What our clients say about our workshops and photographers
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.”
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
I just want to say how very, very happy I am with both workshops that you organized for me. Both Mauro and Giulio could not have been nicer, more professional, or more of a pleasure with which to spend time. Both workshops far exceeded my expectations.
I’ve included one of several photos I believe will make, after further refinement, an incredible panorama of the ceiling at Sant’ Andrea della Valle. This is just one of hundreds of great shots that Mauro and Giulio helped me capture.
Rome Photography Workshops is just terrific, and I plan to sing your praises near and far on Facebook and other social media.”
