Sydney Photographer




In the 16th century the Camera Obscura was refined by inserting a telescope lens into an enlarged hole giving a brighter and sharper image.

In 1727 the first photo sensitive compound was discovered by Professor J. Schulze. He found that a mixture of chalk, nitric acid and silver caused darkening on the side of the flask exposed to sunlight.

It took almost another one hundred years until 1816 until Nicephore Niepce combined the use of the Camera Obscura and photo sensitive paper and a further 11 years until he had created a permanent image.

Mark Crawford Photography was established in 1976, supplying professional photographic services to commerce and industry. Using modern methods and techniques, a long way removed from these early efforts, I am able to offer a reliable, quick and high quality service in all photographic areas.
