Charles-François, ° 28.11.1814 (or 1813?); + 19.10.1866. Painter and photographer. First advertisement in late April 1856: "artist and photographer... photographic and daguerreotype portraits on metal, glass and paper; prices beginning at 3 fr." In 1861 he advertised for "assistant photographers" [operators]. Patent of 1.3.1864 for "an ammonia fumigation apparatus aimed at increasing the sensitivity of photographic paper".

After his death, the company kept the same name under the management of his widow, Marie Elisabeth Angélique Schodts (+ Louvain, 8.8.1870). In 1868 she advertised life-size enlargements from CV negatives. Thereafter, her son-in-law (Jean-)François Meeus continued to run the studio, still under the name of his father-in-law. In 1876 he established himself on his own account acquiring the negatives, while Pierre Charles Louis Verbeke, son of Charles-François, acquired the studio.
