Wallace Nutting came along somewhere around 1894 as a Congregationalist minister in Providence, Rhode Island. It was at Mrs. Nutting's suggestion that Mr. Nutting buy himself a camera, take some drives along Rhode Island countryside, take some pictures and relax from the strains of creating and delivering weekly Sunday sermons. Nutting took her advice. Over the next 50 years he became the most successful marketer of hand-painted photographs in the history of the world. His success did not come overnight and he was not the first person to ever experiment with hand painting a photograph. He did not invent the process for hand painting photographs. He perfected the process of hand painting photographs. He first worked part-time between the years of 1894 and 1904. During this time period he improved upon his photographic techniques, purchased better equipment, figured out the most sellable subject matter, hired help who could paint the photos better than he, and then sold a few pictures. As time went on his techniques improved and his picture inventory increased as well as his sales.

Nutting went through periods of trial and error and decided platinum paper was best suited for his work. Now another term, "platinotype" derived from the platinum paper Nutting used for his pictures.

Probably one of the greatest keys to his success was hitting upon a successful formula. He learned America did not want pictures of factories, smokestacks, crowded city streets or urban tenements. He found out the public wanted and would buy pictures with apple blossoms, birches, spring and fall landscapes, streams, lakes, rivers, hills, mountains, lambs, sheep, and thatch-rooted cottages. Wallace Nutting was one of the first to find the niche market for beautifully hand-painted photographs of America's pristine and picturesque countryside and he was the one to give them to America.
