What our clients say about our workshops and photographers
We just got home, but I did want to say that we enjoyed Brian and his tour. He was excellent. Just what I was looking forward to. Thanks.”Sanford M.
Tour was great. Thanks to Giulio for a great look at your city.”Bob P.Workshop
Our photography workshop with Giulio on 01/07/17 was fantastic. We met at 6am in Trastevere, an area of Rome that we love. The streets had not yet been cleaned so Giulio suggest we take a walk to some other areas to find some nice shots. We later returned to Trastevere after exploring some areas of Rome we had never visited before. Giulio’s knowledge of Rome and photography is second to none, and we very much appreciated how much he wanted to share; he went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our experience. Thank you so much Giulio, our shots are great and we will treasure the memories.”
Thank you for your email. I very much enjoyed my tour yesterday. Giulio was there right on time and spoke very good English which made the tour very easy flowing. He was very friendly and eager to share his trade. His technical knowledge, assisting me with a variety of settings was very helpful. His overall photographic knowledge combined with his in depth knowledge of Rome’s best photo spots made it a very productive tour. I went to places and made photos that I never would have been able to make without him. I even learned some history along the way. I can’t wait to get back home and take a closer look at them.”
Night photography with Mauro was very special. I always wanted to photograph Fontana di Trevi at night. Mauro took his time to explain & show me how to take gorgeous night shots of the fountain . The photos were magnificent…. love them. Mauro took me to some amazing places in Rome to photograph and always showing me how to take the perfect shot. He is a talented photographer with a great personality. Looking forward to my next workshop with him. Thank you Mauro.”Julie C.
I was able to schedule this city night photography tour at the last minute after being cancelled by another tour. Claudia was very helpful in finding someone to take care of me in a short notice. Brian was my workshop leader. I was very fortunate that he was available that night. He was very knowledgeable, easy to work with and accommodating to my needs. Thank you Rome Photography Workshop for providing me with an outstanding experience during my visit to Rome.”
Thank you very much for arranging the photo tour with Giulio. He was great and really did an outstanding job of conducting us around Rome. I give your organization and Giulio a 5 star rating.”

I took Rome Photography Workshop tour when my family stopped by Rome for a Mediterranean cruise very recently. We stayed in Rome for 2 days prior to the cruise and I wanted to make sure that my family will see all the historic and scenic highlights of the Eternal City.
I booked the tour online ahead of time and Claudia was very prompt in responding to my queries. I had so many questions and she made sure she answered all of them to my satisfaction. Based on my need and schedule, she assigned Giulio to be our photography tour guide. The tour was private and there’s only me, my wife and a 15 year-old son. I was the main active (DSLR) photographer in the family and the 2 others were big iPhone photoshooters.
Giulio was very professional and very knowledgeable in photography. I consider myself a novice in photography and needed a lot of things to learn but Giulio never made me feel intimidated taking photos while on the tour. He taught me a lot of things especially in composition and proper exposure – those were my main goals. Not only that Giulio delivered but he exceeded my expectation. Giulio was native Roman so he knows the ins and outs of the town, the history behind those places we went to and best of all, he showed us where we could find good food! And the best part of it too were the photos of us that he took. Thanks Giulio!
Thank you Rome Photography Workshop for the excellent service. Highly recommended when you want to be able to bring home a lot of good memories in Rome.”

I usually do not write reviews but I am about to make an exception because my experience with the photography tours from Rome Photography Workshop were definitely unforgettable!I did 3 tours with them and my guides were exceptional and so accommodating.
Being a newbie with photography I was a bit nervous but both Mauro and Suzanne were so patient with me that I felt completely at ease with them. They personalised the tour for me so it didn’t even feel like those “commercial tours” and more like I was hanging with my friends who just happen to be experts at photography.
Anyone who is in Rome and wants to do a photography tour I would wholeheartedly recommend the Roman Photography Workshop!
This is the best thing I could have done.”
