With a background in music and sound art, Leslie has been focusing on photography for the past two decades and his images have appeared in numerous publications, including Vanity Fair, the New York Times and French Vogue. He was the chief photographer for TED and the World Science Festival.


In 2007 Leslie took photographs of photographers, and others, who attended the Lucie photography awards. This was the start of an ongoing project, called 1000 portraits, which resulted in over 8000 portraits being taken during 30 award ceremonies.


At the beginning of 2009, starting on the day of the first inauguration of Barack Obama, Leslie travelled across the Sun Belt, from Florida to California, taking photographs of the landscapes and people he encountered. He returned towards the end of 2011 to document the changes that had taken place over the intervening years. Photographs from these two trips formed an exhibition called Stormbelt, which was held at Toronto Imageworks Gallery in May 2012. A selection of photographs were published as a photobook, also titled Stormbelt, with essays by Edward Burtynsky and Cameron Sinclair.
