Photographer: Kieran Hayes

For me photography revolves around two elements.... Movement and Light, I strive to combine both to create Moving Images.

I am originally an audio visual engineer with a background in camera repair. Over the years I had found myself transitioning to being the one using the camera rather than repairing it.

My passion lies with the sea, photography is my canvas to capture the moments that both bring me peace, inspiration and also sometimes leave me in utter awe.

I really enjoy the creative control of modern professional camera equipment, I constantly strive to create an image that's different. I enjoying playing with exposure speeds to give different effects depending on the scene. I am not a lover of Photoshop in fact I very rarely use it.

I hope you enjoy my photographs as much as I enjoyed being there in that specific moment capturing them.

Late evening in Dunmore, Clonakilty, West Cork and a beautiful moment as the sun was setting off to my left as I photographed the sea before me. I quickly changed position and use an off camera flash at a lower level to help light the rock and flowers.

from 45.00

Photographer: Kieran Hayes

This Photograph was taken at Long Strand Beach on a winters evening as a storm rolled in with the tide. I used a slow shutter speed and a very sturdy tripod to catch the water as it raced over the rocks in front of me with a slight blur in the water to emphasis its movement.

"This is my alternative view of Mizen Head Lighthouse and signal station, Ireland's most south westerly point.

The Warren Beach, Rosscarbery, West Cork. This beach has a beautiful man made shelter to keep the beach from washing away during one of our strong storms. The dramatic leading lines of the rocks creeping towards the headland helps to ground the image while the slightly blurred clouds and water give it a nice element of movement.
