Historic Photographers Search:
This section allows the public to access limited information from our database of historic photographers. Almost all records in the historic photographers database include the name, location and date or date-span for specific photographers. Every citation includes a reference to the source from which the information was derived. About 60% of all photographer records are from the USA, 10% from the UK, and the rest from about 50 other countries."
Advanced Search is available for subscribers
with credits available. Advanced search allows wild-card characters and search by location as well (or instead)
of names. Up to 100 results are returned (50 is the maximum on this page) and the results list gives the
full address (results here are truncated at the town name). Just log-in and follow the link to your control
panel at the upper right corner of any page to find the link to Advanced Search.
See EXAMPLES of typical public domain photos and historic photographer records
from the database.
If a first name or initial is used, search returns exact results for the surname only. If only surname is entered, it will be expanded to include names beginning with the characters entered. Other wildcards are not allowed.
Firstname results will also include partial initial matches ... i.e. 'R' will
return R S, Robert, Roger, but not T R or James Robert. Do not enter anything in the firstname
box if searching for a gallery or business name.
