His father Alden began the business in Indiana. Having had sunstroke and unable to do field work, he learned photography at its beginning making tintypes of Civil War soldiers around Indianapolis. When he moved to Wichita in 1885, his son followed him in the family business. Homer eventually went out on his own in a commercial photography studio at 215 East Douglas, just down from his father's place. His father died in 1927 and Homer retired the year after in 1928.
