Cody Schultz

Cody Schultz is a Pennsylvania-based nature photographer and a creative writer. His journey into photography started back in 2014 as a way to cope with anxiety and depression. At the time, he enjoyed photographing any and all subjects and had an interest in pursuing fashion photography.

However, in 2017, he started spending more time in nature and appreciating its benefits on his mental health, and he started focusing more specifically on nature photography. As a way to expand his photography skills, he challenged himself to photograph exclusively in black and white for a year and was immediately hooked.

In 2019, Cody purchased his first large format film camera and now shoots exclusively with a Chamonix 45F-2 camera and a single prime lens.
