring others.

    I use to take a bunch of pictures of different cars at car shows back in the late 90’s and early 2000’s about a year ago I found probably 10 of the owners of the cars that I shot and was able to mail then those photos of their old cars and we would talk a lot about how much fun those car shows were and those goos times. I understand why you love photography so much.

    Hey Peter, What a lovely video of you and your story. I will print a few photos off today and mail them it's a great idea while everyone is at home, the postie will be getting a workout.
    I've jumped on here today to thank you for all your videos I've watched so many since I started my photography journey. Yesterday I finally uploaded my first YouTube video at 50 and I wouldn't have done it without watching you and Matti for the last year. I now have to create an intro to my videos, do you have a video on that?
    Thanks so much. Dian
    P.S. When are you coming to Australia?

    Digital Photos are all well and good but you get these photos which are printed in whatever format that just make you sit back and go wow! That's what was done for you in this video. I accept your gifting challenge. All the best.

    I didn't know I could cry from a YouTube video until now. Photos hold so many happy memories and hold so many extraordinary moments. Thank you for this story! I almost felt as though I was there with you.

    I took up your challenge, Pete! I made a video capturing the whole process. I think you're going to like it!

    I can definitely testify to this – last year I was able to travel and stay at some of my family's home and they were so welcoming but they literally asked for nothing in return – I thought and thought and I decided that the only thing that I could give them that would truly reflect how grateful I felt, was a framed photo of their Family and surely enough they loved it! And of course it was so amazing to present them with what felt like a memory frozen in time, that would always reflect my gratitude for their kindness – Truly amazing! I will do it again surely!
