What our clients say about our workshops and photographers
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 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.”
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 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.”
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.”

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.”
