Just had a wonderful Open Studios season and am very excited about the response to the fantastic giclee prints that Blue Lobster has been making for me from my sketchbooks and paintings.
They are such beautiful quality, and lots of people are asking me where I get them made. Thanks for your great work Mick. I am recommending you!

Meet Steve by complete random. I was looking for a local photographer and a few pictures framed.
I can't recommend him enough he's not just a lovely guy he knows his stuff! His photos are stunning and I could spend all day talking and chatting to him and.looking at his work.
He's nice and local and pricing is very reasonable.

I have been using Blue Lobster for years and would recommend it to anyone who needs advice on framing, printing, and expertise on photography. Steve and his sidekick Richie are experts in their field and it is always pleasure dealing with them More...

Absolutely fantastic service from Steve, the new owner of Blue Lobster. Needing a last minute framing job done in time for a birthday, Steve produced a brilliant framing job for a map that I had bought online. Couldn't be happier with the finished product and would recommend to anyone. Thank you again Steve! More...

We took some artwork to Blue Lobster for giclee printing. Steve's expertise and guidance throughout the whole process was invaluable and the results are awesome. Steve went to a lot of trouble to ensure we got the best results - even bringing the proofs to our home, we can't thank him enough and his prices are pretty good too. We will be back, Mary & Bob More...

Steve's work is outstanding and I am thrilled with every picture he has completed. He spends time discussing all options and works with the highest quality materials. He has recently done some superb restoration work for me on photographs dating from the early 1920's and I could not be happier with what he has achieved. I recommend Steve unreservedly and look forward to him doing much more framing and creating of pictures to be treasured by our family! More...

Steve has just framed 5 pictures for me, one oil painting (no glass) and 4 prints (with glass). Steve took plenty of time with me to discuss the best options, the pictures were ready for collection within 5 days and all were framed to a very high standard including a long narrow picture (about 6 foot by 6 inches). I am so pleased to have discovered The Picture Maker and will be recommending him to all all my artist friends. More...

I took in a document I wanted framing to Steve and he copied, printed and framed it to an excellent standard and then even went the extra mile to deliver it personally for me all within 24 hours!! Highly recommend and will definitely use again. � More...

I had a time sensitive project needed to be done urgently. Rang Steve on the off chance, and not only was he highly professional and very approachable. Steves very knowledgeable whilst being able to explain it simply. Steve went above and beyond on this project to ensure it was done on time despite the tall order I gave him. Could not recommend him highly enough. Very reasonably priced aswell More...

Steve framed two precious portraits of my dogs for me. He was so helpful, making sure that the moulding was the right one to set the portraits off, and recommending the right glass. The result is fabulous and you wouldn’t know there was glass there! More...

Got some work done here and awkward wasn't the word due to the size of the piece and even more so the weight but he was great. From the get go it was a very personal service and one where I felt I had the full attention and also the creativity of blue lobster. Ideas were bounced about and a final decision was made. I had previously gone somewhere else just due to my previous location and I wasn't happy. It's a very personal piece and means more in sentimental value and the attitude I recieved was very in personal. Within minutes of walking into blue lobster I felt at ease with the high standard I believed I would recieve from him and also the trust to leave it with him. Great work, great price, bang on!

Thank you so much for your expert advice & patience when I first came into the studio, letting me go through the full options available.

The final presentation of the piece is phenomenal. It's looks so neat & professional letting the framed item really "pop".

Thank you once again for the great service. I highly recommend & will be returning.

Steve is extremely professional, friendly and very approachable. He has huge choice of frames in his studio, as well as some good prints ready to buy. I've had few pictures framed by him and I've found the service outstanding, affordable and fast. Would recommend to anyone looking for picture framing/photography services. I will no doubt be back soon myself :-) Thank you Steve ! More...

Q&A

Knowing how to get the best out of the equipment your using then identifying accurately what the client wants & being able to deliver that & more!

We have brief questionaires (they vary on type of job) to ensure we are fully aware of the brief & you the client knows from our side possible problem areas, that way you will know what to expect from us.

The buzz of doing the shoot is great then delivering the images & getting the "Wow factor" from the client.

Have always been into photography since the age of 14 so I guess it was inevitable.

A professional approach to every job I do, being thorough & diligent before the shoot to cover all eventualities, amiable & easy to work with.
Most important to both parties is that I do not take on a project I can't deliver on.
