Chanelle Leslie Photography

I want to tell the stories that matter to you - it's a quality that comes with my background in newspapers as a professional photojournalist. Let's work together.

What kind of things do I shoot?

I can usually be found at events on weekends, shooting and filming happenings like gigs, weddings & parties. The rest of the time, I tend to work on portrait-style shoots for media outlets, fashion, exhibitions, advertising  & individuals. I'm experienced with both studio lighting and  outdoor shoots, working with available or augmented light.

Where else can my work be seen?

I've worked with major publishers, brands and agencies around the world, including Fairfax Media Australia, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, News Ltd Australia, Interweave Press (USA), Catchlight Media (UK), Key Media (US), Classic Photographers (US), and the Adelaide Fashion Festival. Magazines and books I've been published in include but aren't limited to Circus (Germany), Jetstar Asia, Enhance (Sydney), Pocketto (Melbourne), South Australian Style, Birdee (Australia), Bloom (Australia), Spook (Australia), and Attitude (South Australia) magazines. I've also been featured in exhibitions at Fourwords, the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Salad Days, and the Murray Bridge Regional Gallery. I've been printed on a Zara t-shirt for my work with some of the world's top fashion bloggers. My photos have been awarded multiple times, including a front cover piece that received an honourable mention in the South Australian Press Awards.
