JF Duthie  -  Professional photographer

This photograph of JF Duthie is a detail from a photograph of the 1903 EPS Council Members.

It was taken by FP Moffat, and appeared on the back of the menu for the 3rd EPS Annual Dinner in November 1903.

 

JF Duthie

EPS Member

Lectures

JF Duthie joined Edinburgh Photographic Society 1898.  He gave lectures to EPS entitled:

1904    "Yachting Photography"

1908    “High Speed Photography”.

JF Duthie began his 1904 lecture to EPS with the words:

"Among the many sports with which photography is combined there is none, I consider, which lends itself to the use of the camera so much as yachting."

He ended his lecture with the words:

"In photographing yachts the operator must be able to judge distance accurately, and be prompt in using his camera, as the slightest hesitation usually means the loss of a good picture."

Exhibitions

J F Duthie's entry in the EPS Members' Exhibition, 1911 was described as:

THE AULD BRIG,  JEDBURGH:  a quaint and pleasing composition showing a fine vital quality in the masonry.

President

JF Duthie became President of EPS, for two years from 1908, and was still a Member in 1935.

  

JF Duthie

Commercial Photographer

JF Duthie became a commercial photographer in Edinburgh from 1924 to 1947.

Is JF Duthie related to Andrew Duthie, a Glasgow photographer who produced stereo views, including one of the Forth Bridge?

"Here's a little mystery.  This billhead from J Duthie, in which he describes himself as 'Late JM Turnbull.

There is a big time gap between the dates of these two  photographers on the EdinPhoto web site.

The document does not say explicitly that Duthie was a photographer at this time, in 1904.  When did the postal address change from 6 Rose Street to 13 South David Street?

Any thoughts?

Duthie and Turnbull

Thanks, Ron, for your comments.  I agree about the time gap if we look at when these two men were photographers with studios in Edinburgh.

However, I also have information for photographic dealers in Edinburgh, based on  the contemporary trade directories.  This neatly bridge some of the 46 year gap that you refer to.  See the table below.

Another Generation?

I don't know whether the John M Turnbull and JF Duthie photographic dealers were the same men as John M Turnbull and JF Duthie photographers.  Perhaps at least one of these might have been another generation of the same family.
