Luke Hendry studied print and broadcast journalism at another college, and, at the start of his final year, was hired by The Toronto Star as one of a group of student reporters staffing the police radio room. After graduation, he was a freelance reporter and researcher, followed by more than four years of reporting and photojournalism for an independent weekly newspaper. Hendry enrolled in 2013 in Loyalist’s fast-track photojournalism program and “jobbed out” to The Intelligencer daily newspaper as a reporter-photographer, where he remains. He taught in the program from 2011-2013, served as supervising editor for the college’s Pioneer newspaper from 2006-2015, and freelance occasionally. Hendry also serves on the Loyalist photojournalism advisory board.
Photojournalism program testimonial:
Already a reporter and mostly self-taught photographer, I went to Loyalist to improve my photojournalistic skills but received much more. I was amazed by the environment: experienced, supportive, caring, accessible faculty; classmates who challenged one another to excel and cheered others’ success; and a well-rounded program which adapts to a changing industry. It was the best learning experience I’ve ever had, which is why I remain involved with the program.
