Rebecca Akin Photography

I am a nature and travel photographer from Athens, Georgia. Lifelong interests in travel and the outdoors contributed to my enthusiasm for photography, and the combination has led to travels throughout the U.S. and Canada, with additional trips to Europe, Japan, the Middle East, and South America. After retirement from the University of Georgia as a computer analyst, even more time has been devoted to photography and travel.
