Hayden Pedersen is a photographer & filmmaker, content creator and local YouTube sensation.

This black cap wearing, lat-flaring creator, from the elite “Eggplant Gang” has reached well over 820,000 subscribers on YouTube and 187,000 followers on Instagram. More importantly, Hayden is completely and utterly focused on the process of creating. 

Along with Liam ( 7th Era ) and Mike ( Northborders ), I know that what they’re creating here locally in Melbourne, is something they’ll collectively be proud of in years to come.
