Charles Shepherd (photographer)
Charles Shepherd (fl. 1858–1878) was an English photographer and printer who worked in India in the second half of the 19th century. His photographs include scenes of soldiers and civilians, both English and indigenous.
In 1862, Shepherd and Arthur Robertson established a photographic studio called Shepherd & Robertson in Agra. The firm moved to Simla in 1864, at which point Samuel Bourne joined the business to work as principal photographer. At about this time, the firm changed its name to Howard, Shepherd & Bourne, and after the departure of Howard it became Bourne & Shepherd around 1868. Shepherd and Bourne opened a second branch in Calcutta (now Kolkata), where they operated a portrait studio, and their work was widely retailed throughout the subcontinent by agents and in Britain through wholesale distributors.
