Venture Edinburgh

At Venture Photography Studio Edinburgh 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.

Meet The Team

  • Chris - Photographer

    Chris is vintage Venture, having been with the company for over 20 years! He loves meeting a diverse range of people in his sessions and capturing images that evoke all the best emotions for years to come.

    When not in the studio you’ll find Chris on the trails and hills on his bike with his children. Chris knows family as well as photography; if your kids play up in the studio he understands exactly what you’re going through and has lots of tricks up his sleeve!

  • Marie – Booking Coordinator

    Marie joined the Venture team in 2021. Bringing a well of knowledge and experience in the customer service industry, she is amazing at finding the best slot for your photo shoot and getting you booked into our diary.

    She loves the variety of people she speaks with and her working environment, colleagues and customers. Marie loves to see the amazing props that people bring along to their shoot after generating ideas together over the phone. 

  • Rhys – Booking Coordinator

    Joining the Venture team in 2021, Rhys is already an expert at chatting to our families to create ideas for their photo shoots and getting them booked in for their session.

    His most memorable booking so far was for a giant orange snake! The images were incredible! He loves the variety of life that comes into the studio, each day is truly different and interesting. 

  • Sarah – Photographer

    Sarah joined the Venture team in 2021. Her most memorable shoot so far has to be the first one she ever did on her own after all of her training. It was so much fun even though a bit of a riot! Sarah loves the creativity of her job and being able to produce amazing images for her customers.

    Her party trick is juggling (badly!)- Maybe ask for a demonstration in your shoot! 

  • Heather – Corporate, Charity & Events Coordinator

    Heather has been a member of the Venture team since 2002. She loves the variety of her role which sees her changing hats every day and meeting lots of lovely customers. Away from the studio, Heather can be found on a ski slope, up a mountain or enjoying the outdoors with the dog.

    Her not so secret party trick is her ability to do the splits!! 

  • Claire – Photographer

    Claire joined the Venture team way back in 2004. She has shot so many amazing sessions, but probably her most memorable was a newborn session with a cat! They say never work with kids and animals… we love the challenge! Her favourite props are teddies, simple but very important to each child!

    When not at work Claire is kept busy at home with her children rarely able to sneak a little chocolate without having to share! 

  • Debbie – Photographer & Digital Artist

    Debbie has been part of the Venture team for almost 15 years. There have been so many amazing shoots, but one favourite that springs to mind involved a massive food fight which was a bit of a riot! Debbie loves photographing pets- they are a huge part of the family!

    In her spare time Debbie likes being on holiday and exploring new places… she is also a demon with a Frisbee! 

  • Ailbhe - Photographer

    Ailbhe has been a member of the Venture team since 2021. She is a massive animal lover and adores any shoot where four legged friends come along! She loves her job at Venture and being involved in making special memories for everyone who walks through the door. Ailbhe’s favourite prop has to be funny and cute hats for babies. Just adorable!

    If she wasn’t a Venture photographer, she would probably be a dancer or work in the fashion industry.
