As a clergyman Drummond had been attached to the Scottish Episcopal Church but his evangelical leanings resulted in his removal from office in 1843. He took up landscape photography as a hobby in the 1860s, becoming a member of the Edinburgh Photographic Society in 1861. Drummond's health was undermined by the quarrel with his church and he wrote in 1864, 'It is impossible to say how much, under God, I owe both in my mind and body to photography in my hours of leisure'. He served on the council of the Photographic Society of Scotland in 1862 and 1864.
