As a photographer for over 20 years, capturing the heart of my subjects is my goal.
My motto is, "Have Camera, Will Travel!"
Hi! I am Lisa Adkins, a native Tennessean with an unwavering passion for capturing life's most enchanting moments through her lens. From the rolling hills of Hardeman County to the vibrant community of Nutbush in Haywood County, My upbringing and experiences have shaped my unique perspective as a photographer. I continue to draw inspiration from the breathtaking landscapes and vibrant communities that surround her.
My photography journey began in the 4th grade when I won a camera in a 4-H contest, igniting a lifelong love affair with capturing the beauty of the world around her. While attending high school, I honed my skills as a member of the annual staff, immersing myself in the captivating world of black-and-white darkroom photography.
A self-taught professional, my talent and dedication have earned me a reputation as a sought-after photographer in various realms. Notably, I served as the official photographer for the renowned Dottie West Music Fest in McMinnville, TN, for several years, flawlessly immortalizing the spirit and energy of the festival's performances.
My versatility and ability to capture the essence of diverse subjects led me to collaborate closely with the talented band Highway 41 Blues Band, capturing their captivating performances on stage. Additionally, I had the honor of being the official photographer for a memorable evening with the beloved Henry Winkler, immortalizing the special moments shared with the iconic actor.
Beyond the realm of music, my passion for photography has taken me on an incredible journey. I proudly held the prestigious title of the official photographer for the esteemed Muscle Shoals Songwriters Festival in 2021, capturing the raw emotion and creative brilliance of talented artists. Furthermore, my quest for capturing musical talent and a keen eye for detail led me to serve as the official sponsor photographer for the West Tennessee Metal Devastation Festival in both 2022 and 2023, expertly documenting the raw energy and electrifying performances that define the metal music scene.
A highlight of my career was when I was honored with the Excellence for Outstanding Print Media award by the Daughters of the American Revolution in 2019, underscoring my commitment to excellence in my craft.
