In 1855 Corey was a surgeon and dentist in Liverpool when he delivered a paper, “The Waxed Paper Process,” to the Liverpool Photographic Society. In addition “he illustrated by performing very successfully” during the meeting all the operations involved by developing two negatives that he had taken earlier in the day. Corey was a good friend of George Robert Berry, the undisputed driving force of the society, and he became editor of the Liverpool Photographic Journal and was later secretary of the Liverpool Photographic Society. He displayed examples using Frederick Townshend’s process in the 1854 exhibition at the Royal Institution in Liverpool. Despite all this activity, by the time of the 1861 census he had returned to dentistry, in Oswestry, Shropshire.
