Francis Bedford (1816 in London – 15 May 1894) was an English photographer. Francis Bedford was the son of the successful church architect Francis Octavius Bedford. He began his career as an architectural draughtsman and lithographer, before taking up photography in the early 1850s. He helped to found the Royal Photographic Society in 1853. In 1854, at Marlborough House Queen Victoria commissioned him to photograph objects in the royal collection. The National Photography Collection held at the Museum is one of the finest and most extensive anywhere in the world. It encompasses many significant groups of material, including the Science Museumís Photography Collection, The Royal Photographic Society Collection, the holdings of the former Kodak Museum and the picture library of the former Daily Herald newspaper.
