An Inspiring Commercial Photographer
Now and again, someone comes along that just makes you proud. I’m not one to brag, but I have met a few famous people, millionaires, top thought-leaders in their fields and some people I would say are pretty inspiring. I’ve also met some real-life dickheads who I’d rather forget. When I meet someone who does something exciting, I can get a bit like that energetic-happy dog who annoys the shit out of you he’s so damn happy and excited. But you love him right? I said right?
I’m going to introduce you to an inspiring commercial photographer by the name of Charney Magri. I’m super-happy to know her and I’m honored to call her a friend.
Charney is a woman to be reckoned with. A wife, a mother and a commercial photographer with a very impressive resume.
Originally from Perth, Western Australia – Charney left those sunny shores to build a name for herself out in the world. And that she most certainly did.
Who else receives a letter from Hillary Clinton thanking them for sending her a book? Charney. Yes – she produced a fantastic book titled “Women of the UAE” and it is stunning. You can grab a copy on Charney’s own website.
