Commercial & Product

Approximately 88% of us base our decision to purchase on whether or not there is a visual representation of the product we wish to buy. The better the image, the more likely we are to decide to get the product, and the more we are likely to pay (eBay is a prime example) .
Cracked Light's product photography rates are very competitive, and there are no minimum order quantities!



I love working with families to create lasting portraits that my customers want to share and have in their homes. Aside from the more formal posed shots, I try to make the session fun so I can also capture some of the more candid moments from the shoot that really allow personalities to shine.



Whether for a professional portfolio, or a portrait for your wall, a headshot needs to show your personality in a still image and put you in your best possible light.

Customer Testimonials

I won a photoshoot competiton with a company recently to feature on their website and social media, with also getting to keep some extra photos for myself, and am so glad they chose Cracked Light Photography as the photographer. Dom is a real gent, very professional and made me feel comfortable as I was nervous to begin with. He takes the time to make sure each shot is just right with the correct lighting and position. He made the whole experience very enjoyable and the final photos look great. A very talented guy who I would highly recommend.

Great photographer! I got a few new product lines and cracked light got me some great images for my website.

I worked with Dom to get new customer testimonial shots for the company I work for. He made sure to make the customer feel comfortable and calmed her nerves. Provided us with a fantastic range of photos to choose from and worked to our brief perfectly. Would definitely recommend working with Dom!

I had some photos taken for my birthday and I am so glad I chose Crackedlight Photography. Dom is a true professional who really knows his stuff. He took a lot of time ensuring that the lighting and poses were absolutely correct and I am delighted with the end result. I highly recommend Dominic Hannon (Crackedlight Photography)

Had my newborn pics done with Dominic and absolutely love them!!! They were exactly what I wanted, natural and spontaneous. Dominic really knows how to capture those precious moments that you want to remember forever

Absolutely brilliant photographer, so patient and understanding and took some lovely shots, I highly recommend him!

Love love love all the Halloween pics of the boys all dressed to kill on their superhero outfits

As always I like to give clients some time to enjoy and share their images for themselves, these are few shots from a photoshoot a couple of weeks ago. George was a great subject, and has very kindly given me a positive review on Yell.
