Unlike his namesake this cat has none of this hero’s attributes. He is terrified of “The great Outdoors” and spends most of his time inside playing with his toys, sleeping and being pampered shamefully. Afternoons you will see him sitting bravely on the doorstep waiting for his friend and owner Moritz to return from school whom he faithfully follows everywhere. HIs parents commissioned me to do this portrait for his 18th Birthday. It was a tough assignment to photograph a black cat, in a dark room away from daylight.
They were very delighted with this composite result.
