(c.1815–1872), Scottish photographer, active in Rome, where he established himself c. 1841 as a painter and art dealer. Introduced to the ‘new art’ of photography in 1851, he subsequently favoured Dr J. M. Taupenot's collodio-albumen process which, despite long exposures, best suited his practical and aesthetic needs.
