Lachlan Labere

My journey with Black Press Media began in 2004 as a reporter with the 100 Mile House Free Press. The following year, I moved to the Shuswap to join the team at the Observer. I've since had the honour of sharing the stories of Salmon Arm and neighbouring communities, photographing news and community events. Outside of work, I make frequent use of the area's recreational opportunities, hiking in the summer and cross-country skiing in the winter.
