What our clients say about our workshops and photographers
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.”
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.”
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.”
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.”
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.
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.”
A quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed last night’s tour with Giullio. His master of light taught me much, The settings were perfect. His vast knowledge of Rome insightful. Very. It was a truly memorable evening in Rome. All that I was hoping for and more. Much more.”
My photography workshop with Mauro was awesome. He was an excellent instructor in photography both technically and artistically. He really showed me how to use my camera. Not only how to capture beautiful scenes and buildings, but also how to do it with an artistic flair. Not only was he very knowledgeable and a great instructor but also so friendly that he made the experience a very enjoyable one. As a local he knew Rome very well & the best places to go (not as a tourist but as a photographer) and he gave me a complete run down of the history of every place we went to and even of the places we walked past even if we didn’t stop. I can’t wait to do my night photography workshop in July with Rome Photography Workshops! I would highly recommend Mauro in a photography workshop in Rome.”
