purdie gallery photography workshops


This is subject to any new lockdown rules arising, but for now I am optimistic we will be able to continue.

Click on the links below to see and book each workshop day. If you are booking from new you will need to pay to secure the place. If you have a gift voucher or 2020 postponed booking then proceed to the checkout and there should be an option to 'pay over the phone' or similar, use that. If the latter - please email to let me know who you are shop@purdiegallery.co.uk

For the time being, I think we should all be using our own transport, so I will select locations with that in mind. If anyone can't do this I am happy to have one or two people with me all windows open in my car. We will meet up on location, the final part of the day (the tutorial where I process pictures on the computer) I will do back at the gallery (ventilated and spaced) then send a video of it to you a few days after the workshop. This means you can pause or wind back to re-watch the tutorial at your own pace. This is something that you will be able to keep and refer back to and provides a valuable reference tool for processing your own shots. I will bring tea and coffee and snacks for lunch, but if you’d rather bring your own that is fine. We will be outdoors all day. 

The maximum number of photographers on each day is six, so you are guaranteed plenty of personal attention and tuition. Advanced days are limited to four people.

The cost of our workshop days is £140 for most days, £180 for the smaller advanced group days. Most day workshops are 10am to 6pm, night workshops 4pm to 11.30pm

‘The workshop days are some of the most enjoyable times I have as a photographer. There is something very satisfying about helping someone to take their skills to new and exciting levels. I always benefit too from getting a different perspective on a familiar location. I have been running these workshops for over 10 years now and no two days are the same. There is always something different to see and I have shot a few of my most popular pictures while out in the field, with my workshop friends.’
