After practicing law briefly in Boston, Cameron returned to Canada and went to Queen's University in Kingston. He spent much of his spare time writing poetry. He became editor of the Kingston News in 1882. Some of Cameron's poems have been published in a book entitled Lyrics on Freedom, Love and Death which was edited by his brother, Charles J. Cameron and published posthumously in 1887.
