Hello! Bonjour! Guten Tag!
My name is Jaspreet Monga. I grew up in New Delhi, India and have called Toronto, Canada home for the past 18 years. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been taking photographs. Starting at a young age with my Dad’s Canon AE1 and FM2 SLRs, I would take photographs of Wildlife and Landscapes. Taking photography courses throughout high school taught me how to process film and I used to love working in the dark room. Some years later, I took a trip to Europe for a few weeks, carrying with me a Canon SD790 (probably my favourite point and shoot) and shot around 2700 photos. I think it was because of this trip my love for photography grew to what it is today.
Today, I carry my DSLR (a Canon 5D Mark3) with me everyday, no matter where I’m going. There are so many amazing things that happen all around us, every single day, and its nice to be able to capture those moments. I love to do street/urban, wildlife, landscape and event photography. The photographs here are a small snippet of my work, travels, and my life through the lens.
I also enjoy teaching new and budding photographers that want to learn how to better use their cameras (nothing makes me cringe more than seeing a DSLR used in Auto mode!). If you’d like to learn, have a question, or have any comments, please use the form below and get in touch!
