Denis is a commercial and portrait photographer based in Tipperary working nationally.
He shoots with a cinematic style characterised by vibrant colours, contrasted against dark backgrounds. He loves to work with people and prides himself on his ability to form a personal and natural rapport with clients, creating a comfortable and positive environment where they can express their deepest potential behind the camera and capture the best version of themselves or their product.
Having travelled much of the world, and lived several years in the Middle East, Denis is extremely versatile and can easily adapt himself to a new environment and a new team. He has a contagious enthusiasm, which fires the imagination of the people around him and pushes the possibilities of a project far beyond their initial expectations.
What attracts him most to the commercial sector is its immense variety, encompassing many different genres of photography. Always conscious of his clients needs; Denis loves to take a concept from its initial stages on the drawing board and manifest it into a rich and complex visual image, enhancing the reputation of the brand.
Denis' studio is centred in the historical town of Cashel, but he works nationally and is always ready to pack up his gear and hit the road for an international project.

"I found Denis Vahey to be a very professional photographer when I asked him to do some work shots for my auctioneering practice recently. Denis was always easy to deal with, and his pleasant manner made it relaxed for the photographic session. We intend to use his work on printed material and a website in the near future. Overall a superb and cheerful professional."
John FitzGerald - Auctioneer
"Denis is the best at what he does. He is a consummate professional as well as being an extremely approachable and very funny guy who clearly adores his job. For me, personally, Denis' real skill lies in his ability to put his clients at ease; I loved every minute of our time together - this is coming from someone who hates having his picture taken! I cannot recommend Denis enough."
John Flynn - Musician
"We approached Denis with an 11th hour request to photograph an event launch that we had just confirmed. We were on a very tight deadline to produce the promotional material, ready for media release the following day. Denis was incredibly accommodating, managed the shoot that contained many elements including both people & greyhound (neither easy to direct!) and produced shots that landed in both National & Regional Press. We were so happy with the service and attention to detail that we have used Denis many times since on a variety of different projects. Denis is highly personable and professional and I have no hesitation in recommending him."
Orla Strumble | Head of Marketing

"Denis has worked with us in Launching Penny Lane since opening our doors in Aug 2012 and has never disappointed. Denis' shoot capturing our Cocktails was absolutely sublime and they received great applause on social media. The ambience captured in every photograph is testament to his brilliant understanding of light. Denis works brilliantly with his clients and will not shoot one photograph before he gets an understanding of what he's asked to capture. Denis' passion for photography is evident in every photograph taken, a true professional and fun to work with. Denis will never take shortcuts or compromise when it comes to the quality of his work. Denis Vahey truly is 'The Rock and Roll of Photography' and I have admired his art for years."
