He developed the heliograph, a technique used to produce the world’s first known photograph in 1825. Later in 1839, Louis Jacques Daguerre took the first fixed image, after which he became known as one of the fathers of photography.  In 1856, tintypes were developed by Hamilton Smith, and decades later, George Eastman invented flexible and unbreakable films that could be rolled. This was the birth of the first Kodak that was offered for sale in 1888.
