Check out PhotoCentral in Hayward. It's an excellent resource with classes, workshop, beautiful rental darkrooms and a gallery. If you live in the Bay Area and love film photography you need to know about PhotoCentral.

In Berkeley visit Photolab and the Photolab Gallery. The gallery exhibits only photography, mostly but not exclusively analog. New exhibit every 6 weeks provides great support and promotion for local artists. Photolab is a fully equiped analog black and white commercial photo lab (besides the usual digital), which indicates a healthy market for traditional photo processes.

There is a huge contingent of Lomo, Holga, Diana camera fans in the Bay Area. I recently participated in a Lomo workshop at Propville in Marin.

I can keep going with more ideas and options, but that's enough for you to get started!
