Adama Kouyaté trained in a French photographer's studio in Bamako as a young man and then worked as a chauffeur. He returned to photography in the mid-1960s, practicing in Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast and finally Mali, where he returned in 1969 to set up a studio in the city of Ségou (northeast of Bamako on the Niger River). In addition to his studio portraiture, Kouyaté photographed weddings and other special events.
