Olympic Cats Featured in InTouch Magazine

As you may remember, our Olympic cats pridefully celebrate their victories on the podium. Our photograph was featured on page 64 of the August 27th issue of InTouch Magazine! Just as the cats are super excited, so are we!

“The caption reads: “Inspired by Olympian Gabby Douglas, rescue cat Riplee, 2, raises his arms to celebrate his win over Pippi and Bonnie. The feline friends owned and photographed by Linda Bohm of Montclair, N.J., re-created this gymnastics ceremony by proudly posing in front of the famous rings.

(**Should read photographed by Linda Bohm and Gerry Marrazzo of Bohm-Marrazzo Photography**).

So in case you happened to see this as you were flipping through your copy of InTouch Magazine, that’s why it looked so familiar. 🙂

Autumn is creeping up on us…

The summer is slowly creeping to an end, and fall is sneaking on in. It’s starting to get a little colder at night. There are a few fallen leaves scattered here and there as the wind gusts through the trees. You’re favorite pumpkin spice coffee drink has reappeared on the menus. The season is changing and Autumn is right around the corner.

Autumn, the ever-sneaky season always finds a way of inching it’s way in when summer is still on everyone’s minds. So why not sneak up on Autumn? Start gathering your school books and pulling out your fall jackets because before you know it, you’ll be needing them!

Happy sneaking. 🙂

It’s All About ATTITUDE

Winston Churchill once said, “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” Winston was right, in more than one way! Attitude is important not only in how you live your life, but also in how you take someone’s portrait. The attitude of your subject plays a major role in the over all atmosphere of the image. Therefore it is of dire importance to capture your subject in such a way that their attitude shines through.

The attitude that you catch your subject in also depends on the mood you are trying to convey with your photograph. Timing is everything. Catching that one facial expression, be it smile or scowl, is what makes the picture.

However, this doesn’t just go for portraits of people. Animals have attitudes, too!
Those of which Linda Bohm and Gerry Marrazzo are unparalleled in capturing.
As you can see, the expression caught on Pippi’s face shows her fierce “CAT-itude!”

Remember, attitude is everything!

Cat Expo Major Success!

Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Garden State Cat Club’s Cat Expo this weekend! The event was a booming success, up in attendance by 40% from last year!

 We had so much fun at the expo! There were cats in cars,  face painting, and lots of vendors.
There were some adorable cats to be adopted and a cat agility event in which our very own Pippi participated in.

It’s all in the Family

Whether you’re shooting human siblings, or a clowder of cats – always be expecting the unexpected!

On any given day, family members may be lovers or haters to one another – when shooting, you should always be ready to distract them from one another!

For this specific shoot, we were told to have these kittens playing lovingly with their grandfather and great-grandfather!  There are a few ways to get this done…

1. Food, food, food!  Kiddies to Kittens, we’re all suckers for food!

2. Lots of helpful hands! These kittens, much like toddlers like to roam – be prepared to play catch!

3. Rewards! Catnip and more food (or toys, for the humans!) always  give you enough time to catch your breath!

Happy Shooting!
