Meet the Instructor:

Amadou Diallo is a photographer, author, educator and digital imaging expert. A musician by training, Diallo brings his passion for creative expression to each of these endeavours. Diallo’s vast experience with digital capture, editing, and printing has made him a sought-after instructor and consultant for amateur and professional photographers alike. Indeed, for Diallo one of the great pleasures outside of creating his own photographs is teaching others how to reap the benefits of digital imaging in their own work. This love of sharing information led him to write Mastering Digital Black and White: A Photographer’s Guide to High Quality Black-and-White Imaging and Printing (Cengage Learning), widely hailed as a seminal work on digital photography technique. What truly separates Diallo from other digital experts is his unique ability to communicate both the technical and aesthetic requirements for creating stunning images. He is on the faculty of New York’s renowned International Center of Photography (ICP). His latest book, The 50 Greatest Photo Opportunities in New York City (Cengage Learning) combines stunning imagery with step-by-step guidance to readers for capturing memorable and professional-looking images of the Big Apple.
