The Cheltenham
Experience

Cheltenham

At Venture Cheltenham we recognise that we all have our own character and passions….. and as we grow up, our interests and experiences gradually shape our character to make us ever-more individual. It’s this that writes the story of you, and your family.

We pride ourselves on using our skills to create stunning images which convey your story.

We’ll take the time to get to know you and the people you love most, so we can understand what makes your family who they are.…that’s why your Venture experience begins long before you reach our studio.

Whether you are experiencing Venture for yourself or buying a Venture experience as a gift we’ll tell your story in a unique way and create a lasting record of those special moments to treasure forever.

Michael S – Owner/Manager

Michael 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!”

Geraldine – General Manager

Geraldine is that mum! The multi-tasker, the one who starts the day building a train set with her toddler whilst sipping an espresso and munching on half a toast. Then sets off for work where she dedicates her time to ensuring all the people she encounters are happy. She is caring, enthusiastic and passionate about the Venture experience. What she loves about the job is the fact that everyday is a day of discovery and learning.

Fran – Photographer

Fran is 5 foot 2 inches full of beans. She likes taking portraits because she loves people and the stories their expressions tell.

She loves her job because 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 like kids again too. When she’s not at work, Fran is travelling the world, or dreaming about it.

James – Photographer

James 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.

Michael M

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.

Mike R

Mike is an easy going member of the team and helps out with a few areas of the business. He loves the variety in his role which includes organising and creating shows, digital retouching and the occasional design consultation.

He is a keen Arsenal fan and is consistently the best player in the yearly Venture fantasy football competition which he wins on a regular basis.

Beccy

Beccy is a quiet and laid back member of the team. She loves welcoming our clients into the studio and following their ‘Venture journey’ from beginning to end and showing of the final product when they come to collect.

Outside of work Beccy is passionate about Music, Art and Design and can usually be found with her nose in a book.

Dav

Dav is the cheeky one! He’s a right poser so if you need any advice on posing he is the man to speak too! The best bit for Dav is when the customers he introduced to Venture, approach him after their experience and can’t wait to show him their images and share their story with him.

Outside of work Dav is really into his Mixed Martial Arts so clearly a man not to be messed with! You’d never know mind because he’s just a big softy.

Mon

Mon loves to meet and greet clients in reception, bringing the land of smiles to Venture Cheltenham.

An expert Thai chef with a passion for art & design and a huge portfolio of selfies!
