Getting That Great Shot Isn't Always Easy

James 1:2

Supreme Grand Champion Blackfoot Agent Six (AKA Tag) refuses to stand.
This is his M.O.

We get an occasional hand or toy in the shot, as is the case to the right with Tag and Wind, and below with RW SGC Special Agent Reconnaissance and Ecko.  Body up, tail down, eyes open, stay in focus, give me that mean, bobcat look, ...

Below, Champion Special Agent Dangerous and Cunning (AKA Dac) supervises Wind from a "hands on" position.  He is always willing to help.


This page is for those who think all of our pictures are perfect and easy. These are typical challenges of the Agent Coordinators trying to get the team on film. It is often a bit of a dance to get that perfect shot.

Shall we tango?

Sometimes it takes more than one person to attend all the needs of a superstar. Every hair in place (yeah, like that happens), position must be perfect and, of course, we must keep the subject happy.

Civilian operative, Lucky Bear, going deep undercover.

Lady  Merryn is too fast and nabs the teaser. Getting a fur toy from the mouth of a Savannah can be quite a task.  Fortunately, Wind is an expert at this assignment.

Dac is always full of antics.  Above, he approaches the teaser from a more stealth angle. You can also see Special Agent Vegas Showgirl in the background making her move.

To the right, Merryn is ready to Tango.  Or perhaps Hokey Pokey.
"...Put your right foot out!"

RW SGC Special Agent Sniper is a wonderful poser, but even he captures the toy on occasion (Look, Elvis!  "Thank you very much!" says Sniper, doing his best Elvis impersonation).  And he always takes a time out to charm the ladies.  A quick hug, and it's back to business.




How many times have you pulled out a digital camera and clicked, and gotten an empty scratching post, a bed without a sleeping kitten, or the tail of your cat chasing the toy you used to try to get their attention?  Well, it happens to everyone.  Look at this typical shot to the left.  I swear, just a moment before this photo was shot, Ruse was up on the pedestal, posing or giving us great action shots!

Kittens are a special challenge as they all have A.D.D., and probably some other initials.

Sniper leans away as Special Agent Captain Jack shows some attitude.  Below, Tag tidies up Special Agent Danny, while Danny tries to exit.

This is the usual total havoc of photographing our young agents. Four of Tag's trainees are practicing war game training exercises, hand to hand combat and tactical maneuvers.

Captain Jack and QGC Special Agent Gunnie are interested in different things.  Can we focus please?  Ecko, you too.


More trouble trying to get very young kittens all facing the same direction.

Captain Jack had a few long sessions.  Below, he has his body on different levels of the logs.

And here, Captain Jack doesn't want to look at the camera. This attempt to focus his attention fails miserably.

To the left, attempts to coerce the subject with food doesn't work either.  Special Agent Ocean just cleans, and cleans, and cleans ...

Also, he has the crease of the furniture and part of a toy behind his head.

Good things come to those who wait. Click here for the results.
