About Me

Hello! My name is Tony McCrackin, I'm a photographer based out of Indianapolis, Indiana. My photography is pretty diverse, recently I've been focusing on portraiture, photography documenting my life, and images centered around my experiences in the marching arts. 


I grew up in Grand Ledge, Michigan and have been a creative spirit as far back as I remember, from my involvement in elementary music through my high school's band, choir, and musical theatre programs, and then leading into my BS in Music from Central Michigan University - which actually helped my discover my passion and strength in photography. 

In 2017, I picked up a camera to take photos of some events at the School of Music and never looked back. I decided that if I'm going to to something I might as well be great at it, so I practiced my portraiture, took photos and did social media for the School of Music, and worked two summers on the media team at the Madison Scouts while finishing my degree.

I currently work as a freelance photographer in and around Indianapolis, with relationships with several companies I work for semi-consistently, including Performing Arts Photography by Bateman, Blue Devils Performing Arts, FloSports, the Madison Scouts, and 317 Performing Arts. In addition to my work in the performing arts, I do a lot of portrait photography, especially for high school seniors, college graduates, and engaged couples. 

In time spent outside of photography and the marching arts, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, exploring Indianapolis, following current events, drinking coffee, listening to the same few albums on repeat, and listening to podcasts.

    "Tony McCrackin is a leader in quality photography. Tedious is never tedious with Tony because his work is about giving you the highest quality product and no detail is ever too small. His work combines emotion and passion within the marching arts and beyond the activity. If you have any opportunity to book with Tony, my recommendation: DO IT."

    "Tony is the best at capturing moments. He tells a story with every photo, and knows exactly what he’s looking for, and what you’re looking for! 10/10 recommend!"

  • Danielle Larsen

    "Tony tries his best to get you to laugh genuine, caught off guard, laughs that always makes the BEST pictures! Very open to editing how you personally would like your pictures, though he usually nails it on the first try.

    He does everything to make sure you both understand the process, that you both are completely comfortable for the whole time.

    11/10 would definitely take pictures with him again."

  • Zoe Johnson

    "Tony takes a lot of pride in what he does, and is great at capturing you. During his sessions, he does a good job at making you feel as comfortable as possible, and it shows in the photos he takes. My sessions were a lot of fun because of this. Tony’s edits are stellar. He puts love into every photo he edits. Whether you want photos for personal or professional use, you’ll be very pleased with results. I highly recommend hiring Tony as a photographer."
