Khalil Shah Photography
My name is Khalil Fazal, also known as Khalil Shah. Apart from being a fun-loving, spirited and happy person, I am an artist, a web & graphics designer and a photographer. I believe that life is too short to see and appreciate all the beauty that exists in God's world, therefore I do not confine myself to a single domain or type of art. My work spans but is not limited to natural landscapes, portraits, urban life, rural landscapes, macro photography, photomontages and illustrations.
I have been to many fantastic places and met many wonderful people during my work and I have loved every bit of it. One of my favorite areas in photography is to capture everyday acts of seemingly ordinary people, but who, like every person, fill a key role in the society's grand design. A special section of my photography is devoted to this aspect. I hail from the historic and culturally rich city of Lahore, a city that has offered me never-ending possibilities and countless frames to capture. I live in the heart of Lahore and have spent most of my academic and professional life here and currently work with an international software development company.

"Just wanted to drop in a line and say "Fabulous" work frou you. More than half the images are jaw dropping.
I keep admiring these images all the time... sad to say I do not comment most of the time 'cus I see so many comments already ont hem that I do not know what to wrtite more than "Nice Work" and that surely would not be able to express what I really mean. Keep up the good work .. you are an inspiration.
God bless !!"

I have not (yet) met *Khalil* in person, but the conversations that have flowed back and forth in the comment streams of our photo-streams, chat him, call him, and ( dream him too) make me feel as if I almost know him.
He is Truly a magical ARTIST+PHOTOGRAPHER.
I very much hope, that we get the opportunity to meet in person, one day so that, I can offer more personal thanks for all of the inspiration and sheer joy of amazing imagery, he shares with me.
Great sense of colors and perfect compositions, I just love his work too much.
I really appreciate him also when taking some time and look at my work and said some thing encourage me to go ahead and continues in the world of art called photography.
I Love this person too much...........!
Love U man

"Khalil shah is a. creative photographer who knows the art of producing eye catching images.
The forces of nature the sun,moon,light and shadow do not always cooperate.Sometimes an image uses a small or agreat amount but creates miracle. A photgrapher can achieve this level of control that is almost heavenly.Khalil shah is the man who some time creates suh an eye catching image."

"khalil's world reminds me of a cinematic vision of life...
...where blue skies sweep bluer, towering white clouds fly higher, lazy rivers flow quieter, and where each portrait draws out the dignity the subject deserves.
