Matt Payne Photography Blog: Overcoming Mental Health In Landscape Photography - A Conversation With Cody Schultz

September 22, 2021  |  Pennsylvania

Welcome to episode 231 of F-Stop Collaborate and Listen!

This week on the podcast I was joined by Cody Schultz, a black and white landscape photographer living in Pennsylvania who has chosen to work in the medium of film.

Cody and I talked a lot about the impact of social media and other factors on our mental health and how we can use our work to overcome these challenges. On today's podcast we covered a wide array of topics that you'll hopefully enjoy.

We discuss:

  • Social media and mental health,
  • Knowing when it feels right to make the image,
  • Pursuit of what's important to us as photographers,
  • The medium of Black and White photography,
  • And a lot more!

Here's who Cody recommended for the podcast this week:
