So my Father-in-law loves the reality show Bar Rescue. We heard some chatter in the hood that they were taking over a local bar for one of their watering hole makeovers. With a chance to be get some reality TV air time, it was obvious we were going to check out the grand opening of St. John's newest pub. What was once the vintage Six Point Inn is now the ultra new Over Easy Bar and Breakfast. At first glance from the outside, I'll have to say the new logo and signage suck. Feels like I'm heading to eat breakfast at a strip mall. The old logo wasn't any good either but at least the street side sign was big and had character. The inside of the new bar is nice and clean, maybe a little too clean for me. Seems like all the history of the older establishment and North Portland has been erased. Outside of a few fancy cocktail names, nothing in this place says anything about the neighborhood or city. This bar could be anywhere in the country. Maybe they'll put up some Trailblazer sh-t when the TV crew leaves.
My name is Cameron Smith, welcome to my studio. I specialize in portrait photography, event coverage, and some say I have a thing for dive bars and cocktails.. Based in Atlanta with frequent trips to Las Vegas and Portland Oregon, I love to travel. Design and writing skills are some of the extra services I can bust out with my camera. From blogs to photo books, and below average art that consists mostly of ink drawings, I'm considered by my Mom to be an artist - whatever my Mom says goes! I'm also lucky enough to be the in-house photographer with Hogs & Heifers Saloon in Las Vegas, I've taken pictures of some wild shit! When not taking pictures of said crazy things, or planning a wedding celebration on my future ranch, you can find me in my garden with my wife and pets.
Living the green life in East Atlanta for now with big farm dreams on the horizon!
