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!
