John Quincy Adams was actually the earliest-serving U.S. President to be photographed; his predecessors, Washington, the elder Adams, Jefferson Madison and Monroe had never posed for a camera. The earliest photo of Andrew Jackson was likely taken in 1844, and the earliest known photograph of Martin Van Buren was likely taken in 1845.
