ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Ahmed Badr has specialized in photography for nearly two decades and throughout several countries. He is proud to have fought against the stereotype of going into engineering or dentistry, instead following his passion of photography. For Badr, photography is a beautiful artform that allows one the freedom of expressing passions and love of the world, while opening up the mind and finding beauty in things one traditionally would not; and blasting our mundane world with light and color. Badr’s style is a combination of photojournalism and fine-art photography, with a touch of fashion and creative lighting. His photos are inspired by light, color and techniques from black and white processing, vintage photos, creative perspective, and most importantly, the personalities of the people he photographs. Badr has been the photography instructor for AANM’s SURA Arts Academy since 2018, with his passion for photography driving him to want to share it with his community and the next generation of young artists. He believes that empowering young people with the tools of art is one of the best ways to create a better future.
