Michelle and I went for a walk around Lyme Park in Cheshire (part of the Peak District National Park) on Sunday.  It’s a beautiful place, in fact I believe the country house there is where Darcy meets Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice!

I took my Canon G10 along for the walk and took a couple of photos, including one of Michelle when she wasn’t looking!  The two landscape photographs are each of “The Cage” which at one point was used as a lock-up for prisoners.

I love taking personal photographs with the Canon G10 as I feel it gives me a lot of freedom.  When I using my DSLR I sometime feel as though I need to get a technically correct photograph whereas with Canon G10 I feel as thought it doesn’t matter as much – which is really nice.  These photographs are full of noise but it really doesn’t matter!

My first wedding of 2010 is on Saturday at the Egypt Mill Hotel in Gloucestershire and I can’t wait!!

I am very excited to announce that I will shortly be launching a brand new website: www.weddingphotographyadvice.com

As the name suggests the site will be dedicated to helping new and aspiring wedding photographers.

I have been photographing weddings for almost 4 years now and, whether it be through my own experience or from that of other photographers, I have learnt so many things which have helped me develop in to a better wedding photographer and I will be sharing my experiences and advice through this site.

However, as I still have lots to learn myself and I am always looking to improve my own photography, as well as writing posts myself I will also be encouraging other wedding photographers to contribute their own tips to the site. Over time, as more articles and tips are added, I hope that the site will become a very useful and valuable wedding photography resource.

So, to all my wedding photographer friends, if you would like to write a post for the site, please email your article or suggestion (and an image should you wish to showcase your work) to me at info@neilredfern.com and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

The site will be launched this St. Valentines’s Day so please keep your eyes peeled!
