Beauty Of One Of The World’s Largest Domestic Cat Breeds In Majestic Photos
By Yoon Sann Wong, 15 Aug 2016
Polish animal photographer Robert Sijka first began capturing cat portraits when his wife began breeding Maine Coon cats–one of the largest domestic breeds in the world.
These majestic felines are what inspired Sijka to pick up the camera. He explained to Cat Behaviourist, “…how to present our cats to the world? I think my journey with photography started at this moment. There was only one answer to the question, I needed to learn photography.”
Sijka’s models come from his Maine Coon cattery in China, where he and his family are based.
The photographer attributes patience as a key factor behind his images because getting the cats’ attention isn’t easy.
“…I use dark and simple backgrounds to direct all attention to the cat…I love their eyes and emotions which flow from them.”
Discover photos of Sijka’s Maine Coons below and see more over on his Instagram account ‘robert_sijka’ and Facebook page. Sijka’s photos are also available as prints.
