The ONE Person Business Model for Photographers.

Breaking into the photography market starts with a clear understanding of your audience and niche. Whether it’s fashion, editorial portraits, sports, or wedding photography, each area has unique trends, client expectations, and market demands.

Remember, every iconic photographer you admire started at the start.

This is the creator economy. Prepare for a paradigm shift. People that aren’t as smart as you have learned at way to escape the 9-5 trap of exchanging time for money and have learned how to exhange value for money.

If you want to learn how to survive this new creator economy, this is for you.

HEY.

I'm Steve Carty

I've been a working Pro shooter for 33 years.

‚ě°ÔłŹ I shot some of the earliest magazine photos of celebs like Pharrell Williams, Thom Yorke & Kanye West.¬†

‚ě°ÔłŹ I've had the pleasure of photographing actors like Colin Firth, Sandra Oh, Michael Sheen and so many more.

‚ě°ÔłŹ I create principal photography for everything from magazine editorial to major television series promo to advertising campaigns that span major brands to educational institutions.¬†

‚ě°ÔłŹ In 2014, I signed a 2yr deal with Canon Canada becoming their first brand ambassador.

‚ě°ÔłŹ I've lectured creatives and photographers for Adobe, Canon, DHL, Profusion Expo as well as numerous Photography Schools and Universities.

Over the past 25 years of mentoring shooters, I’ve helped hundreds of photographers in person and thousands of photographers on YouTube, level up their photography, find their niche, get their first jobs and some have scaled up to over $100k per year at this profession.

The Carty Method.

"The future photographer isn't just a photographer at all. They have mastered the evergreen skills to bridge the gap to becoming a content creator. An idea generator. A storyteller, A specialist in idea execution. One that brings value to every table they attend."

Michael Stimatze

"I came across Carty while randomly scrolling YouTube one evening. I was looking for photography advice.

I joined his masterclass hoping to hone my skills and maybe start making a little side money with my camera.

I never thought of being a full time professional photographer. Now I don’t just think it is possible, I know it is likely. Following the Carty Method will make that happen. So I took the leap and set up my photography business . I'm officially registered."

Selim El Madani

"Doing sessions with Carty is like having a personal art director judging you but the beauty of these 1 on 1 sessions is that you don't receive a negative answer, you get tailored advice to reach new highs so that when you're ready to show your work to art directors, your work is top level. 

After my session with Carty, I had personalized guidance and things to look for in my photography to improve immediately."

 

 

Ana Krachkovskaya

"Carty is an exceptionally generous and insightful coach. His photo reviews are incredibly detailed and thorough, providing valuable feedback for improvement.

Moreover, Carty generously shares his personal experience and extensive knowledge of running a photography business, enriching the learning experience.

Being a part of Carty's Discord channel, as well as participating in his mentorship and masterclass, has been immensely beneficial and inspiring."
