He shared a few of his works as a sample and reference to begin with.Architecture and photography are connected on one another.

Mr. Onil Shah, a professional architectural photographer conducted a theory session followed by introduction to using a camera and associated tools. Creativity and flexibility are two very interesting terms. A combination of both was the foundation of Clay workshop.
