My first real job was at Villa Pizza in Johnson City New York. A few of my high school friends worked there and loved it, what's not to love? The pay was a tip free $4.25 an hour and you got free pizza. Free f*ckin pizza, count me in! It was awesome working there and to this day I still practice some of the good food serving habits I learned at the restaurant. Has anyone out there ever worked with Italians though? They're crazy folks. I originally thought most of the older chefs on day shift hated me, always yelling something out in my direction. Some of the words were in English, whatever language they were using, I couldn't understand it. And regardless of what they were saying, it didn't sound nice. Why were these Italian guys always screamin' at me? I was just a young high school kid trying to make a buck. And I was honestly a hard worker, good work ethic is in my blood. Turns out all the yelling and screaming was nothing, it's how these guys communicated on the norm. Cheers to the Italians for letting their voices be heard, and also making some of the world's best spirits! Viva Italia!
Photographer Cameron Michael Smith is not Italian, but you can still follow him somewhere...
My name is Cameron Smith, this is my studio and farm! We specialize in chicken portraits, cocktails, cannabis and dive bars.. Based in the ATL with frequent trips to Las Vegas and Portland Oregon, we like to city hop! Design, another thing we do at the farm! From photo books to 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 Sin City 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, cats and chickens!
Living the green life in St. Johns North Portland for now, the Smith Farm in Ellijay Georgia in our future??
Follow thy future farm, the journey will be fun!
