Welcome to my Photography Workshops Ireland Page.

Hello my name is Kieran Hayes and I am a Photography educator and a multi-international award-winning photographer (not that means much) based in beautiful West Cork, Ireland. 

I have 8 years plus experience teaching clients photography and I have loved every single minute of it. I am personally very passionate about photography and this is far more than a job for me which is why I enjoy it so much.

My main aim is to keep everything simple and for you to get as much out of the day as possible.

On each Photography workshop I cover the technical aspects of photography and explain how to look at different angles, compositions and lighting to create images more personal to you and your style of Photography as at the end of the day you are the person capturing the moment so it should always have your style to it.

If you don’t have a photography style yet don’t worry about it I will show you how to develop your own style. That’s very simple to do.

I have a few different Photography Workshop options… 

I provide One to one Photography workshops here that are tailored to your exact needs and what you want to and need to learn. They are available all year round and at a date and time that suits you.

Group Photography Workshops…  I also run 6 hour group Photography workshops with a one hour zoom chat afterwards. I have my available dates further down the page or I am also available for private groups and camera clubs.

I also have a new Photography Mentorship program I am in the process of rolling out in the next week which includes three one to one Photography workshops (3 hours long) and five 30 minute zooms chats to catch up with you and your progress as well as support via email.

If you would like to know more about my teaching style then please feel free to read some of my Workshop reviews below or watch my Photographs tips and tricks video further down the page.

Group Photography workshops

My Group Photography Workshops Ireland are perfect for photographers that want to learn in a group setting, want to meet other like minded photographers or to simply see how other people take photographs and compose their shots while learning new skills themselves also.

My Group Workshops are 6 hours long and also include a one hour zoom group chat. These Zoom chats are great for sharing photos from the day or asking any questions you might have after the workshop. The group Zoom chat is usually held on an evening in the following week.

You get six hours in some stunning scenery, a few nice photographs hopefully, some new tips and tricks to help your photography and possibly make a few new like minded friends also.

On the day I run you through everything from Composition, Exposure, camera settings all the way through to the right mindset for taking photographs on a session.

You also get a free set of filters and tripod for your own personal use during the workshop.

As well as the group chats I also get a bit of one to one time with you if you have any questions this is a great time to get them answered.

Why Choose my Photography workshops?

I cater for everyone from complete beginners all the way through to professional photographers on my photography workshops. So whatever your skill level you are very welcome on one of my Photography workshops.

With 8 years of experience teaching photography I now how to keep it very informative yet simple at the same time. I also work as a photography educator for over 15 leading international companies. 

I can give you a tripod, a full set of Photography filters and a filter holder for your own personal use for the duration of the workshop if you don’t have your own.

I value your privacy, so I don’t post any behind the scenes photos or videos from the day but I am more than happy to jump into a group shot if you want one 🙂

I offer both one to one photography workshops and group photography workshops, I have a lot more information on the two different types of Photography workshops below as well as my group Photography workshops Ireland dates for 2023.

I have a frequently asks questions section at the end of the page also.

On all of my Irish Photography Workshops I help you…

  • Understand exactly how your camera works.
  • How to get the absolute best out of your specific camera.
  • How to take consistently good photographs.
  • How to develop you own style in photography.
  • How to compose your photographs and a few little tricks that can help you there.
  • How to enjoy Photography even more.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to arrange a private photography workshop either for a group Workshop or a one to one Photography Workshop.

What Equipment do I need for one of your landscape photography workshops in Ireland?

You just need your camera preferably a DSLR or Mirrorless camera, a charged battery (also a spare if possible), a memory card, an open mind, a good pair of eyes, warm clothes and a pair of wellies are also handy :-).

The most important thing to remember is we are all learning constantly and the day we stop is the day we start going backwards. I have spare tripods, filters and filter holders for you so you don’t need to worry about any of that.

Comprehensive one-on-one tuition with a professional photographer.

Whether you’re seeking tuition to improve specific skills, such as how best to use natural light or create depth with aperture and framing, or guidance in the more nuanced aspects of photography, such as composition and post-processing, one to one tuition will provide the perfect opportunity for a deep dive into your photographic ambitions. A personalised course tailored to your needs and goals will be designed around you, so you can make the most effective progress no matter what your skill level.

A 3 hour session is €150.- A 6 hour session is €300.- On my one to one photography workshops it’s all about you and how to improve your photography.

Group photography workshops are great but in my experience you learn a lot more on a one to one workshop as you get to ask the questions you want answered and I can tailor the session to you then and where you are on your photography journey.
