George Washington Wilson (1823-1893), born in Alvah, Aberdeenshire, was a pioneering Scottish photographer. By the early 1850s he was established in Aberdeen as an artist and portrait photographer. He received a contract to photograph the Royal Family, working for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and was later commissioned to illustrate Queen Victoria's diaries of her time in Scotland when they were published. By the 1860s he was increasingly focussed on landscapes and stereoscopic views.
