About MADCAT Photography
Welcome to our Online Gallery we are Dave & Maggie Catley owners of MADCAT Photography based in Perth Western Australia. Dave is a a Landscape & Wildlife Photographer and Maggie runs our Photographic and Digital Imaging business from our Gallery & Shop at Wanneroo Markets in Wangara.
“Our Mission is to capture & share the natural beauty of the Western Australian landscape, its flora and fauna, through Photography & Art. We strive to help promote, protect & preserve everything Western Australia (& Planet Earth) has to offer.”
At MADCAT Photography we create a wide range of Fine Art Prints, Fine Art Products & Photo Products which we would love to think will enhance and enrich the lives of those around us. We can also arrange basic Framing Services depending on on your needs or recommend a Professional Framer to you.
We also offer a friendly, hands on, Printing Service for your own loved and cherished photos. We understand that not everyone is a professional photographer but with Dave’s photo editing & printing skills you’ll be amazed what we can do with your images.

We provide basic Framing & Stretching Services for you through our Framing Associates to save you the time and effort or for more specific needs we can recommend a quality Framer near you.
We provide basic framing & stretching services for the prints, canvases & products we sell.
Our framing services come in many forms depending on the specific needs of our customers, including:
- Quality premade frames from local framers in a selection of finishes:
- Wood / Black / White / Silver / Gold
- Basic canvas stretching
- Premade frames designed to fit particular products such as:
- Tiles / Greeting Cards
If you require a more tailored framing solution or are looking for options we do offer then we will happily recommend a professional framer for you to visit who will provide a high quality & affordable service.
Fine Art Products
- Greeting Cards (can also be framed as mini prints)
- Laminated Bookmarks

- Canvas Coasters
- Key Rings
We are excited to be extending our range of products to include a new type of Photo Product using a printing technology that allows us to apply our images directly on to a wide range of objects and clothing.
Unlike older technologies which simply stick a vinyl layer onto a product or a piece of clothing this method infuses (or sublimates) the ink into the surface of the product, you really have to see it to believe it.
To ensure the utmost quality and colour accuracy we have invested in a new range of printers purpose built for this technology by Sawgrass Inc in collaboration with Ricoh. It is only with the combination of Sawgrass printers & software and specially coated product “blanks” that we are able to reproduce the visual quality of our Fine Art Prints onto everyday objects.
The possibilities are endless but here are a few of our most popular products printed by us:
- Aluminium Prints / Badges / Signs
- Mugs / Stubby Holders / Coasters / Drink Bottles
- Tiles / Lens & Cleaning Cloths / Key Rings
Additionally we can also get the following products printed here in Australia (unless otherwise noted)
- Tote Bags
- Studio Pouches
- Cushion Covers
- 1.5m (and larger) Wall Tapestries (printed in USA)
We Print Your Images
We do so much more than take your image and print it, there are many print houses that will do that for you already.
Come into the Gallery and Maggie will take a look at your images and discuss what your options are, we understand that not everyone wants perfect so we’ll give you the honest truth how big you images can be printed and what they will look like. Then Dave will work his magic and create a result that will amaze you.
We are proud to help promote Western Australia as a Tourism Destination as well as being keen supporters of the Wildlife & Conservation efforts of organisations such as RSPCA WA & Native Animal Rescue.
