Meet the TeamAndyWhether Andy is outdoors enjoying a round of golf or at work creating a beautiful design for a clients home you can be sure he is putting all his energy and enthusiasm into it.What he loves most about his work is seeing the amazing reaction every time a family sees their Venture images for the first time. ElliotElliot is the Digital Artist at Venture Cheltenham. Usually easygoing and laconic in the studio, and likes to listen to (and annoy the rest of the studio with) heavy metal whilst working on your images. He loves that the team can capture beautiful moments in the camera room that the client can cherish forever. He finds retouching an inspired way to take a great image and develop it into something perfect.
Outside of work Elliot loves to relax playing guitar, reading a book or catching a film. He also loves riding the emotional rollercoaster that is being a Spurs fan FranFran is 5 foot 2 inches full of beans. She likes taking portraits because she loves people and the stories their expressions tell.
The best thing about her job is that no day is the same and every session is a beautiful new world to capture. Fran also loves making kids giggle and making grown-ups feel again like kids.
When she's not at work, Fran is travelling the world, or dreaming about it
Then sets off for work where she will dedicate her time ensuring all the people she encounters are happy. She will do everything she can to make their day a better one! She is caring, enthusiastic and passionate about the Venture experience. She sees a Venture as capturing more than a portrait, it is about sharing those very precious times with your loved ones and recording them in the form of a portrait. A Venture of your family should make your heart melt and smile when you look at it. What she loves about the job is the fact that everyday is a day of discovery and learning.
Outside of work, she loves her time with her family. This year, she feels like her spare time is all about GCSEs as her teenage daughter is in that full on year of her life... Geraldine loves relaxation as a way to refill herself with energy. She practices yoga and Pilates and whenever she can she will retreat to a quiet spot in the Pyrenees breathing pure air and listening to pure silence. Elle aime aussi parler le français, sa langue maternelle et n'hésite pas à en parler d'autres quand elle en a l'occasion. JamesJames is charming and eccentric and is very passionate about photography. He loves to make sure that all his clients get the best images they've ever seen of themselves.
When he is not shooting he is challenging the pro's on the golf course or out looking for local antiques to add to his collection
She's chatty, fun and friendly and really enjoys getting to know people, finding out about their passions to capture their personalities and portraits.
The best part of her role is getting to talk to a wide range of people from couples who do break-dancing to families with 10 children and 4 dogs who all love different football teams! Michael SMichael is a passionate, driven individual with a serious competitive streak.
He enjoys capturing portraits as he loves finding out about peoples characters and working in an environment where the number one goal is to make people feel and look great!
Outside of work Michael is always on the Tennis court pretending to be John McEnroe "the ball was on the line!"
Michael is a fun loving and passionate individual; a Venture veteran with experience across the photographic, design and sales departments. His love of the Venture experience and photographic style motivates him to always try and help every client achieve their goal.
He is a keen Arsenal fan and is also consistently the best player in the yearly venture fantasy football competition which he wins on a regular basis
She just loves finding more about people and getting the best out of them, even the most camera shy, to ensure she can get them images of their family that capture their soul and that they'll cherish forever.
Photography and people are her passion. So to do it for a job and work with people and their closest in their lives, what could be better.
Passions outside of work: Fiance, hockey and her cat, Rox OliviaOlivia is a fun and interesting member of the team. She likes to have a laugh and make cups of tea!
Olivia enjoys the creative side to portraits and capturing the cheeky side to people. She loves the joy of seeing happy customers as they go through the Venture 'journey'. Making their experience with us as personal as possible.
