Professional  Photographers and Streets  -  Businesses beginning 1839 to 1939

Businesses beginning

 1839 to 1939

1.  Where photographers' businesses began before 1940, ALL their studio dates and addresses are recorded in the first table below:

'Businesses beginning 1839 to 1939'.

e.g.  Moffat:     1853 to 1962
Yerbury:  1869 to 2003.

Names

2.  Photographers were usually listed in trade directories under their surnames.  This is how I have listed them on this site.

Addresses

3. The same studios were frequently  used by a succession of photographers over many years or decades.  To illustrate this use I have also included lists of studios sorted by address.  See the links in the green section of the first table below.

Businesses beginning

 1940 to 2005

1.  The second table covers all other Edinburgh photographers:

'Businesses beginning 1940 to 2005'.

Names

2.  In recent years, an increasing number of photographers have been listed by their first names in the trade directories and other advertising.  e.g. Jones, Lesley is more likely now to be found listed as Lesley Jones or perhaps Lesley Jones Photogrpahy.

3. An increasing number of Edinburgh photographers have been trading under company names rather than their own names.

e.g.  Capital Press Agency
Photo Focus Ltd
Stillprint
or even trading under their web site addresses such as
photoevent.co.uk.

So I have sorted the Businesses beginning 1940 or later lists into order by first name or company name rather than by surname. 

In many cases, a company has traded under more than one name - sometimes using as many as four different names -  so I have added cross references in the listings.

Addresses

4.  Since 1940 there have been less instances of studios being used by a succession of photographers, and the photographers' addresses have been spread over a far larger, many working from home.

Directories

5. In the early trade directories photographers were usually listed under 'Photographers'.  Now they can appear under a variety of headings. 

e.g. Recent yellow pages include many photographers under the the letter 'W':  "Wedding Services: Capture the Day on Film".

I may well have missed some of the photographers listed in recent editions of  yellow pages and other directories. 

Types of Photography

6. Where I have seen adverts describing the type of photography undertaken, I have given details in red on the lists of photographers.  I have not included video photographers unless it seemed likely that they also did still photography.
