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.

The Greenwood Family
- Fantastic! We did not know what to expect, but the images are way beyond what one could have expected!
The Van den Bos Family
- We are so pleased with our pictures! They have caputured our family just as we wanted: relaxed and happy. The shoot was really enjoyable. Not long after having my daughter, I wasn't really keen to have my photo taken but Clare made me feel confident and relaxed. At our viewing I was brought to tears. I was so overwhelmed. Clare captured stunning pictures of our family that we will treasure forever. Thanks xx
- Venture Liverpool, you are fantastic! May I express my sincere appreciation and eternal gratitude for the wonderful experience given to us for my beautiful mum Lindy Lou, myself, my sister Debbie and my daughter Renee. We all adore our portraits and they now have pride of place in my home. These pictures have allowed us to remember our Lindy for what she was, a truly beautiful lady.
The Story of an Unforgettable Girls’ Day Out
- The shoot was fun and far more enjoyable and relaxing than we expected. The photos were incredible and surpassed our expectations.
- We really really enjoyed our photo session! The photographer put us as ease and the photos he took were amzing - it was difficult to choose our favourites. I would definitely recommend photography from Venture Leeds to friends.
