In his wonderful feline series, photographer Robert Sijka has captured the absolute elegance, beauty and distinguished playfulness of Maine Coons, the fluffy cats whose very solemn demeanors often betrays the gregarious personalities inside all of that fur. Sijka started photographing these gorgeous cats when his wife began breeding Maine Coons.
My passion is photography and animals. Especially cats, they fascinate me the most, they are mysterious and dignified. My journey with cats photography began few years ago when my wife started to breed Maine Coons. Being around the cats and photographing them gives me a lot of joy. I spent a lot of time perfecting my skills in capturing the beauty of cats. My goal is to show different expressions and emotions flowing from the cat’s eyes. I prefer to use a simple background and light setting which complements the cat, nothing else.
