A Cat’s Work is Never Done – “C-AT WORK” by Marianna Zampieri

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.

And we’re in luck! Today, Marianna has been kind enough to share one of her latest projects with us, C-AT WORK, which looks at cats in the workplace. Continue reading “A Cat’s Work is Never Done – “C-AT WORK” by Marianna Zampieri”

Kitty Close-up: Angel in The Netherlands

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.


A Conversation with Angel

What is the shelter like? 
The shelter helps a lot of different animals like cats, dogs, (pet) birds, rabbits, hamsters, etc. The animals can stay at the shelter as long as they need to find a forever home. There is no time limit and Continue reading “Kitty Close-up: Angel in The Netherlands”

Erinn – Shelter Photographer

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.”

Erinn uses an A7 Sony with a 50mm prime lens. She finds that natural light works best for her photos, not flash or LED.

Shelter Life Photography with Lizzy

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.
