With a slightly alarming fetish
for the click of a shutter and the smell of C-41 developer,
Wilson Adams is not your average 18 year-old
“photographer.” For starters, he is not armed with an
entry-level DSLR purchased with his parents’ money, nor does

Wilson clocks out everyday and heads to take a sunset picture
at one of his favorite spots, which include the top of Flint
Mill, the South Holston Weir Dams, and anywhere in a park or
forest. He is an Assistant Scoutmaster at Troop 3 of
First Presbyterian Church, the troop in which he obtained his

Well, as you are about to find out, I am a pretty busy
guy. This site gets worked on when I have free seconds

in progress, but I'm getting there.
