20 years of photography @ Venture

Experienced and passionate photography from Venture Studios…

Did you know that Venture Studios have now been established for over 20 years?

A lot can happen in 20 years! In some ways it feels just like yesterday, but when you think of some of the major events that have happened during that time, you do realise how long it is. Just a few to trigger your memory are:

  • 9/11 in 2001
  • The launch of Facebook in 2004
  • The London bombings in 2005
  • Apple released the iPhone in 2007
  • The eruption of Eyjafjallajokull volcano in Iceland, 2010
  • The wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, 2011
  • The London Olympics 2012
  • Poppy display at the Tower of London, 2014
  • Grenfell Tower fire, 2017

These are only a small handful of events from these 20 years. It can be difficult to believe how long ago some of them are. Some are tragic, others revolutionary, and still others are causes to celebrate or remember.

All the above events have been captured in iconic photographs. Indeed a couple of them – the iPhone and Facebook – have also been major contributors to the growth of photography. Around 85% of all photographs are now taken on Smartphones; and 300 million photographs are uploaded to Facebook every single day!

None of this would have been conceivable 20 years ago, but is now an accepted part of our daily lives.

So much has changed for Venture Studios during this time as well. Over the past 20 years we have photographed over half a million families and created over 2.5 million items of framed art. We are accredited by the British Institute of Professional Photography and have also been recognised as Franchise of the Year by the British Franchise Association and been awarded Superbrand status.

What have been the changes in your life over the last 20 years? And what do you hope to happen for the next 20 years?

If photography is your passion and you feel that it is time for a change of direction, then why not consider becoming a Venture Studios franchisee? We are continuing to expand, and in addition to our 17 UK studios, we now have studios in the USA and Hong Kong.

Venture Studios offers franchise opportunities that are based on our tried and tested business model. It is built on four key pillars:

  • market-leading photography
  • world-class customer service
  • effective routes to market
  • a unique and contemporary range of products

So if you are potentially interested in a franchise opportunity with Venture Studios, and would like to be part of a network of state-of-the-art studios and a well-known, established brand, then request a Venture Franchise brochure to find out more.

To get an idea of the quality of our work, take a look at some of the fabulous photos we created in 2019.

Then multiply that by 20 to start to see what Venture Studios is all about!

What will the next 20 years hold for you? In 2040 when you look back on your life today, will there be joy or regret? Why not enjoy the next 20 years of photography with Venture Studios, creating beautiful #memoriesforever?
