Meet the Team
Michelle & Martin (Studio Owners)
Making marriage work in the office! Always striving for great customer service, Michelle and Martin live and breathe Venture. Since opening the studio in January 2012, they have become extremely proud of their team and the excellent experience that each and every client gets when they walk through our door. It’s a team effort here in Southampton!
One of the first happy voices you will hear when ringing in to book with us. Having just graduated from her Photography degree, Lauren is full of fresh ideas and ready to get you excited for your photoshoot.
Digital Artist/ Production - Alison
The Lego of the office, without Alison we would all fall to pieces. Not only does she help to make your photos look amazing, she deals with your orders and makes sure that everything runs smoothly. Super Al, some may say.
Head Photographer - Wayne Kahn
Wayne has been with Venture for ten years, always developing new photographic techniques and enjoying all the great fun times with all his families he photographs. A massive animal lover, he has photographed cats, dogs,birds,spiders, snakes chickens and ducks! A keen snow boarder and Playstation user and secret nerd :)
Senior Photographer – Dave
Is our most experienced photographer who loves music and is a font of all knowledge when it comes to Movies. His great sense of humour and lively attitude will ensure you will be laughing all the way through the shoot. If Dave weren't taking photographs he would probably be joining the Stones on another record-breaking tour. So look out for our jumping Jack Flash Dave.
Our Northern Lad James is our energetic, Oasis Fan who loves football and when he is not photographing in our studio you will find him at the local football ground taking great action shots with his camera. James loves action films and is a James Bond fan, so don't be surprised if he introduces himself as Marsh........ James Marsh.
