Mining engineer by profession but a user and innovator of photographic processes. For health reasons he lived in France from 1853 until 1880 and became interested in photography in the company of John Stewart and Jean-Jacques Heilmann. He helped to found the Société Française de Photographie in 1854 and was a member of the Photographic Society of Great Britain. Through the 1850s and 60s he exhibited widely showing his prints of the Pyrenees.
