Sitter in 2 portraits
Artist associated with 55 portraits
Having joined the Army in 1826, Sterling served in the Crimean campaign of 1854-5, first as Brigade Major and afterwards as Assistant Adjutant-General to the Highland division. In 1857 he sold his commission, retiring with the rank of Colonel, but during 1858-9 he was again employed as military secretary to Colin Campbell, Lord Clyde, in the suppression of the Indian mutiny. At some time during the late 1840s Sterling's interest turned to photography, and he produced photographic portraits of members of his family and social circle.
