"I am a photographer, a capturer of events large and small, moments ordinary and extraordinary. I capture images with a camera but I create art with my mind and heart."
I photograph a variety of subjects, from nature and landscapes to wildlife and birds, but a favorite part of my business is creating portraits of beautiful cats.
They've lived with us for thousands of years, yet they still captivate and amaze us. And for a little while, when capturing a portrait, I have the opportunity to see the personality they choose to share as I try to get the perfect image.
Every cat I photograph is unique, with a charisma all his or her own. Our portrait sessions focus on the elegance, style, and humor that make these marvelous and mysterious animals so fascinating. Our goal is to capture their unique look and personality.
I’m fortunate to have the world’s best cat wrangler, my wife, Pat. She connects with cats and they bond with her. She gets them to show their personalities and makes it possible for me to capture extraordinary and compelling images. Without her work, what I do would not be possible.
I have the easy part – I just roll around in my chair and operate the camera.
When not doing portraits at a show, I like to wander the show hall, watching the judging, visiting with the exhibitors and capturing candid images of people and cats.
If you would like to see more of the amazing cats I’ve been privileged to photograph, stop by my website at www.dperezphoto.com and check out the CFA and ACFA Cat Shows. And if you know of a cat show that would like a photographer that does what we do, have them contact me.
