About Ty Stedman
Born in Natal, South Africa, Ty became enamoured with the natural world from an early age. His enthusiasm for exploration, attention to detail and education in the sciences, ultimately kindled a passion for photography where he is able to document and share the intricacies of the world.
With a formal education in the Sciences from the University of Western Australia, Ty’s skills in analysis and observation have cultivated an interest in documenting the planet’s intricate details from the vantage point of small aircraft.
In 2018, Ty was accepted into the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) as an Accredited Member, and in the same year earned the Associate designation with both the AIPP and New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography (NZIPP) through their respective awards systems.
Ty was recently awarded the winner of 2018 IPA Professional Winter Sports sub-category for his Southern Wonderland series shot in New Zealand in 2017, and runner-up of the 2018 IPA Professional Fine Art : Abstract sub-category for his image, ‘Stitching Fillets’.
His most recent aerial work concentrates on the natural and altered landscapes of regional Australia and remote parts of the world, with a focus on abstract forms, simplicity, colour and texture to communicate the beauty and detail that escapes the conventional view.
Alongside producing his fine art pieces, Ty has a passion for educating other photographers through his involvement in workshops and photography tours in Australia and overseas.
Ty currently resides in the picturesque South West region of Western Australia with his wife and three ‘spirited’ young children who are his inspiration and driving force.
