This index, compiled by the Digital Initiatives department of the North Dakota State Library, provides historical information about professional/ commercial photographers and studios in North Dakota. The index is in alphabetical order by the photographer's last name (or surname). In some cases, a studio name is listed. The index also provides the location and dates of operation of the photographer or studio (if this information is known). For the dates of operation, many are estimations. The most complete data in the index includes photographers and studios from the 1880s to the 1920s.
The index is likely missing many photographers, and not every photographer or studio has complete information. As a result, this index is an ongoing project. If you have any additional information that can help update this index, please contact the Digital Initiatives department.
