Alexander McGlashan (Scottish, died 1877)
Alexander MacGlashan began life as a printer, taking up photography in the 1850s. David Octavius Hill worked with him briefly around 1860. Their partnership was short-lived because their styles of work did not match well. MacGlashan was a studio photographer, who tended to clutter his portraits with furniture and other props. His uninspired technique could not translate Hill's artistic ideas into good enough photographs.
