2012... seems like ages ago. Downtown Grand was still the closed down Lady Luck. Hogs and Heifers Saloon was only celebrating it's 7th year of business in Las Vegas. Shit, the original Hogs location in New York was open with no end in site. I was even still living in Vegas, the greener pastures of the Pacific Northwest where a couple of months away for me. At this point, I thought my 7 year photo project with H&H was coming to a close. Trips to Sin City weren't in my future, at the time I was burnt out on the strip. So how would I continue covering the saloon and their big events when I was living 1000 miles away? Surprisingly, it was at this point I started to work more with Michelle and the H&H crew. During my tenure in Vegas, I was always busy working for other studios and didn't put much time into my own freelance projects. Once I left for Portland, I was officially a freelancer and could put effort into anything I wanted. That meant more days open to cover Las Vegas BikeFest and other larger events Hogs was putting on. That sounds like a fun photo job to me. There aren't many photographers in the world who can say they have a client quite like Hogs and Heifers, let this fuckin' journey continue!
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!
