Júlio de Matos has been active as an educator in the area of photography for many years. In 1980 and 1981, as Graduate Assistant of History of Aesthetics of Photography, he shared responsibility for some classes at RIT, Rochester Institute of Technology, in Rochester, NY, USA.

In 1982, following his return to Portugal, he created the Advanced Course in Photography for Árvore, an Advanced Arts Training Cooperative in Porto. He was its director and faculty member until 1986. He taught - Introduction to Photography (including b&w darkroom work); History and Aesthetics of Photography; Photography Project; Pin-Hole Photography: Alternative & Non-Silver Photographic Processes.

From 1986 until 2003, he taught “Introduction to Photography” (including b&w darkroom work), and “Fashion Photography” (including photo studio practice), at Citex, the Portuguese Vocational Training Centre of Textile and Clothing.

I supervised several free courses and workshops, namely Pin-Hole, Artistic Photography, Photographic Laboratory at Árvore, Porto; Xerography at the Higher Institute of Plastic Arts of Madeira; Cyanotype in the 3rd Encounters of Photography in Coimbra. I also coordinated internships and fellowships.

From 2001 until 2004, he was in charge of the “Photography Project” course for the recently created Photography Degree at the ESAP, Higher School of Arts of Porto. He has also supervised internships and workshops in diferent photo areas at Árvore, Porto; ISAPM, Funchal; EFC, Coimbra.
