For the past 15 years I have worked in visual arts both as a commercial videographer and a photographer. I was nominated for my work in off broadway for a Spotlight On award, for best lighting design.

My joy is working with clients who seek unique and loving photos of themselves, family and friends.

There really aren't enough stars in the sky to rate the work of this masterful artist. Everything he undertakes is laced with inestimable creativity, craft, vision and dedication. There is nothing routine or common about the work he produces --- it is all distinctive, diverse and reflective of one's hopes and dreams. That may sound trite, but it's true. Hire Cornelius and you ensure your own success.

We couldn't be more thrilled with Cornelius Matteo and his work. He is an amazing photographer, hands down the best we've ever known. He spent most of the day with us setting up multiple scenarios, all for a very reasonable cost. We got a ton of wonderful pictures from it that we can't wait to share with our friends. Getting our Great Dane, Maus, to relax and hold still while still keeping his ears up is quite a task, but Cornelius pulled it off.

Cornelius’ photography captures essence: the passion and beauty of soul – a remarkable gift.
