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??
