For the past 10 years, Jarred Stedmanhas had the privilege of being a full time photographer. His first global publication was in 2008 for a Hillsong CD cover.
Whilst being the marketing creative director for the Parramatta Eels, assisted some of Australia’s most respected portrait photographers, and shooting his own editorials, he acknowledges that there is no ‘I’ in team, hence the inception of STED & CO. Without the talents of the makeup artists, the hair stylists, the models and the fashion stylists, there are not beautiful images or videos to be shared.
In the past 5 years, Jarred has found himself not only thriving in Sydney photographic community, but has also discovered a untapped talent in creating unique short films. Working primarily in the fashion and hair industry, this venture has taken him not only Australia wide, but also across the globe. Working in Asia, South Africa, America, Paris and London with teams of footballers, charities, and hairdressers. Being an award finalist in AHFA’s and AIPPs competitions for the past 2 years has also been an honour for him.
More important then creating the best collection or most emotive film, his drive comes from a place of telling others humans stories and enabling them to be heard.
