Since encasing their first piece of art behind glass in 1977, Framemaker’s professional artists and craftspeople continue to transform each print and photo brought into the shop into an artfully mounted creation. Staffers help your treasured images and memorabilia stand out by using regular and conservation-quality frames, matting, and glass in their framing work. Shoppers can bring in their own pieces to be framed or scoop up new works from Framemaker’s carefully curated assortment of posters, graphic prints, and original art created by local artists and spontaneous fission. The shop’s certified conservator can be found carefully erasing scratches and discoloration from old family photos via digital photo-restoration services. Other services such as shadow-box creation and canvas stretching add a unique spin to image display.
Iron Orchid Photography specializes in on-location portraits of kids, weddings, and families. Elegant moments come to life in snapshots set against backgrounds filled with nature and sunlight, capturing the essences and relationships of individuals or families.

At MCM Portraits and Framing, Marcy and Chris Murray draw from years of training in artistic photography, conservation framing, and portraiture as they compose one-of-a-kind landscapes and shadowboxes. Photographers capture striking posed and candid images of babies, pets, graduating seniors, and entire families, and protect pictures for generations with custom-built framing.
We do quality custom framing at reasonable prices. We work with our customers to select framing materials and make the process as smooth and easy as can be. Then behind the scenes (in the back room) we do the best job we can all day to get everything to look stunning. When the customer picks up their work we look for WOW!
Countless trees fly by under your feet as you soar hundreds of feet above the ground. Suddenly, the forest floor below opens up into a gorge. At Red River Gorge Zipline, riders witness this incredible sight on regular canopy tours set amid the picturesque wilderness of Daniel Boone National Forest. The system's ziplines span more than 4,000 feet above the forest canopy, with the longest reaching about 1,900 feet in length. At the end of the tour, dual racing ziplines send riders charging down from more than 200 feet above the ground, and reaching speeds exceeding 50 mph. All of Red River Gorge Zipline's guests are strapped into harnesses for the duration of their tours, while helmet cams document their adventure.
What began as a children's portrait studio in 1985 has evolved into Fotographia—an independently owned photography studio where veteran shutterbug Bob Grichuhin captures images of the whole family. Grichuhin has earned certification as a master photographer through the Professional Photographers of America. His work has been recognized by institutions such as the Maryland Professional Photographers Association, and he has served as a judge for a print competition held by the Delaware Professional Photographers organization.
In addition to family portraits and wedding photography, Grichuhin memorializes the smiles of high-school seniors. He snaps his way through both in-studio and outdoor sessions, traveling to a variety of locations or using the natural lighting in his own portrait park—a garden more floral and inviting than a welcome mat painted with Monet's Water Lilies.
