My guest for this episode of the podcast is Cherie McKay.
Melbournian to the heart, divorced mum of four boys, Cherie is an entrepreneur, photographer and writer. She ventured into photography after spending over ten years in the corporate sector but quickly realised the world didn’t need another portrait photographer – instead the world needed beautiful camera bags specifically designed for women.
Cherie went on and designed her own range of camera bags and founded the company SHUTTER|bag in 2009 and after establishing international distributors, Cherie sold SHUTTER|bag in 2013.
Cherie is currently working towards incorporating more travel and street photography into her life. As part of this, she decided to embark on what many would consider a crazy adventure: flying to the US, renting a campervan and driving coast-to-coast from Los Angeles to New York on her own.
I found Cherie’s story captivating and her sense of humor extremely entertaining. She has lots of funny anecdotes to share about her road trip.
Duration 35m 50s.
