In 2002, Jared founded Bauman Photographers, a well known Southern California photography studio specializing in high end weddings and corporate headshots.

Jared lives in San Diego, California with his wife Sara and their daughter, Felicity and son, Josiah. A good cappuccino and the Wall Street Journal are his perfect morning, a hike through a national park is his perfect afternoon, and a small gathering of friends and a (big) sip of Bourbon are his perfect evening.
