Simon’s Cat looking over a beautiful Yorkshire landscape.
“Here is Simon’s Cat propped up with a cardboard stand on a dry stone wall, in my sister’s garden in Huddersfield. I thought this was typically British countryside scene and a perfect misty day. Just after this shoot, my sister’s new puppy grabbed our character by the tail… and he wasn’t quite the same again after that.”

Simon’s Cat wanting Fish & Chips in Brighton. 
“I propped him up with a cardboard stand and moved the fish & chips just into shot. I liked the tomato and mustard bottles in the background, the bright seafront lights and the reflections on the shiny red table top.”

Top tip: “Try different angles to capture interesting reflections, especially when photographing at night or into a window.”

Simon’s Cat sightseeing under a statue of Sir Winston Churchill in London, UK.
“Although I attached a cardboard stand to the character, my friend also had to hold him still until the very last minute and then quickly move his hand out of the frame. Churchill is mostly associated with dogs, but apparently also owned many cats - I like that they’re both looking away from the camera in the same direction.”

Top tip: “It is helpful to have a patient friend with you, to help you to position your character whilst you concentrate on composing your image. Try positioning your character in different places in the frame.”

Simon’s Cat in search of Brighton Rock.

“This cut out was propped up with a card stand and kept straight with pebbles from the beach (obviously you don’t want to lose your cutout in the seaside wind so it’s best to have someone nearby to catch him if he flies!). I lit him with a little bit of cold light from an LED light. It was a dramatic sunset against the old pier and figures.

Simon’s Cat leaping for joy in London.
“I wanted the leaping Simon’s Cat to have trees as his backdrop (to reference the book) and I thought the red phonebox would give a clue to where in the world this picture was taken. We went to Upper Street in Islington, London and I asked my friend to hold the character but I didn’t want his fingers in shot. So we went across the road, bought some fine electrical wire from a newsagents, taped it to the back and he stood very still and patiently held the character in place until we got the shot. The wire is so thin and dark that it can’t be seen against the busy background and the dark wood of the tree.”

Top tip: “Use strong tape to attach a thin wire to the back of your character. You can buy fine electrical wire in the ‘household’ section of many small shops, or gardening wire would work. Alternatively you could use a thin twig or stick, to blend into a tree background.”
