Portrait, commercial and advertising photography, guaranteed to make brands stand out
Hacker has never been a photographer who goes along with the crowd.
He combines the latest creative ideas with his 25 years' experience to produce portrait and commercial photography that always pushes boundaries.
Based in Bristol, Hacker has shot portrait, commercial and lifestyle photography for leading brands including Halfords, BNP Paribas, Pets at Home, Sigma, Krust and Roni Size.
He is equally happy shooting either on location or with a full lighting set up in the studio.
Hacker also has a network of hair and make-up artists, clothing and interior stylists to call on to elevate any portrait, commercial and lifestyle photography shoot to a high-end editorial standard.

Do you do
Yes. Hacker first learnt to re-touch in the dark room before translating these skills across to Photoshop when it became the industry standard. This means he has a deep rooted, practical understanding in how to select, colour grade and re-touch each image to get the best from it during the post-production process.
Do you have a studio?
Yes. We have use of a number of Bristol based studios ranging in size and cost to suit any budget. Included in the studio price is also lighting and all the appropriate equipment so your shoot looks professional and high-end.
How many photographs do I get from a photoshoot?
It depends on the needs of each project and complexity of the post-production which we'll discuss when putting together the client proposal and brief. Hacker will be clear in the proposal how many photographs you can expect from the shoot and how long they will take to edit.
Is hair and make-up or stylists included in your packages?
No, but once Hacker understand the needs of the shoot he'll liaise with his network of professional hair and make-up artists and stylists to develop ideas for the shoot and agree their costs. He'll include their fees upfront in the proposal so there are no surprises.
Do you travel for international projects?
Yes. Hacker has travelled all around the world to shoot projects including New York, India, New Zealand, Jamaica and Iceland. He is more than happy to talk about international photography projects.
