Animal Photography: Cat Portraits by Rob Bahou

Amsterdam based photographer Rob Bahou specializes in a variety of photography subjects but the cat portraits in particular caught my eye. In his bio Rob says; "I don't think that animals understand what a camera is, so when they look into a lens, they are not conscious of their appearance. As a result, they don't adjust their expression, posture or body language, they just are what they are." I couldn't agree with him more, so much personality is shown in each portrait. Rob hopes to publish a book in the future, so be sure to keep an eye on his website!

Cat Portraits

Why animals? Other than the fact that I grew up with them, and have a profound fascination with what goes on in their psyches, I believe that capturing a faithful, telling portrait of them is surprisingly easy.
