What our clients say about our workshops and photographers
I booked onto the Morning Light photography workshop with Mauro. Being a complete novice I had no idea what to expect, however from the easy and simple booking process right through to the workshop the whole thing was flawless.
Mauro not only has incredible knowledge in photography but also of the wonderful city of Rome. Being up early is certainly worth it, with no one around and expert advice from Mauro, I soon got to grips with my camera.
The experience and knowledge I have gained from the workshop has definitely given me the confidence and inspiration to pursue this hobby much more. If you’re visiting Rome I would highly recommend getting in touch with the Rome Photography Workshop team and getting out there. Thank you so much to Mauro and Claudia.”
Custom Morning Light
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.”
We really enjoyed the trip with Guillio last Thursday. Our stop prior to colosseum was particularly nice. We really enjoyed the trip, and guide was very good with lots of tips about camera settings, composition and he certainly took us to some great places to stop. We are pleased with our results, and would highly recommend him.”
Giulio was unbelievably super!! Such a nice person and a fantastic pro. Thank you again I had a wonderful evening and a super shoot.”
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.”
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.”
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.”
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.

We would like to thank You and Giulio for the great time at the workshop. Giulio has been very attentive, very responsive to our expectations and tendencies, and actually made every possible effort to turn this workshop to an unforgettable experience for the both of us and such a great way to celebrate Etti’s Birthday 🙂 “
