MAGANBHAI PATEL, also known as Masterji, is a Coventry photographer originally from Surat, in India. He trained as a school teacher but, arriving in Coventry in 1951, only found work in factories. He moved between a succession of houses before settling into Widdrington Road, Radford, Coventry where his skill as a photographer became known.
Masterji's success enabled him to work professionally, and he opened Master’s Art Studio in 1969. He has remained there ever since. His son Ravindra now runs the business.
