I lived in the bay area for a number of years. I’ve been back in San Diego for a couple of years now. I met Oliver Klink through his workshops when I lived in the bay area. I attended his grebe workshop in Oregon and a hummingbird shoot in the Santa Cruz mountains and the San Francisco Carnaval 2013 workshop.

Oliver through Incredible Travel Photos offered a class in B&W digital printing in January of this year. It was timely as I had been thinking about buying a new large format printer. In addition to just getting back into printing again, Oliver uses a unique ink set for his images. I was interested in seeing the process and some prints in person. I was considering using them but the drawback is you have to dedicate a printer to these inks.

I spent a couple of extra days in the area. I lived for a while in San Jose just a couple of miles from the Winchester Mystery House and never visited. On this trip I finally got there.
