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.
Highlights of his works include campaigns for: the Great Canadian Baking Show for Netflix, the Block for CBC, Strombo for Apple Music, as well as features in prominent magazines such as; Wired (Germany), Barron’s, NUVO, Adformatie (Amsterdam), RealStyle Network, Naked Eye, ELLE Canada, InTouch Weekly, Vervegirl, Girlfriend (US & New Zealand) and many more. His exceptional approach to subjects include client work with; Apple , Proper Television, CBC, Starbucks Canada, Chronixx Apparel, eCampus Ontario, Royal Canadian Laboratories, Corus Entertainment, W Network, HP (Hewlett-Packard), Nike, MTV / MuchMusic, DHL Express, Canon Canada, Nottinblu Luxury Beds, D&AD, Canada Goose, SportingLife, and Air Canada just to name a few.
