    "I started out as an admirer of Brian's photography and writing. Now I'm a friend and partner, and I couldn't be more honored.

    Brian is a constant source of inspiration for photography and writing about photography. His blog was the reason I found the confidence to develop my own blog from a personal outlet towards being a resource for photographers. His generosity is boundless and his creativity is truly remarkable. I am still an admirer of Brian, and look forward to working together with him to build our mutual success."

    "I honestly don't think Brian needs a Testimonial. His name is very well known in both photography and photography blogging fields.

    He has his own way to bring freshness and innovation to every picture he takes or every post he writes.

    Thank you for all the inspiration"

    "I live too far from Brian to give him a Christmas present in person, so I figured this would be just as good, if not better...

    Since I discovered Brian's blog in the middle of 2007, I've found myself constantly inspired by the work he produces in terms of the photography and the detailed explanations. I've also been honoured in the form of constantly being featured in photodumps and even mentioned as someone to watch.

    But this isn't about me.

    Brian is, simply put, awesome. His constant input into my work has encouraged me on so many levels, and drives me to seek my personal best. I think this is perhaps one of his best qualities. He seeks out the best in others, then broadcasts this to the world - seeking publicity for them, rather than using it to draw attention to himself.

    Despite living miles away, I really feel as if I've made a friend and not just another contact via the net. I would encourage you to follow his stream, (characterised by bursts of intense colour amongst desaturated images, with success gained in all facets of photography that he attempts). Furthermore, seek a social engagement with him. It will be something that you won't regret - especially the photos which will engrain themselves in your mind as masterpieces."

    "Brian's fresh perspective to photography is something I admire and look forward to viewing each time I load his photostream. Equally if not more impressive is Brian's great writing and engaging conversations on his blog. When I think of photography blogs I think of EpicEdits. Keep up the great work Brian."

    Anoop Negi says:

    "Brian Auer writes that he is ..................” just another photography enthusiast.”

    And thereby reveals a modesty about his skill. A trait which is one of the finest qualities that a person can possess. I have seen his photostream and what strikes me foremost about his work is that his photos “speak”.

    There is an element of “story telling” in his photographs. He wants to convey the mood, the ambience, the setting and the action in one frame. If you ask me it is the single most difficult and ardous task for a photographer. Brian excels in this genre.

    Great work. Hope to see more from this artist."

    "When it comes to the online photography community, Brian is definitely a leader. He's an excellent writer and he never hesitates to share what he's learned about photography with anyone.

    He has an eye for composition and a sense of exploratory wonder that comes across plainly in his photos. And every time he posts one of his post-processing tutorials, I learn something new."
