Photographer Nils Jacobi, who refers to himself as a “catographer”, offers a diverse and comprehensive view of our beloved furballs through his expanding collection of adorable cat photographs. The pictures in his portfolio range from sophisticated to comical and brilliantly reveal the unique character of each cat. Scroll down to see some of his best work!
Nils Jacobi started taking photos back in 2011 after he graduated in industrial design. Since I preferred to work with cats rather than human models, he became passionate about cat portraits. In his own words: “From a photographic point of view, I am fascinated by cat tongues in particular. Sometimes people send me messages saying they have had cats for years but never saw them that way. You have to be very flexible and cater to the individual needs of every single cat. Some of them are rather shy and don’t enjoy too much attention, others love standing in the center. I love that every photo shoot is different and I’m excited every single time because the best moments happen unexpectedly.”

I love the Siamese. She’s like, “OMG! No! Really? Shut up!”
Photographing cats like this takes talent! Kudos!
I appreciate that you didn’t try to take “cute” photos of our fur babies …these are what we see in them but couldn’t have done what you did, capturing their quirkiness.
When the catnip kicks in.
I’m a dog person, bu these are pretty funny. I like the Siamese one especially.
It’s interesting… Whenever i see a collage of funny dog or cat pictures, where the animal is “forced” to wear a hat or something funny, there is a huge bunch of complaints… But as long as it’s done professionally… You know: in a sterile atmosphere, with intense lighting in front of a uni-colored background,… Then it’s fine… Yeah, cats love those very strong light sources those photographers use…..
There is no art or love in those pictures
The only good cat is a wet cat.
