    Ray's prints are lovely - I have a few. Although Murray's trip isn't until next fall, perhaps he can time it to coincide with one of Ray's workshops or show-and-tell sessions, or otherwise get in touch with Ray to arrange some sort of get-together.

    Re: Platinum galleries/collectors?

    We may be driving the whole way, or flying to California and renting a car...not sure just yet.

    Too bad about some places not showing prints in their collections to regular schmucks like me. I remember being in a gallery in Carmel about 30 years ago, being taken into the back when they recognized I was absorbing as much as I could from the prints on the walls, and having my whole world rocked by a Wynn Bullock print of dark driftwood and surf.

    Thanks again for the tips & leads...hope to get rocked again!

    And fwiw, I'm a great fan of Ray's work, he's modest (as far as I can tell) and let's his work speak for itself. His print's afaik represent great value

    I think this would be the direction I would go. For the most part I have found LF photographers to be nice people who like to help and talk about what they do. Only found one to be a monstrous sized arrogant donkey.

    If you are in Northern CA amongst the redwoods, drop by the house, I'll show you a stack of my platinum prints -- and some carbons if you wish, also.

    My favorite galleries in California are located in Carmel by the Sea. The only two names I remember are the Weston Gallery and Photography West. I'm pretty sure both of these either display Pt/Pd prints or have some on hand. Also, Point Lobos is nearby if you want to shoot.

    If you're in the Bay Area come over for coffee and I'll show you some I've done, including a few gum overs. I'm in San Rafael.

    I live in Vancouver Washington and can show you carbon prints at my home if you wish. Other than that LightBox Photographic gallery in Astoria generally has images on display from Platinum printers. I have some Platinum/Palladium images in my collection come to think of it.
