Presenter information:

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 Centre 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.

    • Office Administration & Skills Diploma

      Great Course Very Easy to Follow 4

      All the videos broke up on occasions. Easier reading method such as two continuous pages as with Microsoft Word would have been better

      Digital marketing course 3

      Mostly good: accessible, straightforward to understand, but giving enough detailed info to make you think you are learning. However, sometimes more detail on "how to do it" rather than "what you have to do" would have been good. Also, three enquiries about how to access support materials (as advertised) went either unanswsered or unsatisfactorily answered. I still have not received them.
