For all those interested in street photography (or any photography for that matter), there are always questions - weather you're just starting out or a seasoned veteran. Being able to uncover the experiences and learning's of other photographers is an important part of your evolution. And enjoyment.

Michael Sweet has produced a book that reflects his experiences and learning's. It is honest, informative, enthusing, and interesting. He provides real advice based on real work. More than just advice, he offers his own thoughts on key points that are pertinent to the technology crazed world of today, as well as some excellent insights into the people and photographers that have inspired him.

Many people just read from the greats and try to imitate them. As Michael say's "being different is hard; one can see that Cohen has influenced me, but, at the same time, one can also instantly see that my work is my own". And if you take the time to look at his sharp and superb work, you will find this to be true....

As an ex professional photographer, who `only shots for himself' now, I found Michaels book a breath of fresh air from the plethora of samey, copy-cat, "hi street togs" Facebook based blog's and literature, so abundant these days.

If you have not uncovered this man's work yet, I encourage you to do so. I also encourage you to buy this book - because, if you are genuinely interested in street photography and want to learn a few lessons that will help you achieve your aims (be it fame and recognition or just better photographs and that feeling of inner satisfaction), then you should have this on your book shelf and read it until the pages fall apart.

This could have been a five star score. The book demonstrates the pitfall of self publishing. If only a friend had been invited to edit the thing, or at least proof-read it, it could have been elevated from the annoying category.

The photographic content is much as expected but the writing ... I can only assume that Canadian education is not up to UK standards where English and punctuation are concerned.

Dodgy paragraph spacing, several typo errors and so much repetition of 'I', 'me' and 'will cover this later' is enough to make a less patient man give up.

Before your next foray into self publishing, please delete scatological slang from your vocabulary and learn the basic publishing tenets concerning 'widows and orphans' regarding layout.

A potentially useful book for beginners, totally devalued by these careless errors.

No. I really cannot be bothered to return it. But I am tempted. It would not even be good value as a free e-book. I really prefer to give no review at all than a negative one, but other potential buyers need to know this stuff to avoid disappointment.

the rule in any published work is when it's out in the world, the author has no control over readers reviews; here is a classic case of someone saying how bad the 'book' is and the author accusing the reader of being a Troll! Well, I'm sad to say that the 'book' is a thin, poor quality 'magazine'. It should not be out in the world- the info on the various subjects is limited, and the few images terribly poor in quality - why publish a book on photography when the print quality is third grade?

Awful Mr Sweet, but hey, keep up the enthusiasm.

you can check out my photographs - no editing in photoshop - long exposure, experimental, narrative street photography:

I ordered this book from Super Book Deal and was very disappointed. They charged me £7.32 for a self published, poorly produced, A4 booklet of few pages that hadn't been properly proof read. I wrote to the supplier twice to lodge a complaint but that ignored my e-mails. That's it folks!
