Excellent writing and exceptional photography seize a person’s attention, stimulate conversation and reveal an captivating story. I want to help you capture an engaging story through words and pixels.
My name is Rebecca St. Pierre. I am a freelance writer and photographer based in Ontario, Canada. Whether you’re a magazine editor looking for a professional writer, a not-for-profit organization needing help preparing a grant application, or a small business searching for a freelance writer to produce copy for your website, I will create compelling material to promote your organization or business.
Prior to becoming a freelance writer and photographer, I conducted scientific research for 20 years at Western University. As a freelance writer, I have worked with publications, organizations, businesses and entrepreneurs, such as The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame, Western University, London Arts Council, and Salthaven Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Centre. You can find my work in Understorey Magazine, Western Alumni Gazette, Eatdrink Magazine, YES Mag: The Science Magazine for Adventurous Minds, and The Fur-Bearing Trout…And Other True Tales of Canadian Life.
The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame is often faced with tough, scientifically-based writing assignments and not everyone is up to the challenge. Rebecca St. Pierre certainly was when she wrote the 18 biographies of our laureates. Rebecca’s work was delivered professionally, with precision, and on time. She took a big load off our shoulders and we were very pleased.
Executive Director of The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame
My images have appeared in award-winning magazines, seven Ontario shops, 27 art exhibitions and many Canadian homes. I have captured portraits of Canadian scientists, a software developer, a chief executive officer, London families, and pets of all shapes and sizes. Southwestern Ontario residents and visitors have purchased over 1,000 of my blank, eco-friendly photography art cards. The Photography page offers a small sample of the images I have taken of Canadian professionals for publications, business websites, not-for-profit organizations and social media profiles.
Rebecca St. Pierre interviewed me for the Faculty of Science at the University of Western Ontario... I was very pleased with the article and photo and have had many people, including colleagues at other universities, mention the article to me.
