Michael Ernest Sweet is a Canadian writer and former street photographer. Michael shot the streets of Montreal and New York City for over a decade between 2010 and 2021. Additionally, Michael wrote for several arts and photography publications such as Canada's Photo Life Magazine and The HuffPost during those same years.

As of 2021, Michael is no longer involved in street photography. He now spends his time growing cacti, collecting vintage photographs, and hiking at Bonk Creek, his private 195-acre woodland reserve in Nova Scotia, Canada.
