As an artist, Carty, as he likes to be known, is always evolving and trying to find new ways to incorporate the latest tech innovations into his work. Evidence of that spirit can be seen in Steve Carty’s latest work, MULTIPLICITY, in which he experiments with stroboscopic effects and freezing multi-actions in a single frame.
Steve Carty’s Multiplicity Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival gallery will be on display at Vistek Toronto through the month of May.
Join us for the opening reception and meet photographer Steve Carty on May 2 from 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. During the opening reception, Steve will give a brief demonstration his ‘5-Minute Portrait’ method of shooting.

Coincidentally, the title “Multiplicity” also accurately describes the multi-talented Steve Carty. Along with his stills work, which takes him all over North America, UK, Europe and Central America, Steve has expanded his portfolio to include filmmaking, directing shorts, fashion films and music videos. You’ll see examples of Steve’s portfolio in such prominent magazines such as Wired (Germany), NUVO, Adformatie (Amsterdam), Naked Eye, ELLE Canada, InTouch Weekly, Vervegirl, Girlfriend (US & New Zealand) to name a few.
And because Steve is a photographer who connects with his subject quickly and produces quickly, he has cemented exciting working relationships with Corus Entertainment, HP, Nike, MTV / MuchMusic, D&AD, Canada Goose, SportingLife, Autoshare and YNOT Cycle, among others.
About Steve Carty
“Carty has a modest and straight up approach to making pictures that are understated, modern and honest. Reflecting the attitude of the moment, he creates powerful undertones, which are never over stylized, 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.
