Schier & Schoefft

Photographic studio in Alexandria (Egypt) operating during the period 1860-1872. Its Austrian owners (Alex Schier and Otto Schoefft) were the official photographers of the regent (khedive) Tewfik. In 1872 the business was ceded over to Cesare Bernieri, who was in possession of Schier’s negatives and was based at the same location as Schier & Schoefft. The latter collaborated with Carlo Naya and continued to work in Cairo.
