Me-Yow!

Trying to decide which image of your cat to share on the giant screen at CHS Field during the Walker Art Center’s 2015 Internet Cat Video Festival?

How exactly does one get Maggie May or Seaman Jack (made up cat names) to even pose for an image? What are the secrets to capturing your cat’s most evocative and delightful moments?

Meet master cat photographer, Walter Chandoha. Walter has been photographing our friend the feline for nearly 60 years. His images are said to be the inspiration behind Andy Warhol’s 1954 book, 25 Cats Name Sam and One Blue Pussy. (The title of the book, minus the d, was given by Warhol’s mother).

In this New York Times interview, Walter highlights some of his techniques and best moments from cat photography.

Inspire us, Master Cat Photographer Walter Chandoha!

Now, it’s your turn! INSPIRE US WITH YOUR CAT PHOTOGRAPHY!

We want to see your cat on the BIG SCREEN at CHS Field!

Follow the link above to upload a photo of your feline friend(s) and we’ll share it on the big screen at CHS Field at the 2015 Internet Cat Video Festival on Wednesday, August 12.
