That is a visit that is more than well worth the trip.

I agree. My local store in Boston (Hunts) had a photo safari (to try out E-510's) and had him as the featured speaker. His photos and his life story are fascinating.

During the show, he shows a very personal photo, which was a photo taken of a flower (rose I think) after he had suffered from depression, and had stopped taking pictures. That picture drew him back to the art of photography. However during his talk, one of the DSLR users with a chip on his shoulder started critiquing the photo from technical points (white balance, etc.), and missed completely that the picture was important to John from a personal point of view, and not purely technical. If you are in the area and can go, by all means go.

I had the pleasure of meeting John about two years ago in Walnut Creek, CA, where a local photo shop had setup a small Olympus exhibition - a very nice gentleman and one fine photographer. If you can get there, very much worth the effort.
