Alain is a real professional in every sense. You can tell by reading his books that he has thought about every facet of photography, not just the typical mechanical aspect. He goes into areas that you will not find in other books. If you want a complete A-Z education, this is the ticket. Alain, is not afraid to cover all aspects of his photography as well as his business down to the smallest details. I highly recommend them all.
I very much agree with this. Basic techniques always remain and Alain is a master of explaining all that in detail.
