Charles Edson is an avid hiker and considers himself to be an adventure photographer. Through his photography, he captures his journeys and experiences while hiking the mountains of the Northeast. Originally from Maryland, Charles moved to the Berkshires in 2010 where he attended Berkshire Community College and graduated with an Associate in Exercise Science. He started hiking in the Berkshires which led him to expand to the surrounding states including: New York, Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire. After becoming an Adirondack 46er, he shifted to explore other states. From hot summer days to subzero winter temperatures, he braves the conditions to experience the outdoors and capture all of its beauty. He is currently working on the Northeast 111 which consists of hiking all mountains above 4,000 feet in the Northeast. Charles currently lives in Lee, Massachusetts.
