David James Hogg (1870 - 1939):
James Hogg was born in Tullywest, near Ballynahinch, County Down. He lived in Belfast and was a joiner by trade. In 1905 he became a member of the Ulster Amateur Photographic Society, and won prizes for his photographs. Subsequently he became a professional photographer. All that has survived of his work is an album of photographs taken in 1909, all of which relate to the temperance issue. He was one of the leading photographers in Belfast.
