This year I had the pleasure of photographing and re-designing the 2013 calendar for the Wellington Cat’s Protection League. If you don’t know about this non-profit organisation, I invite you to take a look at their website and learn about them. They have been operating for 30 years and they do more than a magnificent job helping and re-homing abandoned cats. They even have a de-sexing program where they provide a significantly discounted price to have your cat de-sexed. Wellington Cats Protection League is run solely by volunteers and relies on funding from public donations, fundraising activities, and their members.
I was delighted when Lesley, the fundraising coordinator, asked me to re-design the calendar and photograph some of the cats. All the images were taken at the shelter, and the text on each calendar page and on each image page was provided by Megan and Lesley. All the photographs couldn’t have been done without the help of Katrina, Yolanda, Eric, Lois and Margaret. The biggest thanks is reserved for Lorraine who spent many hours with me and the cats so I could get just the right images. And, of course, thanks to all the cats who were magnificent models for the calendar!
Please visit CPL’s website, and you can help the cats purchasing one or more 2013 calendar (only $15 + postage!) http://www.cpl-wellington.org.nz/node/add/order
The slideshow above shows just the big images from the calendar, and not the actual calendar pages (which also have images of some of the volunteers and their furry friends). More images of adorable kitties (and doggies) can be found on my pet photography page.
