When people consider pet photography, they tend to think of the dog first and forget about the cat thinking it an impossible task. Hopefully these photos will prove them wrong!
We have a lovely lady who we first met last summer when she began breeding Burmese kittens, and has decided to come to us regularly for a new photoshoot for every litter her cat has. The latest was a really cute litter of six. It was a crazy hour or so in the studio with kittens running rampant and all hands to the deck – including those of our bookkeeper! One of the best setups we find is to line them up on a fairly high plank to try and deter them from jumping off (although this doesn’t always work!) and then catch their attention with cat toys. It often means photographing two or three cats at a time and then cleverly stitching them together in Photoshop later. We think it’s a great idea and once all the kittens are sold she will have a stunning wall piece to remember them by.
In general cats can be quite timid creatures and if yours is one of those then don’t be put off! For cat photography we can always shoot on location and come to your house so that they can stay in their familiar surroundings, so don’t worry about being limited to the studio. As you can see below we can get gorgeous photos of your cat both in and out of the studio, as long as they feel at ease.
