Administrative history

Wamboldt-Waterfield Photography Ltd. was founded by former Halifax Herald employees Lee Wamboldt and Terry Waterfield in September 1965. Lee Wamboldt began at the Herald as a copyboy, cub reporter and photographer in 1957, working nights and doing freelance photography during the day. Terry Waterfield’s career as a Herald photographer began two years later.

In 1963 the Halifax Herald began to outsource their photography. Lee Wamboldt found employment with Halifax Photo Service Ltd., and then joined Waterfield and Bill Duggan to form Duggan Enterprises. This partnership and business dissolved in 1964, and in 1965 Wamboldt-Waterfield was founded.

Wamboldt-Waterfield provided commercial and press photographic services to a diverse group of corporate, government and individual clients including the Dartmouth Free Press, Time Magazine, United Press International, Star Weekly Magazine, Moirs, Maritime Tel & Tel, National Film Board, and a number of advertising and public relations firms. In 1968 Halifax Herald accepted their tender to provide photographic services for the newspaper and a lucrative relationship followed. Wamboldt-Waterfield expanded to include a retail camera store on Gottigen Street—North End Cameraland, which they ran from 1965-1985.

Jim Clark joined Wamboldt-Waterfield as an intermittent staff photographer in 1971. He returned full-time in 1978 and became a partner in 1979. On Lee Wamboldt's retirement in 1985, Clark bought the business. Terry Waterfield, who had sold his shares in 1975, remained active as a company photographer until his own retirement in 1990, at which time Clark changed the name to Clark Photographic Ltd.

Business declined steadily from 1989-1994 as personal camera use rose and work for the Herald decreased. Clark continued to freelance, but was investing increasing amounts of time and energy to keep abreast with the latest digital technologies. In 1988 these changes led him to establish Digiscan Photographic Services with Gary Castle.

Wamboldt-Waterfield Photography and Clark Photographic both remained trade names under the company Digiscan Photographic Ltd. Although the company name was filed with the Registry of Joint Stock Companies until 2018, the business was effectively closed from around 2003.
