Best known as @DezJeff on Instagram with more than 64,000 followers, Jeff is a Montréal-based photographer, videographer, blogger and social media influencer whose images take fans on a wealth of local and overseas adventures.

Jeff’s creative eye is constantly on the lookout for new opportunities to express his vision and practice his craft. His travel, culinary and lifestyle photography is luminous, crisp and expertly composed, yet his style is natural and spontaneous, always authentic. Jeff’s refined sense of aesthetics and attention to detail comes, in part, from his studies in architecture and graphic design.


Through his blog, “Jeff On The Road”, readers stay on top of the latest trends as they discover the hottest restaurants, cafes and activities through his lens, and read about a range of topics from fashion to travel to technology.


That’s why we are so delighted that DezJeff accepted our invitation to take over Tourisme Montréal’s Instagram account, @montreal, for a day, bringing us a glimpse of his “Summer in Montréal”.
