I enjoyed shooting photos around the Vatican with Marco. It was like having a mini-master class in photography. I had taken a photography class a while ago and Marco reviewed the basics of photography with me. We worked on composition, the rule of thirds, best way to hold the camera, and using the manual settings on the camera. We talked about creating photos, getting the photo how you want it when you shoot it rather than relying the computer for post shooting editing. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to learn more about photography and get some tips on taking better photos.

Marco was great. He quickly assessed my skill level and then customized the tour to my interests. He is a highly professional and talented photographer. I learned a lot that I've already been able to use.. my photographs have improved because of his help. And it was a lot of fun. He's a natural teacher.

Fantastic, Marco introduced me to a new way of looking at photography and reinforced all the concepts and techniques of photography, great tour around the old city of Rome, loved the coffee and pastries.

Marco was a great guide and good company. He shared many ways for me to better my technique and take photographs with greater impact. He is very knowledgeable about the area, sharing cheerful greetings to folks nearly everywhere we went. This adventure was one of my favorite activities in Rome and I would recommend it.

Excellent experience and highly recommend as a way to improve your photos and get a good guide knowledgeable about the city and history. Saw a lot of out-of-the-way places we would otherwise have missed and got some terrific photos and photog tips as well.

Steve was excellent. We book these tours to get an artists perspective on the city. We expect the photographer to know unique locations to get great shots that capture the essence of the city, to provide guidance on composition, use of light and perspective and finally give suggestions on getting the best photographs from our camera's. Steve did all that in a charming and congenial way.

I enjoyed the tour a great deal. Steve Bisgrove was my guide. He started by finding out my level of knowledge and then teaching me things that were just beyond where I was. I had never had a photography class and so some of the things he taught me were really basic, which is exactly what I needed. Steave taught me a bit about composition, as much as I could absorb really. He taught me about the primary settings on my camera and how they impacted the picture. He told me about additional information I needed to learn, and suggested sites to get that information when I have time. I found the instruction very helpful. The walk included discussion of topic selection and hints about where to look to find interesting subjects to photograph, in any city really, since there is no shortage in Rome. I believe that anyone would find 4 hours with Steve useful and informative, and they will take better and more interesting pictures at the end. I would say that the percentage of my photos that look good in a slide show went from about 20 to more like 80 as a result of the instruction. THANKS STEVE. I could have imporved the experiance by letting him know what camera I use before the trip.

I took a walking tour of ancient Rome on Monday, June 14th with Steve and I have to say it was fantastic. I was expecting a group of 6 but to my surprise it was a one on one tour. Steve’s knowledge of Rome was excellent and it was terrific seeing Rome from his point of view. He knew all the best locations for incredible photographs. Best of all, Steve was an excellent teacher. This tour was much better than I had anticipated.
