Suzuki Shin'ici moved to Yokohama in 1869 to study painting under Charles Wirgman. Soon after he became interested in photography and went to work with Shimooka for seven years before opening his own studio in Nagoya in 1876. After a short stay in San Francisco working with I.W. Taber, he returned to Japan and opened a studio in Tokyo. In 1888 he photographed Emperor and Empress Meiji.
Ogawa Kazumasa became interested in photography at the age of 15. After a short time in America where he worked with carbon printing and collotype, he returned to Japan and opened a studio in Tokyo as well as a photomechanical printing factory. Ogawa was probably best known for his collotype photography and most likely spent little time producing albumen prints.
Kashima Seibei was an amateur photographer who was active in the 1890s who helped finance Ogawa's collotypes.
