— About me, social media, and how to get in touch
Cody Stallings is a Freelance Portrait Photographer currently residing in Nashville, Tennessee.
I’ve found much joy in creating art since a young age. I would draw, sculpt and paint and you can guarantee that everywhere I went, I came equipped with my art supplies. But it was not until December of 2012 that I picked up my first camera and fell in love with photography and creative direction.
I moved to Nashville, Tennessee in May of 2012 aimlessly figuring out what I wanted to do with life. I enrolled in the Art Institute of Tennessee, Nashville’s Videography degree program (at the time I think I wanted work on films) and after 6 months in the program things just weren’t clicking. I had made friends with a few of the Photography students and helped to assist on some shoots and thought to myself, “Hey. This is way more your speed!” And thus my future had been realized.
Fast forward 2.5 years and I have earned my bachelors in Photographic Imaging and was named ‘Best in Show’ of the 2015 Summer graduating class! I went on to compete in the 2016 Student Addy Awards where my ‘Sweets & Treats’ photo series made it’s way to the National Division of the competition! Winning the Addy’s led me to landing an internship at Fox Fuel Creative Branding Agency which then led to a job as the photographer and social media content creator for Play Dance Bar, Tribe and Suzy Wong’s House of Yum!
I was always scared of being “that kid” who went to Art School and ended up failing to use their hard earned degree but… Fast forward to the present and I’ve managed to make a successful name for myself in Nashville’s ever growing photography scene! I can honestly say I’ve done a lot and there is still so much I want to do! In the past 3 years, I’ve worked in social media content creation, nightlife photography, and have worked with numerous musicians, designers, publications and even a handful of Drag Queens along the way!
Today I work for myself as a freelance Photographer and Creative Director producing content for a variety of clients. When we work together, my ultimate goal is to create cool, personality filled, colorful and creative content that appeals to people from all walks of life to enjoy and talk about. Now that you know my story, it’s your turn to tell me yours! Let’s meet for coffee or a drink and chat about what we can do for you and your brand!
