Kieran Hayes Photography, Photographer Clonakilty, West Cork, Cork | About

Hello and thanks for visiting my website, as you may have guessed my name is Kieran and I live in beautiful Clonakilty.


So as this is the about me section I should tell you I am a father of 4 gorgeous kids with a 5th on the way, yes five kids!!! What was I thinking :-), my beautiful other half Nadja some how puts up with me on a daily basis and still smiles.


I absolutely love photography and its never work to me when its something you love doing.


I am an award winning Photographer based in Clonakilty, West Cork, Ireland.


I am a member of the society of wedding and portrait photographers (although I don't do weddings), an official member of the Nikon Professional User's club and a proud Official brand ambassador for Firecrest Formatt Hitech camera filters.




As I said I absolutely love photography and consider every job both a challenge and a new adventure as every one is different.


My photography revolves around movement and light to create moving images as I like to call them. I pride myself on my work and always approach each job from the customers perspective.


Over the years I have been incredibly lucky to have worked with a lot of amazing people in different sectors.. 

From your classical newborn photoshoots & family portraits.

Commercial work with numerous designers, clothing labels, Jewellers, Restaurants, Hotels and developers.


All of these experiences and unique jobs have helped to mould my photographic style into what it is today.


Lastly there is my Landscape Photography and how I love just watching mother nature work her magic. Its not only a pleasure but an honour to be surrounded in the Irish landscape and attempt to capture its raw beauty. Even better is when on a photography workshop or one to one tuition and explaining it to a student.


I sell professional photographic prints here on my website worldwide and directly to customers in and around West Cork.


I shoot Portraits both on location and in my studio. As Clonakilty is full of stunning locations from Beaches, forests to Hotels and Gardens we are spoilt for choice.


Newborn Photography I find is generally done best at the clients home as everyone is more comfortable in the surroundings and you avoid the hassle of moving the baby also. I bring all the props and equipment with me, before I leave I run you through the rough images captured on my laptop also.


Any questions please feel free to ask.
