    Cameron works at Simms and was born & raised in good ol' Bozeman Montana. He is a fifth generation Montanan with roots spreading out to the eastern reaches of the state. Like many born or raised here, he spent his entire childhood outdoors. His love for adventure still burns fierce, and so out on the water, or in the forest, is where you will find him. It wasn't long before he started to develop a passion for getting the shot and thus spawned his passion for great photography.
