Welcome to my life, my dreams, my aspirations and personal cook book! I'm a part-time musician / film-maker / photographer and full-time foodie.
Sitting out on my balcony with a cup of Masala Chai (read below for recipe and complimentary snack options), chips and a dose of heavy metal in the background, is arguably the best way to start my day / afternoon / night!
A laptop with Lightroom or Photoshop open and your edits to complete, would make it all the better!
And if there isn't any music in the background, I'll make my own. Having played in a professional band, performing live gives me a great rush. I love creating beats and playing the Cajon - in fact let's jam together before or after your shoot.
Are you a water baby? I'm a certified scuba diver, and I love shooting underwater. I am very intrigued with the idea that imagery created underwater can be so real and surreal at the same time.
Give me a shout and we can dive into ideas of creating something unique.
Basically, I'm quirky, creative, obsessed with the finer details and itching to get to know you and create unforgettable moments for you to cherish! I can't promise much else apart from the fact that every session with me is unique, personalised and built to get the best out of our time together.
I'm Parabjeet Singh from Bangalore - India, otherwise known as Johny, otherwise known as the World's Greatest Fan of the Masala Dosa (the last one is official).
Masala Chai recipe:
In a mortar, crush 1 clove, 3 cardamom pods and 1 inch cinnamon stick.
Transfer the crushed spices to a small saucepan, add a glass of water, 1 tbsp tea powder, 1 inch ginger grated and bring to a boil.
Remove the pan from the heat, cover and let steep for 5 minutes.
Add 1/2 a glass of milk and sugar to taste to the pan and bring to a boil.
Stir the chai, then strain it into a warmed teapot or directly into teacups.
Sip Sip Hurray!!
