I can't say enough about how wonderful the central park photo tour was! I loved the challenge to shoot in manual mode. Jean Francois was kind, patient and knowledgeable. He checked everyone's shots to make sure we got the photo we wanted. He answered questions and encouraged us to look at things from all angles and take the shots we... More

I am most grateful to Jean-Francois and Citifari for an amazing afternoon tour of NYC landmarks. While I am a freelance photojournalist, my particular niche is not on-the-street venues. I, as the others in our group, were most impressed with Francois' candor, attention to so-many specifics, assistance with appropriate camera settings and composition to particular landmarks and Manhattan curiosities. The... More

The tour was great and the guide gave us a lot of advice for taking good picture of the city. He also gave us some historical stories about some buildings.

Got some amazing photos of the city at night. Our guide was Francois and he was fantastic. Worth every penny. There is no way I would have gotten the shots that I did at the angles that I did without guidance from Francois. DO IT!

Jean Francois made the evening tour most enjoyable.His wealth of knowledge along with his creativeness gave me a different and interesting perspective to shooting photos.My group consisted of three people from France along with Francois,which gave an even broader cultural experience for this man from the corn fields of Kentucky ! Loved it ! Merci '

Overall a good experience, could be less history and more technique. But a pleasant morning, I would recommend it.

There was only one other photographer on this tour plus my wife who tagged along so it was almost a private tour. Jean-Francois is a very knowledgeable person who is very passionate about photography and showed me some very good tips in framing different shots and use of natural lighting in outdoors and indoor photography. I feel more confident in... More

I was able to to get past some learning roadblocks when it comes to my photography having done this short course -- and was able to see how to see the landscape in a new way..... plus Francois is not uptight and OCD about photography, which helps my enjoyment immensely.......

We took the night tour with Jean-François. Besides the technical aspects of night shooting, he gave us very interesting advices to really open eyes, observe light and be able to "create" a photograph instead of "taking" a picture. The only disagreement was on our side, our camera being too much automatized, it was impossible to zoom in during long exposure... More

The night photo safari was great fun and really useful. Jean Francois showed the group some great techniques for night photography and shared his knowledge and skill of photography too. He was really helpful in encouraging us to try different things with our cameras. All in all a great experience.
