This chapter focuses in the prominent early photographers who practiced photography out of personal interest. They were at least as technically proficient as the very best commercial photographers, if not more so. They could also be inventive and experimental, taking a personal and individual approach to their photography as they were not dependent on commercial considerations. The Edinburgh Calotype Club, active from about 1841 to 1856, is claimed to be the first photographic club in the world.
