Our Team

Here at The Framed Picture Company, we are a small passionate team who live and breathe our work. We were Founded by James Fraser, a photographer who believed that important or special pictures deserve high-quality bespoke frames – available and accessible to all.

From there, he built a team of similarly minded individuals, all with a background or interest in photography or framing who put 100% into every step of the framing process, from printing to our handmade frames and mounts, to showcase your pictures the way they deserve. Read all about them and their journey with TFPCo below.
