Most of my workshops are a combintation of Landscape and seascape photography workshops mainly based in West Cork.
Hello, I am Kieran Hayes and I run my landscape photography workshops in West Cork along the amazing Wild Atlantic way coastline, West Cork has without doubt some stunning views and the best conditions for landscape and seascape photography workshops in the world.
I am delighted to announce that for every workshop space booked I will be paying to have 5 trees planted to help keep this planet beautiful and hopefully help our climate too. Let's face it it's up to us to keep this planet beautiful.
By the end of 2021 I hope to have paid for over 1,000 trees to be planted.
Online beginners photography courses and one to one online courses via zoom starting again in 2021 see more details below.
Please see my 2021 photography workshop dates below or contact me if you would like to arrange a one to one photography workshop in West Cork and don't forget to subscribe to my newsletter below.

I will be running photography editing courses online over the winter period. I will mainly be concentrating on editing in both Adobe Lightroom and Skylum Luminar as I work for both these companies and these are the two products I actually use for editing my images.
The course will be on Tuesday nights from 8:00PM to 9:30PM GMT for four weeks.
It's €75.00 for the course for the four weeks.

Formatt Hitech workshops Ireland (free event).
Well, I could say I am a professional photographer and go on about where I have had my images published and awards etc... but to be honest with you none of that really means anything to me and probably shouldn't to you either.
I love photography and I also love teaching it to people. I am a naturally relaxed and easy-going person and I always try to speak in as much plain English as possible on the day. My aim is for you to get as much out of the workshop as possible.
I can also supply you with a free professional tripod and filter holder and filters for your own personal use on the day.
I work with the following brands so I am delighted to be able to offer you some great discounts on premium equipment...
With a few more amazing companies being added to the list very soon.
I also follow up with clients via email afterwards. To help answer any questions they may have.
What it all comes down to is I want to share my passion with you and help you to improve your own work.

I frequently host talks for camera clubs around Ireland on zoom, I have a number of different presentations available from... landscape photography and a section on photography filters and editing... commercial work and how the game is constantly changing and how to push yourself for and promote yourself... or if it's more light hearted talk you are looking for then I can run you all through how I got started in photography and went from being a person who had no interest in photography to it becoming my full time job in the blink of an eye.
As a Photography Educator, Featured Artist and Brand Ambassador for Formatt Hitech Filters they have given me a large number of Firecrest filters and several filter holders for my landscape photography workshops to help me demonstrate the correct use of filters both on club workshops and and also in club meetings. I have years of experience working with Formatt Hitech filters as well as past experiences working with Cokin, Lee and Nisi filters and holders.
Or I can also talk about my commercial and portraiture work if that would be more appealing to your particular club. I work as a commercial photographer for a lot of companies in Ireland and abroad. My work has been used by Aer Lingus, HSE, OPW, Lidl, Dunnes Stores, Super Valu to name but a few and published hundreds of times nationally and around the world. A small sample of my work can be seen on my commercial website.
If your club is interested in having me along for a talk or organising a few group landscape photography workshops then please contact me here, I would love to discuss it with you.
On my workshops, you get a set of professional photography filters and a filter holder kindly sponsored by Formatt Hitech, as a Brand Ambassador, Featured Artist and Photography Educator for their products I can also give you a 10% off discount code HAYES10 for use on their website at checkout. You are of course very welcome to use your own filter also if you have them.
My recommended filter kit is the signature artist Elia Locardi filter kit.
This is the kit I use for clients on workshops.
You also get the use of a professional tripod if you don't already have one with you.
You get a few hours of tuition with me and also some guidance to help you improve your photography.
We cover everything from how to use your camera, the exposure triangle (don't worry I can simplify that for you), composition, best practise for taking photographs and how to capture the image you see in your minds eye and transfer that to the camera.
Yes that's the plan for nearly every workshop and it might seem simple but you would be surprised at the amount of people that make simple mistakes as we all did at one time.
My aim is to cut back on these errors and get you to master your camera and understand its settings.
This is not always possible on one workshop but it will certainly put you on the right track.
This is definitely one of the most frequently asked questions about my landscape photography workshops and the answer is really simple.
You just need your camera preferably a DSLR or Mirrorless camera, a charged battery (also a spare if possible), an SD card, an open mind, a good pair of eyes, warm clothes and a pair of wellies.
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.
That's it, if you have any questions at all or are unsure about your camera then please contact me here and I will get back to you ASAP.

A 3 hour session is €150.-
A 6 hour session is €250.-
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.
As with all my Irish landscape photography workshops I can supply you with a professional tripod and filter holder and filters for the duration of the one to one photography workshop.
I also keep in contact with clients via email afterwards and answer any questions they may have.
I run one to one photography workshops all year round and on days that suit my clients. Click here to send me a message about a one to one photography workshops Ireland.
A new demonstration series of workshops on Formatt Hitech filters is coming soon.
You will be able to try out the filters for yourself on location and ask any questions you may have about them also.
We are currently trying to fix dates for these training day workshops.
We hope to announce dates in the next few months.
