Born in Dekalb Illinois in July of 1980, Willy Adkins first found his eye for details in 1996 while at Cocoa Beech Florida. He was at the beech at about 4:30 in the morning watching the sun come up. He had a simple 35mm disposable camera in hand and took what he feels is his most amazing photo of 2 dolphins coming up out of a white cap wave between some palm trees with a beautiful sun coming up on the ocean horizon. It was that early morning that he decided to pursue photographic arts further…
Known throughout the country for his model portfolio production, Willy has gained much respect and attention for pushing to create art with shock value and bold appeal. He has always had the desire to make his work different, and gave his work the name “Deviant Desires Photography - The Art of Willy Adkins” for that reason. Over 11 years Willy has traveled to several places across the country and worked with hundreds of models seeking art rather then simple photos.
Outside of Photography Willy is well known for being the CEO of Twisted Wish Productions. TWP is a production company that builds and promotes nothing but events for charity featuring donated time and talent from all types of artists (music, comedic, photography, paints, etc…). He is President of Spook Show Entertainment, an entertainment company that produces radio, tv, film, tours, haunted overnights, and much more. Willy is also very well known as a paranormal investigator (Dekalb Area Rep. for The American Ghost Society / Founder of the Paranormal Research Community), Radio Personality, and new ventures in modeling and acting as well. But if you are to ask him what his most proud achievement is, he would reply “Being Daddy”.
