Also the real life inspiration to him was his good friend Danish Farid, who happens to be a great photographer himself. According to him photography is an art that involves skill and creativity. Sher Ali khan’s Favorite quote is,

 “When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes; but when you photograph people in Black & White, you photograph their souls”.

His passion in music comes from his dire need for it whilst editing hundreds of pictures. He became involved in music in 2000 and it lasted till 2001. He was in a band named Visaal for which he was the lead vocalist and also played a bit of guitar, which recorded 5 albums; two of which were released with two music videos. This band has been inactive since, due to physical distances of the people in the band.
