William Johnson started his photographic career as a daguerreotypist in Bombay, India and adopted the wet plate collodion process as daguerreotypes became obsolete. He worked in Bombay between 1852-1860. Went into partnership with William Henderson sometime in the mid 1850s, Henderson was already running his own commercial photographic studio in Bombay and probably influenced the change to the wet plate process. Their most important collaboration was the production of a monthly periodical illustrated with albumen photographs Indian Amateurs Photographic Album 1856 - 1858. Much of the work was by Johnson & Henderson as well as other photographers both amateur and professional. Johnson also authored and provided photographs for "‘Oriental Races & Tribes, residents and visitors of Bombay" (2 vols, London, 1863-1866).
