We ‘still’ the show!
Montage is the 'moment stilling' committee of UPG college, aka the photography club of UPG. We capture anything and everything that happens in and around the campus, from very first event of year of each committee to the final grand convocation and annual day and everything in between. We cover every frame and every emotion throughout. Montage is a platform where people who see the world from their unique perspective come together to share their views, capture it and learn. We cover what our college does and what all creative committees do in the college. Capturing all their memories in the form of photographs and videos and enhancing them via editing to give them the best nostalgia when one looks back at it.
Our moto is to give a platform to all the photo enthusiast in our college to explore their creativity, get new experiences, learn and have fun while taking a step towards enhancing their skills.
