Photographer Clarence H. Shaw (b. 1872 - d. 1902) standing next to his photo wagon near the Grand Canyon.

Clarence Hugh Shaw was an itinerant photographer who traveled extensively throughout Arizona Territory during the 1890s. A friend of Sharlot Hall, Clarence wandered through the forests of Northern Arizona with his wagon loaded with photo equipment, chemicals, and glass plates. His photographs captured Native Americans living in both Northern and Southern Arizona, life in Phoenix and the surrounding desert, the town of Williams and its forests, and the beauty of the Grand Canyon.
