About Phil Hargreaves Photography
Hi, I'm Phil, dog owner, dog lover and award winning dog photographer!
Here at my studio in the beautiful Pendle area of Lancashire I specialise in photographing dogs only (and the occasional cat!), so you can be assured that I will use all my experience and ability to provide you with fabulous images of your dogs for you to treasure always.
I started my photographic journey with the very first digital cameras and loved photography right from the start (and still do!). It soon became my passion and eventually my full time job. Over the years I've been lucky enough to win several photography awards, including Top Dog Photographer of the Year 2018, and still love entering competitions, particularly with my photos of customers dogs!
Along with my wife Julie I have 3 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Billy, Libby and Lettie, and Honey the Golden Retriever (my favourite, but shh, don't tell anyone). All are rescues from puppy farms where they spent their lives as as caged breeding dogs, but now spend most of the day being spoilt and sleeping on the sofa!
I am a member of The Xperience Group, an independent collection of professional photographers based in the UK and Ireland, specialising in a variety of photographic subjects but with one goal, the Perfect Photography Xperience for all.
"I cannot recommend Phil Hargreaves Photography enough.
Absolutely brilliant photo shoot, very organised and lots of fun interacting with my dog to achieve some truly beautiful photos."
