Frameworks Studios was established in 1987 by current owner and principle photographer Gordon Forbes.

We specialise in the areas of bespoke picture framing and professional photography services.

Our team of highly artistic picture framers have over 50 years’¬†experience between them and are always on hand to both assist and guide clients in choosing the appropriate presentation for their artwork.

We offer the highest levels of craftsmanship and good old, value for money service.

Gordon is a fully qualified Master Photographer with the unique ability to create relaxed, natural pictures, whatever the occasion Рfrom an intimate studio portrait to a large family wedding, as you can see from our various galleries.

Give us a call to discuss any framing or photography services – we’d love to hear from you.
