David trained as a painter at the Royal College of Art, but after graduating ended up working as a photographer shooting advertising and documentary work for the next 20 years. He gave all that up in 2007 to open his own photographic gallery in Rye on the south coast, exclusively selling his own landscape work.
David says that his pictures are often of fairly ordinary scenes which, when shot the right way and at the right time, can become extraordinary. "My pictures are about revealing beauty in the unexpected. It comes through looking at the world around us, using our eyes to see something unexpected, something amazing."

very pleased with my 'storm waves' canvas by David Purdie, love it. I have it in my bathroom and have pleasure at just looking at it while lying in the bath. Had to send the first one back due to a small flaw in the canvas and there was no problem or quibble, it was collected and a new one dispatched very quickly.
