I am Cody Schultz, a landscape photographer who specializes in creating beautiful works of art in tones of gray. While I had originally began my journey into the realm of photography by creating portrait and fashion work, I found myself burnt out. My stress levels were higher than ever and having been in only 10th grade at the time, I could not handle it any longer. In the summer of 2016, I found Thomas Heaton’s YouTube channel and was immediately hooked: I was going to be a landscape photographer. And as if that was not difficult enough of a field to stick out in, I decided as a New Year’s Resolution for 2017 that my portfolio would be strictly black and white, at least for that year. Now, I am simply hoping to make a name for myself in a world full of nobodies.
