Portland-based photographer Carli Davidson is known for her previous projects Shake series, which started with adult dogs portraits shaking themselves and then moved on to little puppies. This time, for her new project titled Shake Cats, Davidson captures small felines.
Expept from an amazing photographer, Davidson is also an animal rights activist who found most of her cute models from local animal rescues. After shooting a nice head shot of each cat for the shelter website — which helped them get adopted almost immediately — Davidson gave the cats a grooming session with nail trimmings and ear cleanings, after which the cats would usually shake themselves. If that didn’t work, a few drops of water usually would make the trick. Her portraits are just adorable:
Davidson has shot nearly 100 cats so far for the Shake Cats project. She’s publishing around 140 of them in her new book that’s coming out on October 27th, 2015.
