Everyday Heroes: The story of Joseph and Scruffy.

 

Once upon a time there was a dog loving guy called Joseph. He lived with someone who had a cat and his cat turned him into a cat lover. When he got a place of his own, he decided that he wanted a furry friend as a house mate. Instead of going and buying a kitten, he made a conscious decision to get the cat that had stayed the longest at the shelter near where he lived. This is how Scruffy came into his life and this is the story of their first few weeks together.

So excited to announce that I have just took out first place in the Pet category at the prestigious WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) First Half Awards.

WPPI awards receive hundreds of entries each year, so it was an incredible honour to win first place in the Pet Category.

The inspiration for the quirky cat portrait was inspired by famous authors throughout history. This idea was originally designed for a sphynx named Oodat. You can check out that shoot here https://youtu.be/UOenWikXTvE

 

Authors are known for being cat lovers and cats have inspired and influenced some of our greatest authors like Ernest Hemingway, T.S Eliot and Mark Twain.

The used books by these authors in the award-winning photograph really reflect the nature and adventurous spirit of my Abyssinian cat. Family reunion, because she is the half sister of our other Abyssinians, Derrick Bennett and Leon. Top sawyer by Mark Twain has a main character that seemed to mostly enjoy getting into trouble and finding adventures, very much like the nature of the Abyssinian cat. The sun also rises by Hemingway is to do with her name Artemis. She was the daughter of Zeus who gave her 10 wishes, one was to be the light bringer! Cats are renown to be incredibly smart and in the human world that means research and knowledge, so the library background adds to this symbolism.

The books were all bought on a trip to America in 2019. They were bought specifically for this shoot and I needed the right colour palette as well as well worn books.

I was trying to decide if I should put in the photograph of Oodat or Artemis. I decided on Artemis because I have already won many awards with sphinx cats. So it is with much gratitude to Oodat that I have this prestigious award.

I now plan to do a series of images in this background of a number of different breeds to create a nice collection of them. Not sure what I will do with the collection when I am finished but I am sure I will come up with something.

I recently did an interview with Ron from thepetcalmer.com about PetTunes. It was really interesting to get to understand how cats hear and respond to sound. We were talking after the interview and Ron was telling me about this mother cat and her kittens who were experiencing a stressful birthing process.

The veterinarian monitoring the birth allowed a Pet Tunes Feline be placed nearby playing special cat music.

Mother cat calmed down within minutes and the kittens were able to enter this world more easily and in good condition.

The reason the birth went from stressful to calm was due to the mother cat naturally relaxing allowing nature do its thing.

 

We have found the same with using this product. I was surprised at just how quickly it works and what a difference it makes. I only share what i find works and is a great product. I also love the science behind why it works.
