Stephen Hayes is an award-winning fine art photographer based in Clonakilty. Photography is his escape and passion. He uses long exposures & minimalism to capture not what is there but what he sees. Photography lets him experience nature at its most beautiful and living in West Cork, he is surrounded by endless beauty and inspiration.

Stephen loves seeing his images come full circle from conception, to capture and finally to print.

Stephen’s new exhibition, Solace, is a journey through his recent works which includes seascapes, wildlife, minimalism, long exposure and macro images.

“Photography gives me a feeling of peace, calm and solace and my aim with my work is to bring that feeling through to my images” – Stephen Hayes
