Meet Kazmir, the Cat Model
When Kazmir’s mom posted some of the pictures on Reddit, people loved the photos and couldn’t get enough of them. The photoshoot cost the Redditor 175 Canadian dollars, which is roughly 130 US dollars.
Everyone agreed that the photoshoot was worth it, but people also wanted to know who the photographer was.
Meet Sarah Bourque, the Photographer
Sarah enjoyed the photoshoot as Kazmir was a “wonderful model.” She’s also thrilled with the positive response. She met Kazmir and his family at a local park in Canada. The shoot took place on a blustery afternoon in January.
The park was quiet and lovely, which helped with the pictures. Kazmir is used to being outside, and during the shoot, he was in his harness leash. Sarah thought it was good to keep his leash on as the cat would be safe and comfortable so that his personality could shine through.
However, the leash was nowhere to be seen in any of the pictures as Sarah removed it later on.
Sarah Went as Far as Crawling
Usually, cats are natural posers, and Sarah knows that. She would spend a lot of time crawling around or lying in the grass. Her strategy was to let Kazmir find comfy spots and take as many pictures as possible from various angles.
Although Kazmir posed well, this usually lasted a few seconds, so it took a quick hand a professional experience to capture the cat in his best light.
To make the cat look at the camera, Sarah used toys and noisemakers.
