Hello there and thanks for stopping by.
I'm Phil Carpenter, a veteran photojournalist, video journalist and reporter in Montreal, Quebec. I've been photographing and reporting on a range of issues across the globe for over 25 years, and teaching photography and visual visual storytelling for more than a decade.
Right now I'm a full time VJ/reporter at Global News television in Montreal. That's after working for more than 20 years as a newspaper photojournalist, 13 of which were spent on staff at the Montreal Gazette. I've also freelanced for various other print media and wire services.
Journalism has taken me across North America, Israel, Bosnia, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Haiti and others countries. I've covered variety of topics including conflict, sports, natural disasters, politics and human interest stories.
For teaching, I taught photojournalism and visual journalism at the School of Journalism at Concordia University in Montreal, for more than a decade. I also helped to develop that institution's Graduate Diploma in Visual Journalism programme. In addition I spent a month in 2009 teaching multimedia journalism as part of a programme to train working journalists in Rwanda.
I'm also the author of Breast Stories, a book which explores issues of femininity and female identity through the profiles (photos and essays) of more than 50 women from across Canada who have had mastectomy.
