Raymond, our Oriental x domestic shorthair, embodying why cats can be considered the perfect hunting ‘machine’.

From the loose limbed stalk to the concentrated gaze, to a small prey creature he just oozes menace.

From Animal Planet :
“Design a “dream machine” for hunting and you’d come up with something very close to a cat. From the smallest domestic to the biggest “king of the jungle,” felines are gifted in all the bodily tools and techniques needed to chase prey in the wild or toys in the living room: speed, athleticism and the killer instinct."

EOS30D & 70-200 f4 L

Very honoured to have had Mr Raymond featured in *DOGGIE & KITTY PARADISE* on 23 April 2011

In the late 1970s I completed the 2 years of a 4 yr Professional Photography Cert at TAFE, but was defeated by the physics of lenses.
In 2004 I bought my first DSLR & now shoot full time with medium format digital and professional Canon DSLRs.
I provide tuition to small groups via photography workshops for small groups (max 5) and Photoshop PP classes, and conduct small group photography tours to Australian & (soon) NZ destinations.
