Announcement: PPOC Accreditation | Wedding Environmental Photography

I am very pleased to announce that as of today, I am an accredited professional photographer!

New website, new wedding album

If you’ve been to my blog before, you may notice a small difference — I have changed URLs! Instead of photo.fernish.com, my site is now at redfernphotography.ca. The domain recently became available, so I made the switch. I also changed my hosting. It’s funny, things look exactly the same except for the URL change, but there was a lot of …

Canon Lens Mug

Prices will still be very reasonable, but I need to increase them slightly to cover all the extra expenses that go with being a photographer, particularly the time spent honing my craft, spending …

Photography Books

iMac & Adobe Lightroom

It’s been far too long since I’ve updated! It’s been a busy start to the year, although kind of slow going because I was having some real computer issues. My PC is six years old, and it was no longer able to handle basic things, like image correction or even storing larger files. It was time for a replacement. With …
