What our clients say about our workshops and photographers
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.
Mauro is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about photography and his enthusiasm for Rome and photography is contagious! He was awfully patient and his instruction meticulous. I learned a lot of useful techniques during our workshop which I hope to build on in future. An added bonus was Mauro’s in-depth knowledge of Rome and its history. I can highly recommend the morning light photography workshop and will certainly attend another one when I’m in Rome again. “
Lorraine and I had a sensational time with Giulio the other day on your “Morning Light” tour. Giulio delivered everything we hoped for and more. He got us to the right places at the right times in order to take advantage of the best light. He brought us to the best known monuments and beautiful, off-the-beaten-track spots. Giulio was a great guide and coach. I’ve been taking photos for years but, with Giulio, found I still had plenty to learn. He was patient, accommodating and clearly loves what he does. His enthusiasm was contagious. He was also a fascinating person to spend the morning with.
Thank you, too, for your responsiveness and willingness to answer all our questions quickly and thoroughly.”
I used one of your guides in Rome by the name of Giulio. He was a fantastic photographer and a very nice guy. I am sold on the quality of your tours and the results that they produce.”

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 just got home from our time in Rome and wanted to leave a review of the morning light photography workshop we did. It was great! What I got out of four hours with Brian was well worth the price of the workshop. I was nervous going in to it that I wouldn’t have enough experience with my camera, that I wouldn’t get my money’s worth and that the workshop would be led by a person who wasn’t very skilled. None of those concerns were reality! It was wonderful to have a native English speaker in this scenario because I had little (read: no) experience with really using my manual settings. Brian was more than qualified – a film and photography professor in Rome! Brian was a solid teacher, he was patient and I learned so much. I think a person with much more experience than I had coming in to it would have learned a lot too….because his experience in the photography and film field was so deep. He was really easy to get along with and additionally, he got a bachelors in architecture history so his commentary on what I was photographing was insightful. The workshop ended up being way more than I had hoped for. I learned real skills that I can build on, took some beautiful pictures and had four hours of one on one direction in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.”
Brian was a great guide to the Rome sites for evening and night photography. He took us to some of the most beautiful places for photography in Rome, and helped my wife and I get some great photos. He also was a great source of historical knowledge. We would highly recommend Brian, and Rome Photography Workshop, for a photo tour of Rome.”
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 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.”
