c1850s / 1860s George Washington Wilson Largish Scottish Albumen Photo. #5
Acclaimed Scottish photographer (1823 -1893) & photographer to Queen Victoria.
George Washington Wilson studied art in Edinburgh and London before moving to Aberdeen in 1849 to pursue a career as a portrait miniaturist. From 1852 he took up portrait photography. Success led to commissions from the royal family and the creation of a photographic record of the construction of Balmoral Castle in 1854-5. In the 1860s his technical development of outdoor photography led him to concentrate increasingly on landscape, rather than portraiture. He also developed photographic printing for the mass market and by the time he died in 1893 his business was one of the largest publishers of photographic prints in the world.
