About Us

Our Story

G . F Smith Photographic design and make beautiful photographic books, frames and mounts. We have been doing so since 1985 from our factory in Hull.

For us every photograph is unique, it’s a wonderful thing, something worth saving and taken care of. It needs to be remembered well and for a very long time.

We make our albums, our frames, folders and mounts with our hands, using only the very best of materials. It’s why we use traditional methods of bookbinding, the finest leathers and our struts are handcrafted.

It’s why we specialise in simple, enduring designs, techniques developed over the course of nearly thirty years worth of experience in the business, and it’s why we use a print technology that is as advanced as it is extraordinary.

About Image 1
About Image 2

Printed on Fuji Crystal Archive paper, by a photographic process considered the best in the world, we make an image into a beautiful object, and then we give it a home. Mounted, in a book, a folder, framed and saved so it is as unique as the image it holds.

A specialised service, our focus is you the photographer. We are not a generic best fit for all kind of company. We respond quickly and creatively to specific individual needs. While we like to think our online service and ranges of products offer something special we are a real people organisation. We answer the telephone or you can use our live chat. We have Paper Consultants who cover the country and are happy to visit you in your studio or home so you can touch and feel the products first hand. A service as unique and bespoke as the products we offer.
