Was Las Vegas ready for a place like Hogs & Heifers Saloon?
The doors officially opened in September of 2005. If I'm typing this in prep for their 12th anniversary bash in '17, the answer is yes!
After the soft opening and decoration party, what would Hogs be like on the official opening night? I was super excited to find out and couldn't wait to get back with my camera in hand. The energy that experienced on my first assignment with the bar was contagious. I've never seen bartenders dance and entertain like that. Even in an entertainment driven destination like Las Vegas, what H&H was doing was fresh as fuck.
Thank you Hogs and Heifers for bringin' a true party to Sin City. After the introduction of mega clubs to the strip in the early 2000's, Hogs was just what the doctor ordered!
Self proclaimed world's best dive bar photographer. Fuck You, I drink at Hogs!
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!
