The Scottish Highlander Photo Archive is a searchable online database of vintage photographic portraits and scenic views. The database enables people who are interested in their family history to search the archive for family matches and to purchase prints.
The bulk of the Archive consists of the photographic portraiture lifework of Andrew Paterson (1877-1948) and his son Hector G.N. Paterson (1904-1988), who operated their Inverness studio between 1897-1980. There are also images from several other collections; the Snowie Collection, the Fraser-Watts Collection, the Cook Collection, and the James S. Nairn Colour Collection with hundreds of individual images submitted by contributors from around the world.

The Andrew Paterson Collection is the biographical website of Paterson, whose studio was based in Inverness between 1897-1980. He was an internationally renowned, multi-award winning artist-photographer whose services were sought over several decades by many leading political and commercial figures of the day. In 1935 the Glasgow Daily Record wrote that his “name is known wherever the camera is regarded as a serious medium of expression in portraiture.”
Paterson won both national and international awards and diplomas for his work and gave many exhibitions both at home and abroad. The Daily Record noted that “his portraits have been regarded as setting new standards of excellence in the expression of character.”
