These pages contain information about the workshop days. The workshops are all run by David Purdie of the Purdie Gallery.

For shooting & processing, there are beginners, intermediate and advanced days, for all levels of skill and experience. Most people fit into the ‘intermediate’ category. The beginner days are for those new to digital photography. The advanced days are for experts who need additional skills. We also hold night workshops. 

At the end of the day we end up back at the gallery where I process my pictures through Adobe Lightroom, which has become the standard for most photographers. It is Photoshop re-worked for photography only. It is much better designed and cheaper than photoshop.  The idea is you will have similar shots to process when you get home. This part of the day is recorded and sent to you later as a download to rewatch on your computer. This means you can pause or wind back to check what is happening.

Ring the gallery to book your place, or book online below.
