Opinions of the Press

Messrs White & Brewster have brought the Photographic Art to great perfection.

  -  Glasgow Chronicle

Their productions are equally striking, lifelike and effective.

  -  Post

We have seen nothing finer in the shape of Photographic Portraits than the specimens Messrs White & Brewster exhibit.  They have a clearness about them, and display in the arrangement an appreciation of artistic effect which could never be expected from mere mechanical photographers.

 -  Scottish Guardian

The photographic portraits of Messrs White & Brewster are more pleasing and far more correct than those usually produced.

  -  Daily Paper

We must admit that we have never seen anything in Photographic Portraits so truly artistic as those by White & Brewster.  They have all the beauty of the finest miniature upon ivory, added to which the correctness of likeness that photography alone can give.  The prices, however, are extremely moderate.
