My name is Charlie Akins and I live at Smith Mountain Lake in Huddleston, Virginia. I am well-known for photographing events like reunions, festivals and weddings. I love what I do.
My photography has gathered recognition for a diverse collection of work ranging from landscapes to portraits. I also have a love for travel, the outdoors, web/graphic design, art and playing the piano.
Through my lens I strive to capture that magical something we often overlook. It is in these moments that I learn something new about myself, and marvel at the beauty of this extraordinary life.
