Jay comes from a family with rich artistic tradition, he grew up in a home where everything revolved around art. In fact, art has been a way of life for the Panesar Family for three generations.

Jay’s Grandfather Kirpal Singh told the story of the Sikh people to the world through his paintings of pivotal mome
nts in Sikh history. Also, Jay’s parents, Jarnail Singh and Baljit Kaur are well known in the community for their paintings depicting the historical and cultural heritage of Punjab. Thus, art has always been a great part of Jay’s life from the very beginning.

It wasn’t until the final year of high school, in an art class where Jay discovered his true passion in photography. What began as a mere hobby has now become a part-time profession. Jay chose photography over the other art forms as it allowed him to explore and capture the richness and authenticity of life, as it is. Fascinated by the play of light and shadows on people and everything around him, he enjoys capturing those precious moments. Specializing in Landscape & architecture, portrait, commercial and wedding photography.
