Kieran Hayes Photography

Photography by International Award-Winning Photographer Kieran Hayes.

Hello, my name is Kieran and I am a photographer from Clonakilty, West Cork, Ireland. I travel around Ireland doing Portraiture, Commercial photography, Landscape Photography and of course my photography workshops. I am lucky enough to work for both National and International companies where my clients send me products to shoot in my studio or on location.

My passion for photography stems from my absolute love of the Irish coast and the Wild Atlantic Way. I have always lived close to the sea and I guess the salt is just in my veins. There is just something so utterly awe inspiring about the Irish coastline and its beauty is second to none, the West Cork coastline is so incredible diverse it’s a photographers paradise and I am lucky to live here.

I began my professional photography career in 2014 after crazily only picking up my first real camera less than 12 months previously, I immediately started working for nationwide companies and developed my business rapidly from there. Since then I have been lucky enough to have had my work published tens of thousands of times worldwide and worked for some of Ireland’s largest companies.

I am proud to be a Partner/Ambassador for the following brands… Formatt Hitech Professional Filters, f-stop camera bags, Neewer Photography and Videography accessories, Skylum Software, ON1 Software and a few more companies.

Photography Work

Photography isn’t simply a job for me it’s my passion and I love the sheer diversity of my work from high paced commercial studio work where time is money to explaining the finer points of photography to a student on a beach with the sea lashing against the rocks while on one of my photography workshops around Clonakilty, West Cork or Kerry.

Or meeting those gorgeous little newborn babies with their parents and helping to capture one of their first moments that will be treasured for years to come. 

Over the years I have won several international awards and my work has been published in hundreds of magazines and News Papers. I was also awarded the Most Innovative Irish Landscape Photographer of the Year by the Irish Business Awards for 2021 and the Innovation and excellence awards also.

I have been lucky enough to have worked for a lot of Fashion labels and designers in the Fashion industry both on one-off and regular shoots varying from studio Product shoots to the now trending outdoor product shoots where my background in Landscape photography provides a key role. The fast-paced ever-changing world of Fashion is something that absolutely enthralls me.

I only use the latest professional grade equipment with a backup set on hand at all times, ensuring your images are always delivered in the best way possible.  I am also fully insured and VAT registered.
