François is a experienced professional photographer that will not let you down. He has a good technical expertise and will make you see things out of the ordinary. Your composition and technical knowledge will certainly be expanded. I took both the Central Park and the night tours. I highly recommend both.

Central Park is an amazing place in the middle of Manhattan. The Citifari tour with photographer Jean Francois was wonderful. He was very informative and helpful. He brought us to the best spots for photos. He got me to get off auto to working with manual mode, which is very important. He emphasized importants of creativity and good lighting. Citifari... More

I did the tour with Jean-Francois and on top of seeing all these hidden and special places in Soho I learned how to use the manual mode of my camera. It was fantastic! Thanks to Jean-Francois who was very attentive and dedicated guide who wanted us to fully experience the joy of being in control of our cameras. I highly... More

We did the night tour with Jean Francois on the hottest night of the summer...still steaming at 8:00pm...but it was worth it. Jean Francois emphasized the creative aspect of photography, getting us to look at a given scene differently to avoid generic looking photos that most people tent to take. He would have us experiment with shutter speed, aperture, and... More

I took the Manhattan night time safari and was lucky enough to be in a group with only one other photographer. Our guide Jean Francois was knowedgable, friendly, approachable and most of all creative. His enthusiasm shined through and he knew where to go to get some really different shots that will be so important in remembering my trip. Throroughly... More

The night tour with Jean Francois on the 17th July was truly excellent. His natural ability to guide us around this great city and use both his local knowledge and skills as a professional photographer were perfectly pitched to the abilities of our small group. Thank you Jean Francois for making it feel like a stroll around parts of the... More

This is the second year in a row that I've been able to go to NYC and this year I went on 2 Citifari Tours. Jean Francois was our guide for both the SOHO and the Central Park tours. The tours this year were every bit as enjoyable as the tours last year. Jean Francois was a great guide/host and... More

We did the photo tour of Central Park with Gildo. He was very knowledgable and really helped with framing the photographs and getting the best pictures possible. He was patient and went at a great pace. Highly recommend this photo tour!
