The Internet has helped spread the popularity of cat videos but long before videos took over the world, people enjoyed pictures of cats. Photographer Larry Johnson prides himself on capturing the idiosyncratic essence of people’s cats. “I like getting intimate with the cats. I like their personalities.”

Johnson captures pictures of cats at major cat shows. “Cats do their own thing, so you have to get them to do their own thing with you,” he says. “You have to take their mind off of what else is going on, and then they’ll relax.”

If you adore cats, then you’ll likely love pictures of cats as well. To learn more about Larry Johnson as a cat photographer, click here.
