My photography has really gone to the dogs. I specialize in pet photography, family portraits and commercial, lifestyle photography. I create exciting and engaging photos that my clients love. In this digital age of being overwhelmed with images sliding past, I create work that people hang in their homes to remember how important this time of their lives are.

So patient and never gives up until he has the best of the best!
I emailed Fred for a photo session after one of dogs was diagnosed with lymphoma and wanted to pictures while she was feeling good. Fred got us in for a session very quickly and was GREAT with my dogs, including one that is picky with people. We never felt rushed and he captured beautiful keepsakes of my dogs. We choose a couple prints and metal prints and they arrived so very quickly. Fred is a true professional and a great artist! I would highly recommend Fred Levy! More...
Fred did an amazing job photographing 10 6-week old puppies for NEADS World Class Service Dogs (individual portraits and all at the same time). We're not sure how he did it, but each and every photo was just stunning. More...
Fred is AMAZING!

Fred is incredibly patient with dogs of all kinds. He knows how to slowly coax out their inner beauty and transform it into visual art. My dogs range from incredibly shy to delightfully outgoing, but he got the most amazing pictures of each of them. I tell people he's worth every cent I spent for those memories. More...
Fred is amazing to work with! He is very responsive and knowledgeable. The session was so much fun! Fred was great with our two dogs. He got so many beautiful pictures, it was impossible to choose which ones to print! I get so many compliments on these photos. Highly recommend! More...
Fred has a passion for photography that many creators strive to achieve. His work connects us with the charm and personality of his subjects, especially our favorite furry friends. I hope he will photograph my cats, one day. More...
My mom is extremely close with her dog who is getting on in years, and for my mom's birthday I wanted to do something really special. Fred took some incredible pictures of Leo. Leo is a difficult dog to work with but Fred made the whole process easy and fun, and took the time trying different back drops and lighting to get the best photos possible while effortlessly accommodating Leo's special needs. The toughest part was narrowing down the pictures! In the end I ordered two phtos and my mom loved them! I'm already planning another photo session with my cats! More...
I had Fred photograph my two chihuahuas, it was amazing! He captured their personalities on film. Fabulous!
My family rescued a big black dog and he is the LOVE of our life!!
Very lovely photographs. I have a schipperke and a beautiful black foster cocker spaniel, both rescues.

This is a beautiful project! I am so impressed with the attention to all the wonderful black dogs...
Fred's pictures of the horses at Sunset Stables were simply amazing!
I just saw your photos for the Black Dog Project. I was so moved, I have a black Collie German Shepherd and he's sweet gentle and calm :)
Beautiful book! The photos and stories about each dog are moving and inspiring. A portion of proceeds benefit the wonderful Labradors and Friends Dog Rescue, too!

I love your pics! All three of my sweet babies have been black and by far the most beautiful darlings in the kennel when I adopted them! They all could've been in your awesome pics. I wish you could photo shoot my Bauer! More...
I saw this regarding the BLACK DOG BOOK and I wrote to Mr. Levy about MY black dog, Maggie. Within a couple of days he wrote back,and told me how much he enjoys hearing from those of us that are OWNED by BLACK DOGS. My girl is 1 of the most amazing animals that I've ever had the pleasure of knowing let alone loving. Thank goodness for Mr. Levys attention and wonderful book about these amazing animals that for some strange reason are so often sadly bypassed, hopefully it will make people think before turning their backs just because a dogs black! More...
It was such a great experience with my horse and Fred. I now have a picture of her that I will always treasure. Thank you Fred Levy.
Everywhere in the world there is a problem of blac dogs. A lot of them on the street,a lot of them in shelters. In many contries of the Balkans killing dogs. In Srebia, Bosnia, Romania, the situation is terrible. Thanks to this action, I hope that your photos to awaken people's awareness. Big support from Serbia! More...

We wanted a picture of Wexler with his "old man" whiskers. Fred did a beautiful job of capturing everything we love about him. We only wish we had met Fred sooner,sohe could have documented Wexler over the years. Wexlers portrait, printed on aluminum, arrived today; and it is stunning. We highly recommend Fred's services.

Fred took so many great photos of Jordan. It was really hard to narrow it down. We ended up ordering two amazing photos.
Fred has taken many awesome pictures of my golden, Autumn Marie over the years. This past photo session went above and beyond. My girl is 12.5 and has thyroid cancer and isn't long for this world. Having these wonderful pictures of her just warms my heart so much. Thank you Fred! More...
Having seen the "Black Dog Project" book, I jumped at a chance to do a mini-session with Fred to get some portraits of my senior dog. Fred was fun to work with, great with my dog, and the shots were amazing. I chose to get a couple prints on aluminum, and they are stunning! More...

Fred took some great shots of Charlie, one of which is on this site, and one where Charlie is lying down. We had it printed on aluminum, and the effect is just stunning. The black background has receded, and Charlie appears to be floating in three dimensions. Wow! If you want a great photo of your furry family member, especially with the holidays coming, book an appointment with Fred now!

Ever the professional, Fred got our family portraits framed beautifully for the living room! So proud to have these pictures to show off. He always manages to make us look good! More...
Brought one of my 3 dogs to be photographed at Fred’s studio today. She will hopefully be featured in his next project/book focusing on mixed breeds. He took so many beautiful photos I don’t know how I am going to narrow down my choices! Thank you Fred!! More...
What can we say....it was Amazing...we could not be happier with the photos and our entire experience. Fred was terrific. He captured a beautiful expression of our sweet Coby. We will treasure our photo always.... More...
We recently moved to the Boston area and I heard about Fred from his portrait work with Pawsh Dog Boutique and Salon. Instead of just having a photo of our pet, I wanted to also incorporate the entire family. I explained to Fred my vision for the shoot based on previous family photos that departed from the norm and my hope to have photos taken in iconic Boston locations. We covered Beacon Hill and the Fenway area. We got amazing photos of the entire family and the most adorable photos of Wrigley, our goldendoodle. Not only was Fred calm and good humored, he moved quickly and adeptly to get several great photos all under two hours as family members had to catch planes and get to work. Quickly after the shoot, we had a reveal at the house. He selected the best photos for us to review, set up a screen and projector in our family room and revealed his work to many exclamations of excitement from parents and children! He then helped us select photos using some great tools to mimic how they would look on the walls, he framed the photos and then hung the finished products in our home. From start to finish, he serviced all aspects of the process with creativity, patience, kindness, and professionalism. We are already putting our thinking caps on for our next shoot and how we will try to top the fabulous keepsakes he created! Thanks for sharing your talent with us Fred! My family feels lucky to have made a new friendship with you just months since moving here! More...
Fred is awesome ! We love the contrast of our dog and the background. It's completely different from me taking some photos.
Fred did an amazing job taking photos of our family this past summer. We initially started working with him because we wanted some special photos of our dog and he went above and beyond that initial scope to get some wonderful, priceless shots of everyone. He has a very high touch approach to his work and came back with different framing and wall hanging options for us and then took care of all the details to get the photos framed and hung on the walls. I'd highly recommend Fred to anyone looking to have special photos taken! More...
Fred Levy was terrific to work with - professional, personable, flexible - and he produced beautiful photographs. He came to our house to photograph our dog, and I was impressed with his knowledge of lighting, setting, what would be flattering or not. He was very helpful throughout the entire process - recommending appropriate sizes and finishes for each photo selected, with framing recommendations, too. The photographs came out beautifully. He did an excellent job and I highly recommend him. More...
Fred was excellent with my older dog, patient and respectful. He was able to really capture his personality and life! I am so happy with every aspect of my experience with Fred and am so pleased with the results!
His work is beautifully done. Looking forward to getting his book .
Fred Levy is a master of the art. We had the most incredible experience with him. Our puppy is a bit hyperactive and hard to keep still, yet Fred was super patient and diligent and was able to precisely capture the essence of Toby. Within one week, we met with him for the great reveal. He put together a time lapse video as well as the collection of photos for us to enjoy. Fred guided us through proper sizing and finishing based on room lighting and dimensions to best compliment the photos. Highly recommended! More...
Love the photos. They are priceless and beautiful...
I have been a wedding photographer for 24 years but I have never been able to take my own dogs. They love their mom so they run to me. I found Fred through a a mutual friend and to be honest I had pretty low expectations. I knew Fred would be great but my two greyhounds are not great out of their comfort zone. I was amazed at how the dogs responded and the images I have are incredible. I have three 20 x 30 canvas prints hanging in my living room. Sadly two weeks after the session my boy Tucker passed away. I am so thankful to have those images of him. We are waiting for spring to have our new girl photographed by Fred. I know they will be beautiful! More...
Meeting Fred Levy was a special stroke of luck. Like anyone who has a dog, especially a black dog, we think he is a member of the family. Our dog Bing was a rescue lab/terrier or something like a terrier. He has an unusual beard for a lab. This only makes him more special. Fortunately for us, Fred has taken on a crusade to restore the dignity of black dogs with his black dog project. You only have to look at his pictures to see he has a gift for bringing out the best in the dog's features. He is like an Ansel Adams of the dog whisperers. Bing took to him immediately and his patience had a very special influence on Bing. More than anyone I have met Fred has a gift for bringing out the real character of the dog and conveying his compassion for their place in the family.Fred thanks for bringing out the character of Bing in your pictures.

Stunning photography. Just beautiful!
Very beautiful pictures

I also have a black dog that I got from a shelter. I know I don't have the skill to photograph her, but I love her dearly. If you were in Northern Indiana I would bring my Zevah for you to photograph. More...
I'm going to keep the black for shure :D
Love the Black Dogs series!
My black dog and I love it!! Keep it up

Outstanding! Love this project!!!
Thanks so much for a fantastic photo shoot with Denver tonight! We had a blast and cannot wait to see all the pictures and the final ebook!!! :)
I'm so happy to have found Fred Levy Photography! He has been photographing my family since my first son was born and I've always been blown away with the results. Fred is a hands on, creative, eager photographer who is great with pets and children. He, like no one else, has captured my family as we really are (well...probably a little better than we actually are). As long as we are living in the Boston area, Fred will be our family photographer! More...
