Interview: Photographer Parmveer Masuta
We had a brief moment with Parmveer Masuta, a modest photographer always searching for more and the simplest best advice to give anyone. Thank you Parm for your time and being so awesome!
What was your life like before photography?
Before I jumped on the photography bandwagon, my life was pretty average. Still is. I was fresh out of high school, working a minimum waged job, and attending a local university trying to figure out what to do with my future. Time sure does fly!”
How would you describe your vision/style?
I would describe my vision as meaningful and my style as moody and adventurous. The moods for each adventure change depending on a variety of different elements such as the person I am photographing, their personality, their story, the location, weather, etc.
What would you like to see more of in the photography world?
I would like to see more aspiring photographers step outside of their comfort zone.
What is the best thing you’ve experienced by being a photographer?
Being able to travel to awesome locations and meet rad people as well as listen to their stories. The more meaningful the story, the more I want to photograph them. This all ties back to the description of my vision/style.
How did you attain your camera gear?
As stated before, I began working a minimum wage job immediately after graduating high school. That job helped me save up enough money to purchase my first DSLR camera. It took me about two years to save up enough money because I was not working many hours, but I finally had enough money to purchase myself a Canon T1i, my first DSLR camera. I continued working my minimum wage job while practicing my photography and eventually my practices led to me photographing events which helped pay for my other gear.
Do you have any personal tips to other photographers?
“Get out there!”
