This New York Times video interview with pet photographer Walter Chandoha is too charming to pass up. Chandoha has made a living creating stunning portraits of cats and dogs since the 1950's, decades before cats took the internet by storm.

Chandoha's photos are beautifully shot medium format scenes that you can't help by smile at. He got his start after bringing home a stray kitten and taking pictures of it going nuts in front of a mirror in his apartment. Keep 'em comin, Walter! [New York Times]
