Welcome to my website, I hope you enjoy your visit.
My name is Marie Hayes and I am from Co. Wexford, Ireland.
Having watched my husband Ken who is a very keen photographer for many years, I was finally bitten by the bug in 2013.
I always had a compact camera and would take pics of my children and their friends over the years, but suddenly I wanted to know how the camera worked, how to edit, how to make my pics look better.
Ken gave me a crash course and armed with my trusty Canon I was off!
I have such a passion for the art of photography. Not a day goes by when I don’t take some sort of a photo. I enjoy all genres, but macro and landscape are my favourites. We are surrounded by beautiful coastline and mountains here in Wexford, so there is plenty of inspiration.
Last year I was lucky enough to win the Ireland AM/TV3 Camera club for July and also to be runner up in the IFA/ Irish Farmers Journal photography competition. My photo ‘My Mountain’ was used on the calendar for the month of November.
I hope you like my photos,
