Cinemagraphs are still photographs brought to “life”. The Dublin-based creative team of Trista Vincent and Declan Byrne have commissioned me to create a suite of images for their Car’n’Stuff campaign for Liberty Insurance Ireland. Lots of fun. More to come. Click on images to see the magic.    Source: Sean Hayes’s Photography Portfolio – Cinemagraphs

Since I launched myself as a full-time photographer earlier this month, commissions have being coming in thick and fast. In between shoots, I’ve taken the opportunity to take casting headshots of some of the models. Voilà Gabi and her beautiful eyes. If you would like to see more of my work, please visit:

“Chiaroscuro” is a painting and drawing technique of light and shade, masterfully employed by one of my favourite painters – the 16th century Italian painter Caravaggio. Classic fine art painting informs a lot of my photography composition, light, etc. If you want to learn photography, I always suggest studying the work of old painting masters. They understood light perfectly. And if you understand light – you’re more than half way to being a master photographer. As always, I’m delighted my work has been selected by the Mobile Camera Club for this video showcase. Congrats to all the artists (particularly impressed with the work for this theme) And thanks to Nad, Leny and all for their commitment to bringing mobile photography to a wider audience.

Someone, somewhere stated that “Good is the enemy of great”. I’ve been fiddling with my new website for weeks trying to make peace between the two. A truce was called. Time to launch myself into my “second life”. Being an advertising art director for the last 25 years has been incredibly rewarding for me – but my real passion now is photography. When you are passionate about doing something,  you tend to do it well, and it shows in the work. Hopefully, my passion for photography will, in time, shine through. If you get a moment, I would appreciate you visiting the site and rummaging around. Please feel free to suggest ideas and thoughts about the site and how I could make it better. Good enough may be the enemy of great, but the will to get better is your best weapon in the fight to do great work.
