Denver Cat Photographer
Professional cat photographer might sound like an oxymoron but you’d be surprised how doable a cat photoshoot is! I’ll use lenses that enable me to be far away from your cat so they barely even notice me. If your kitty is a diva, they need their own personal paparazzi, right?
How do you get cats to pose?
The trick is to get them to think it’s their idea! I usually try a combination of patience and playing off their natural curiosity.
When I arrive for your photo shoot, I’ll let your cats sniff my camera gear and greet me as I set up. Your cat might watch me from afar for the first 10 minutes, to see if I can be trusted. (I can.) All this trust-building pays off later when I’m able to get them to look directly at the camera for their close-ups.
What if my cat is shy?
I’m very patient with shy cats. Sometimes we have to wait for everyone to feel comfortable with me and my equipment. Animal photography can be like being on safari and waiting for a lion to come to the watering hole – only it’s your domestic kitty. Don’t worry if your cat hides under the bed the whole time. If that happens, I’ll come back at no charge.
If you’re a cat lover, you already have a million cat photos on your phone. Why hire a cat photographer? For starters, my professional camera gear enables me to get high-resolution images that are worthy of enlarging and framing. Most importantly, I will see your cat through an artist’s eye. I’ll apply my artistry to capture your family cat’s personality. Once you see the results, you’ll be smiling like a Cheshire Cat!

Cat photography that captures the essence of your furry feline friends.
