Sean Hayes’ Photography Portfolio – Cinemagraphs

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

My new photography website.

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.

Bloomsday Family. Photos by Sean Hayes

Bloomsday is a celebration that takes place both in Dublin and around the world. It celebrates Thursday 16 June 1904, which is the day depicted in James Joyce’s novel Ulysses. The day is named after Leopold Bloom, the central character in Ulysses. Many people dress as the characters and visit Dublin landmarks from the book. In this case, I photographed a family on its way to the Martello Tower in Sandycove where the opening scenes from Ulysses takes place. Shot with my Sony a7s. Post-Processing Adobe Lightroom.

Poetry by Patrick Chapman. Photography by Sean Hayes.

slowclocksofdecay_fullcover

I was invited by Irish poet, writer and screenwriter – Patrick Chapman – to contribute cover photography for his latest collection of poetry; titled ‘Slow Clocks of Decay’. Delighted to do so. The shot selected is of a forlorn rose in my garden on a cold winter’s day. I admired its fortitude in the face of diminishing odds of surviving the north-easterly winds buffeting our garden and decided to capture the rose’s plight in photography. Admiration is also in order for Patrick’s latest work of poetry. As the sleeve notes succinctly states, Patrick’s seventh poetry collection succeeds in ‘Exploring universal themes through the lens of his remarkable imagination’. I’ve selected a poem from the collection that encompasses the transient themes of Patrick’s work. The impermanence of everything.
