"Briot’s book is very useful for the ways in which it describes and then shows the results of creative use of light and finer techniques of custom tonal curves and color management."
-- Gordon Cook, Cook's Collaborative Edge

"Briot is an established landscape photographer whose personal approach to the medium is engaging and explorational...He forces you to open yourself up to new possibilities and concepts—unafraid to bring art into the equation in close collaboration with the technology. The author’s images are awesome, and they provide a perfect visual launchpad designed to ignite the reader’s imagination. "
-- Derek Pell, Zoom Street Magazine

"For those of you budding 'artists with cameras': Get your copy ASAP, read and enjoy. And learn. Briot's style, while serious, is anecdotal as well. His love of his world and appreciation of art are apparent in every page. This book will serve you to be a better photographer after you have read it. Even if you're a professional photographer there are many different perspectives to be appreciated and lessons to glean. And if you are a snap-shooter and wondering how great images, many included in this book, are created, this could be the start of something big, and beautiful."
-- Artie Alinikoff, MyMac Magazine

"You will not only end up becoming a better photographer, but a better artist with your camera. "
-- Tim Boxer, 15 Minutes Magazine

"I think that this is a very important book and one that you must own if you plan on creating fine art photography. If you have your basic skills down and want to enhance them with more vision, creativity, and inspiration, then I very highly recommend Mastering Photographic Composition, Creativity, and Personal Style."
-- T. Michael Testi, Blogcritics.org

"Overall, if you want some guidance on developing your photographic creativity, this book is a good starting point. Where it takes you is entirely up to the student. "
-- Maxey von Senden, eJournal of the Tucson Computer Society

"This book provides an exceptional education for those who strive to develop an expertise in capturing all that the camera sees."
