It's hard to put into words how special bike week with Hogs & Heifers Saloon was for me as a photographer. Looking back and understanding that our event, Rally in the Alley, was the first outdoor gathering in Las Vegas after October 1st 2017 is pretty deep and something I'll never forget. The rally in Vegas is always sweet to photograph, but perhaps a touch bitter this time around considering what just happened. Who wants to be the annoying photo guy in everyone's face asking for smiles when people could still be mourning?
Once the Wednesday anniversary party with Hogs kicked off the festivities, I was timid in taking pictures at first. It took awhile to get back into the grove. Sometimes even photographers need to take a step back and soak things in without pressing buttons on his camera. Now that I've had a chance to comb through thousands of images that I captured from the event, I know how important it is for places like Hogs and Heifers to be there as a spot for friends and family to gather. A spot to come together for the good times and bad.
Thank you to my #HogsLife clan for helping put some smiles on our faces this week :)
noremaC is Cameron spelled backwards, isn't that a clever name for a studio?
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??
