Students bring their own digital SLR cameras to learn more about topics ranging from composition and using natural light to working with computer programs such as Adobe Photoshop. Instructor Steve Matteo's work has appeared in places such as Sports Illustrated and HBO. He uses this diverse range of work to help clients better learn to shoot children's sports, family photos, and vacation photos. Students can choose from a range of topics for lessons, including basic digital photography, sports, portraits, landscape and composition, candid/editorial, flash & natural light, photoshop/post production, portfolio review, and in the field shooting, which may require an extra fee. Students should read through their camera manual and be familiar with their camera's functions before attending. Lessons take place on select weekday afternoons and evenings, as well as weekend mornings and afternoons.

Steve Matteo Photography

Winner of several contest awards from the Wedding Photojournalist Association including photographer of the year in 2012, Steve Matteo still remembers his early days as a news photographer for a small suburban weekly, rushing back to the newsroom to watch the film slowly develop and a sliver of history take shape. Though he went on to tackle more exciting assignments and career changes—working at the Daily Herald, compiling images for UIC's yearlong City 2000 photo project, and photographing Princess Diana's visit to Chicago in 1996—one thing hasn't changed: the thrill of knowing that his camera has memorialized a story forever.

Today, Steve is equally at home shooting for Fortune 500 companies and clients such as Northwestern University as he is creating individual portraits. When he photographs a wedding, he uses the same ingenuity and photojournalistic eye that he honed while working as a sports photographer for HBO Sports and as a news photographer for the Associated Press. His wedding photography, meanwhile, has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, garnered a 2012 Bride's Choice award on, and won the 2012 WPJA Photographer of the Year.

Customer Reviews

My wife really enjoyed this class and getting a better understanding of how to use her camera to get great pictures.
Benjamin N. · December 29, 2013
Very good introduction to the fundamentals of digital photography, with lots of personal attention to the students' needs. It turned out that the class was too basic for me, but Steve was very good at answering questions at all levels, and I certainly learned enough to make the class worthwhile. Thanks.
Elaine F. · November 21, 2013
it was a great class. very informative and interactive. steve was personable and called each of us by name. a little long of a class at the end of a work day. would have been nice to be able to schedule a weekend class for me personally. but i enjoyed it very much and learned a lot of new tricks and old topics.
