Tales of the Cocktail is a booze fueled, week long event held annually in the great city of New Orleans. I've been lucky enough to photograph this party for the past six years and feel blessed to be invited back every Summer to be a part of it. The 2016 version did not disappoint. Events large and small were held all over town, and hoards of bartenders and cocktail fans flocked to each one of them. The Absolut Welcome Reception at the Ace Hotel was a high energy way to get the week going. Ace is a newer hotel in downtown New Orleans and is full of unique rooms and spaces. The crew at Absolute did an awesome job filling each area with visually interesting elements, lights, and a handful of the world's craftiest bartenders. Healthy servings of tasty liquor laced drinks were at every turn, time to cause a stir!

My name is Cameron Smith, this is my photography studio and farm! We specialize in events, portraits, cocktails and dive bars.. Based in the ATL with frequent trips to Las Vegas and Portland Oregon, we like to city hop. Design, writing, are more things we do on the farm. From blogs to photo books, and below average art that consists mostly of ink drawings, we're creative folks. We're also crazy enough to be house photographers with Hogs & Heifers Saloon in Vegas AND Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans....We see some crazy shit! When not taking pictures of said crazy things, or planning a wedding celebration on a future ranch, you can find us in our garden with the dogs and cats.
Living the green life in East Atlanta for now, Smith Farm in Northern Georgia the future??
