Why do you do an alt process?

I hope some of you jump in with similar stories. (I did not find a thread like this in the archives)

I started reading about the process in 2004. I read "The New Platinum Print" and after trying the Ziatype for a while early in 2005, I took a class from Kerik Kouklis later that year.

The process that is my main interest is pt/pd.

I do an alt process because 1) I was tired of having to pay for someone to make my prints for me and 2) I have no darkroom.

However, I still have to pay if I want a b/w silver print made for me.
