Award winning Clonakilty photographer Stephen Hayes is exhibiting his rather haunting photographs of West Cork Landscapes and Coast Scapes at the lovely Grey Heron craft shop in Bandon during the month of October.
In January 2019, Stephen Hayes bought his first camera. By August 2019, his photograph ‘Waiting’ was featured in the prestigious B&W Minimalism Magazine. His photos of Nuns Cove, Long Strand, Harbour View and Ring/Inchydoney were awarded two Honourable Mentions in the annual ND Awards in the fine art landscape category.
Here is Stephen's own description of his work:
“I am an award-winning photographer from Clonakilty, West Cork, Ireland. Photography has completely changed my life for the better. I am so passionate about what I do and I strive to bring that passion out in my work, which is a fine art view of our beautiful West Cork.
I have been very fortunate to have had my work recognised in different photography awards in 2020, winning Honorable Mentions in the Fine Art Photography awards, the Minimalist Photography Awards, Monovisions Photography awards, a Sliver in the Moscow International Foto Awards, 2 Bronze in the PX3 Awards and achieving First Place in the Siena Creative Photo Awards.
Winning these awards is amazing but it is not the reason I do what I do. I love seeing my work come full circle and find their way to a new home. I sell my work as limited edition and open edition prints and these can be found on my website, www.stephenhayesphotography.com. I also offer my prints framed and these can be purchased on request. I have also recently added beginner photography workshops to my services where I have received great feedback and I get to meet some lovely people."
