My name is Cody Rheault and I am a storyteller. I achieve that through the medium of filmmaking, photography, and writing.

I believe storytelling is vital whether you are promoting a business, profiling people, or shooting a magazine feature. Creating imagery is part of that process. The art of storytelling through the knowledge of interacting with people and shaping images to evoke the character of a person, place, or thing is a process I strive to implement in all my work. 

 

My experiences vary but everything points to the desire to tell stories. Currently, I am a freelance correspondent with the weekly Nugget Newspaper in Sisters, Oregon. For 7 years I have covered small-town events and human interest stories as a contributing writer and photojournalist. 

 

I am also a former member of the American Warriors Youtube series profiling veterans and telling their stories through documentary filmmaking. Prior to that, a 3-year stint as a former member of Central Oregon Daily News where I was a contributing producer, filmmaker, and editor with the task of producing stories for TV broadcast. There I independently produced the weekly segment War Stories - honoring local veterans and their military service through short documentaries telling their life stories, and filmed and edited the Oregon travel series Destination Oregon which took our small team around the state on over 150 travel features. 

I live in Sisters, Oregon with my family where I own and operate my independent media business. Ultimately, I aspire to tell stories locally and abroad while shedding light on people and places that inform and inspire.
