Pamper your puss
1 Know their needs
If you’re encouraging the cats with treats, be aware of their diet – especially when photographing other people’s pets. Some cats also have illnesses, so be sensitive to their limits; having flashguns around cats with epilepsy is of course a no-go…
2 Take regular breaks
You can’t shoot for six hours straight with animals. Be aware of their stress levels and attentiveness, as what must always come first is their welfare, not the photograph. Take breaks to cuddle the cats, to let them explore their environment stress-free, and to rest.
