Photographer, Creator and Explorer


My Story.

Cherie Pilliod CarterOriginally from Ohio, I moved to Knoxville, Tenn., to attend the University of Tennessee and later graduate from Austin Peay State University with a bachelor’s degree in art and a minor in marketing. I’m a marketing director for a healthcare company based in Nashville, TN. But in my spare time, I enjoy snapping photos where I can. Through my camera or through an imaginary viewfinder, I often see life in a composition – seeing interest in everything like lines, texture and emotion.

I’m inspired by the photography of Alfred Wertheimer, Chris Orwig, Mark Seliger and Jeremy Cowart . They all display beautiful compositions, stunning raw portraits, and unique perspectives.

But I’m mostly inspired by the everyday photographer that I find on the internet and social media, who are trying to get their images out in the world just like we all do, one picture at a time.
