Dorse McTaggart was a professional photographer best known for his images of British Columbia and his postcard business, active in the 1960s and 1970s. His photographs were also published in magazines, calendars, and similar publications. He won several awards for his photography and was the first accredited “scenic” photographer in North America. As a tribute to his contributions the Professional Photographers of British Columbia established the Dorse McTaggart Memorial Trophy. This trophy is awarded each year to the photographer who takes the best scenic photograph.
McTaggart was born in Saskatchewan and moved to B.C. in 1949. He established his postcard business, Scenes by Dorse, in 1963. Dorse printed the cards on his own printing press.
