You may recall that I introduced you to amateur photographer Marianna Zampieri in two previous posts. In the first post, we learned how Marianna’s own cat, Arthur, helped her discover her love of photography. In the second post, we saw Marianna’s Passions photography project, where she captures the relationship between cats and the people they live with.
If you haven’t read those posts, I encourage you to do so, as Marianna’s gorgeous photography will surely speak to any cat lover.
Marjan Debevere, an amateur photographer, has lived in London, England for the past 23 years, but she is originally from Bruges, Belgium. When not taking beautiful photos of shelter cats, Marjan studies Feline Behaviour and Psychology.
During her time with Miss Kitty, Lindsi started a photographic series called Cats in Bow Ties, with the goal of photographing 101 cats modeling bow ties in an effort to raise awareness for adoptions and also show how beautiful cats truly are. All cats in the series are either current residents, former residents, or fellow kitty supporters of the Miss Kitty Feline Sanctuary.
Marianna is an amateur photographer in Vicenza, Italy who has a passion for both cats and photography (a catographer!). An office employee by day, Marianna enjoys photographing her feline friends and she also started a Facebook page to help stray cats find their forever homes.
Angel volunteers at her local animal shelter in The Netherlands and takes beautiful pictures of the cats and kittens who are waiting for their forever homes. She takes several pictures of each cat and selects her favorite two or three shots. Angel then gives those pictures to the shelter and they can choose which one to use for their database and website. She photographs two to three times a week at the shelter.
Erinn R. volunteers and takes photos at Adams County Animal Shelter located in Commerce City, Colorado. The government-owned shelter covers seven counties north of Denver. Erinn says, “It is an older shelter on the far side of town that doesn’t get as much foot traffic. I take photos in hopes to bring more people in to visit the cats and dogs.”
Fellow blogger, Lizzy, photographs cats and dogs at an open-admission shelter in a small town in rural Massachusetts. She is the Humane Educator at the shelter. “I always joke that children and animals are the best. It is the human adults that are so difficult to understand.” Lizzy photographs almost daily at the shelter and organizes a lot of the marketing materials for animals, special events, and promotions. “If it is a sunny day, I just photograph to capture any kind of cuteness that I can.”
From her blog Shelter Life Photography: I have been working in the animal sheltering world for 3+ years and have found the most amazing inspiration. Every day I photograph homeless animals in search of love and companionship. I am so happy to share these images and hope they inspire other photographers to donate their time at their local animal shelter.
To continue with Photo Fun Friday – why not showcase a real photographer and her photos?
