Giveaway! Win a ‘How to Photograph Your Cat’ Gift Box


The How to Photograph Your Cat Gift Box was created by professional photographer, Sarah Loveland, and is aimed at people who want to get more from their digital point-and-shoot or camera phones and capture photos that even their cats will approve of.  Sarah has kindly given five lucky Cool for Cats UK readers the chance to win one of her boxes, and thus acquire millions of social media likes, follows, retweets etc., as their fabulous cat portraits become internationally renowned.  Or maybe just brighten up their Facebook pages with some decent cat pics – one can never post too many cat pics on one’s Facebook page, after all.

(To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment at the end of this post.  Entries must be in before midnight 30th June.)


Each box contains a set of five easy-to-follow lesson cards, which will unravel such mysteries as the exposure compensation setting,  teach you new techniques such as camera tilts and how to snap a cat on the move, and also how to ensure your pics are beautifully composed and well-lit.


Once you can handle your camera like a pro, you can take a look at the fold-out project sheet and have a go at the four tasks Sarah has dreamed up for you and your moggie models.  Plus, if you’re one of those well-organised types who actually gets round to printing their photos, there are four self-assembly cardboard frames and a mini-easel included in the box so that you can display your amazing cat portraits, and then encourage your friends and family to compliment you prolifically on your new-found photographic skills.  Sarah has even included a catnip mouse – cats are notoriously uncooperative after all, but, fortunately, also very receptive when it comes to bribery.

And now for some giveaway rules:

To enter the giveaway please leave a comment at the end of this post.

  1. Very interesting! 🙂

  2. As an aspiring kitty model, I need this in my life!

  3. My cat is so cute but she doesn’t photograph very well being all black, so I’d love this!

  4. Lisa Wilkinson

    Thanks for the great giveaway. This would be really useful 🙂

  5. I would love to win this! I foster cats for Cat Protection, and a good photo does help to ‘promote’ them on the Adopt A Cat page! We’ve actually found that if you don’t show a cat’s face in their photo there is very little interest from potential adoptees.

  6. What a great prize. I have loads of photos of my cats but they never seem to be that good.

    Do the instructions include a section for the cats to read including “do not go and breath on the camera lens as soon as your human get the camera out as it annoys them”.

  7. I’m always taking photos of our 3 cats but they don’t often turn out as well as I’d hope! x

    What a brilliant idea it would be so helpful

  9. What a brilliant idea! My cat Freya tends to look away anytime I try to photograph her and I don’t use the flash so I do wonder if she’s doing the old, “Mustn’t make things too easy for the hoomans” thing, lol. Good luck everyone!

  10. My cat is a big fluffy black one, a complete nutter with ants in his pants who is notoriously hard to photograph! It would be fantastic to get some tips so I capture him in all his fluffy glory 🙂

  20. Rebecca Holton

    My cat and I would love to win this! 🙂

  21. What a fantastic idea – my 2 cats suddenly turn shy when the camera is pointed at them, making it hard to get a good pic. However, they love to photobomb when I’m trying to take a pic of something else!
