William Notman (1826-1891) was a Canadian photographer and businessman. Notman was born in Paisley, Scotland in 1826, the same year in which photography was born in France. William Notman moved to Montreal in 1856. An amateur photographer, he quickly established a flourishing professional photography studio on Bleury Street. Notman's reputation and business grew over the next three decades, the first Canadian photographer with an international reputation.
