Lawyer who had some painter training and quit his practice to take up photography. Became well-known for first photos of the Kremlin and Russia, and then for photos of the Crimean War, some of the first war photography. Traveled throughout Britain and photographed landscapes, architecture and still lifes; a founding member of what became the Royal Photographic Society. Gave up photography and returned to law when photography became looked upon as a craft for tradesmen rather than an art.
