George Perry Ashley Abraham was born in Devizes, Wiltshire, in 1844.
He worked as a photographer with Elliot & Fry of Baker Street, London, before becoming apprenticed to Alfred Pettitt in Keswick in 1862, and then starting his own business in 1866.
Abraham did studio portraits, but his passion was for photographing landscapes. He founded G. P. Abraham Ltd, a postcard publisher, in Keswick in England's Lake District, and became a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society.
In 1870, he married Mary Dixon in Cockermouth, Cumberland.
He had four sons. The two eldest, George and Ashley Abraham, were important popularisers of mountain climbing. Sidney was a bank manager in Keswick, and John Abraham became acting Governor of Tanganyika.
