My name is Azriel Knight and I am a professional photographer here in Calgary. I have been doing all sorts of work for the past ten years but now I am diving into something new and challenging: Cat Photography!
There’s a reason you don’t see many cat photographers out there. Cats are notoriously hard to photograph. That being said I think I can accomplish the “impossible”.
I’ve been around cats all my life, and of many different temperaments. The two you see photographed on this page are mine: Geordie and Ziggy. Geordie, the light coloured one, is a great example of the easy case: Highly motivated to please, very vocal and friendly. Comes to the door when we have guests, and I’ve even taught him a couple tricks usually reserved for dogs.
Ziggy, the tortie, is the opposite. Twitchy and scared of her own shadow, Barely motivated by treats and runs away at everything.
As you can see I’ve managed to capture great shots of them both, with a little patience.
Cats can have very different personalities even when raised together, like Geordie and Ziggy. It’s my goal, to learn about what motivates and scares your cat, to help bring out the best in them. Dare I say that I am a Cat Whiskerer 🙂
I have created a system to get the best photo possible out of your cat. It starts with a questionnaire, to get to know them. Then an in-home consultation to meet you and your cat(s), as well as ensure there’s enough room for a photography backdrop and lights, and then we set a date!
While I am building my portfolio I’m offering a starter package at half the normal rate I charge for pet photography. A full session with studio lights, high resolution images and an 8x10 print for $75
If you’re interested, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
