Sir John Herschel,he was the one who first used the term in 1839.That is the year the photographic process became public."PHOTOGRAPHY" is derived from the Greek words for light("phos") and writing/paint brush ("graphis").
There are two distinct scientific processes that combine to make photography possible. The first of these processes was optical.The second process was chemical.
