Leslie Schachter, Montreal-Photorgrapher

The Globe & Mail's 2016 Summer Program

Three links to samples of my work:

1. Photo essay: Recent widower and Vankleek Hill hobby farmer Cameron Rodger tends to his sugarbush for the first time since his wife's passing (personal project, spring, 2013).

2. Author portrait: Montreal-based poet Norm Sibum has published his first novel, 700-page The Traymore Rooms (On assignment for The Link, September 17, 2013).  

3. Studio photos: Actors in a production of Tom Stoppard's play Travesties pose for press photos at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts in Montreal (spring, 2014).


STATEMENT: As a freelance visual journalist, I bring my natural curiosity to every assignment. I am inquisitive, reliable and hardworking and always trying to find the best angle to tell the story. I have two years of freelance photojournalism experience and I have published written pieces too. My work has appeared in the Montreal Gazette, Ottawa Citizen, Jerusalem Post, Journal de Montréal and others. I'm comfortable capturing a rowdy demonstration, pursuing politicians or taking the time to make the best shot one on one. I live for the opportunity to express my passion for journalistic storytelling in traditional and emerging digital forms.
