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, 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!
