About Me

Shabbir boxwalla


I am a dentist and a photographer living in Houston, Texas, USA. 

Art and science have always been my passions. I am fascinated by the simplicity and the complexity of the human body. I am in awe looking at the beautiful world around me. Put another way, I am amazed by the art in science (human body) and the science in art (photography). When you work on a tooth you are working within millimeters of range and for that you must have a lot of patience and be very detail oriented. I see the same with a photographer trying to capture a scene; he must have a keen eye for detail and be patient for the right conditions to create a certain mood in the photograph, whether it is a foggy morning, a sunrise, or a sunset.

Growing up, my family and I went through a lot of hardships, emotionally and financially. I loved sketching, painting and any form of art that I could do in my spare time. This became a much-needed form of escape for me. My father was also an artist; untrained and amateur, he passed on his love of creativity to his children and grandchildren. It became the activity we all bonded through and how we spent quality time together. As the oldest of four children and knowing that my family would depend on me in the future, I knew that I would have to pursue a career which would give myself and my family financial freedom. The time this allowed for me to enjoy my hobby was an added bonus to a career as a dentist.  

How lucky for me that I ended up with a career that, like photography, blends both art and science. The knowledge of the science of dentistry helps me to create beautiful artistic smiles and that also keeps me passionate about art. 

I bought my first camera, a Canon PowerShot, a simple point and shoot digital camera, in the year 2000 when my daughter was born. Using this amazing instrument, I was able to capture her every milestone; her laughs, her cries, every moment, frozen in time. My journey continued with the birth of my son. I fell in love with this new art form from which I was learning how to express the depth of my love for my children and family. Later, when the kids outgrew my endless photo shoots, I began to develop an interest in landscape photography. The family might not sit still for long enough for me to compose my shots anymore, but the beautiful places we have visited together always cooperate and let me take home a memorable souvenir. This is where I feel the art and love in photography. 

Finally, I started reading books on landscape photography. Composing your shot, effects of light, effects of weather, post-processing your photograph using software like Photoshop or Lightroom, etc. All of this is the fascinating science behind making a photograph. I bought a Canon Rebel Xsi, which allowed me to learn to take pictures in other modes like aperture priority, shutter priority, and manual mode. I honed my skills on that camera and it taught me a lot. Presently, I am using a Canon 5D Mark IV camera. 

I created this website to showcase my portfolio and for anyone to acquire a piece of my art. They can value it as a cherished memory, an unforgettable experience they shared with people special to them, or feel the wanderlust that led me to these places.
