Walter Woodbury (1834 - 1885) was a British photographer and inventor. In May 1857 he arrived in Batavia where he founded a photo studio together with another British photographer James Page (1833-1865). In early 1863 Woodbury returned to England where he worked on several inventions and technical innovations. One of these inventions was the Woodburytype slide which is a form of photographic glass slide.
