Carty has a modest and straight up approach to making pictures that is understated, modern and honest. Reflecting the attitude of the moment, he creates powerful undertones, which are never overstylized, but always iconic. At his best he is a photographer who connects with his subject quickly and produces quickly. A relationship founded first, in moments, finding that essential common ground and comfort. From them, he is able to capture remarkably personable and raw moments of beauty and depth of truth. It is a straight-up, human approach, underpinned with confidence by the artist’s sound technical ability. Always evolving with technology, Carty consistently tries to find new ways to incorporate the latest innovations into his work, most recently directing shorts, fashion films and music videos.

Highlights of his published works include features in prominent magazines such as; Wired (Germany), NUVO, Adformatie (Amsterdam), Naked Eye, ELLE Canada, InTouch Weekly, Vervegirl, Girlfriend (US & New Zealand) and many more. His exceptional approach to subjects include client work with HP, Nike, MTV / MuchMusic, D&AD, Canada Goose, SportingLife and Autoshare, just to name a few. Carty currently is based in Toronto and works throughout Canada, with stops in London, UK and New York. In 2009 released his first book, “Positives” and was selected to be published in Carte Blanche, the first book of Canadian Contemporary Photographers, available everywhere.
