First let me tell you a bit about me, I’m SteveCarty With over three decades of experience as a professional photographer, I specialize in editorial portraits, streetstyle, and advertising. A Life Behind the Camera is my place to share work that I don’t share anywhere else. Personal work that I am developing, street photography i’m creating for print sales and books, and special projects I’ve yet to think of. Subscribing here allows you to see it first. I’ll be posting more images, and sharing more stories here than anywhere else. I often make BTS video content to go along with the photography and stories that I share here. I’ll include video embeds of making the work I shoot so you would have to chase links.

My mission with this blog is to inspire, guide, and teach aspiring photographers.
