Umang Shah is an architecture & interior photographer from Ahmedabad, India. He graduated from Symbiosis School of Photography in the stream of Visual Arts & Photography, he says it has been a rollercoaster ride and the bouts get to him each time a new shot is to be shot.
Jolting from product, food, portrait, and now finally perching onto architectural and interior photography, Umang has diversified his spark into multiple genres. Architectural photography has led him to understand the designer’s concepts and tries to meet their expectations each time with each shot.
Umang as a person, is driven by the inspiration from cultures, people and places which is what keeps him unvarying with his niche - Architecture Photography. He believes in capturing stories and does not leave the quirk out of the frame, while still keeping on to his beliefs of minimalism.
