Dam!!!!! you have done it again. Just as I feel comfortable in work along comes another set of ideas of goals or thoughts which inspire me to reexamine what I am trying to create. Have just started book but enjoy the (dry) humor such as "I buy the best cards, lenses and equipment I can find". Hope to work my way through in the next week or two.
Your book and the excellent print arrived yesterday. I was amazed by the
rich contents of the book and I am sure that it will be my invaluable
guide for many years to come. Just want to say a big thank you for sharing your expert experience with us.

Your book has arrived today and it's in perfect condition. I feel bad for paying so little for the book - you should charge at least 10x more! I took a quick glimpse and I'm amazed with all the information that you put up together and all the things that you reveal that I'm sure most photographers wouldn't dare to!
I really enjoy your new book, “Photographic Composition, Creativity and Personal Style.” I have probably read approximately 30 or so books on the subject of Landscape Photography (I enjoy reading). Your “Mastering Landscape Photography” is the most insightful for me. The discussion of your journey as an artist captured my imagination and helped point me in a direction that was both liberating as well as daunting…development of a personal style.
That is why your second book resonated with me. The subject of a personal style may be the most important topic that isn’t covered, and if covered only indirectly, in photography books that I have read so far (and I have read a bunch). You really handle it well. The challenge of defining abstract concepts in a practical and rational manner must have been as introspective as it was probably incredibly time consuming. I am most appreciative.
Thank you for writing the book "Mastering Photographic Composition,
Creativity and Personal Style". For me it is a must read, no other book goes into such detail about how to go from idea to finished print.
What struck me most in the book is that you explain your workflow in a very detailed way. From the start, the idea (creating art) to the finished product (the print).
It has caused me to look at the scene in a complete different way as I was used to. You're an equal excellent photographer, master printer and a writer.

I got my copy of your second book last week. I really like the chapter about how to develop your own style and inner self as a photographer. I have both of your books. They are fantastic and full of great ideas.
