This workshop's aim is to help you create fully realised prints that utilise tonal relationships along with new-found editing skills in a colour managed environment.

 If it looks good on-screen, there is no guarantee it will look good in print. Whereas the opposite is true: If it looks good in print, it will also look good on-screen.

I've often noticed things in my work once printed, that I was unable to see on-screen (even with a well calibrated system). I believe that if you are able to perfect your printing, then your image editing skills and overall awareness will move up a gear or two. Ultimately, the print should be your reference point. Nothing else.

During our time we will learn about:

Colour management principles

• Screen calibration & profiling
• Verifying screen calibration using target files
• The importance of daylight viewing booths
• Document profiles & colour spaces 

Digital Darkroom editing techniques

• Understand tonal relationships in the work
• Understanding luminosity values
• Using contrast masks
• Using luminosity masks
• Sharpening for print

Print Evaluation

• Working towards the final print
• Daily critique sessions

As some light relief from our time in the classroom, during the evenings we will have the opportunity to shoot the surrounding Wester Ross Scottish highland landscape.

Informal group setting


Bruce likes to run his photography-workshops in a friendly, intimate group setting. This trip has a maximum group size of six.

Unlike a lot of workshops with up to 12 or 16 people on them, running with a smaller number allows everyone to have space in which to photograph. It also means more quality time for Bruce with each participant.

This is a classroom envionment only. There will be plenty of lively discussions and editing sessions which can be quite brain intensive, but fun also. Otherwise there are no physical demands fo this course.
