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

  • Alana – Booking Coordinator

    The booking queen! Joining the team in 2005, Alana has so much experience in making your session booking seamless and getting you excited to have your photos taken. She loves that Venture is always evolving with the times and that every day is different. Alana’s favourite prop to encourage during her bookings is food! Who doesn’t love a food fight eh?

    Her most memorable shoot to date involved some pygmy goats. A lot of fun and amazing images- but wow an epic clean up after!

  • 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. 

  • Toni – Booking Coordinator 

    Joining our booking team at the beginning of 2022, Toni’s bubbly personality brings a ray of sunshine into the studio! Toni loves speaking to people on the phone and sharing their excitement for their up-and-coming session! She loves seeing our customers have fun when they visit, capturing their special family moments and making memories at the studio. Her most memorable booking to date involved 3 guide dogs and a baby- the images turned out amazing!

    If she didn’t work for Venture, Toni would most likely work with animals in some way, maybe on a farm! With 3 cats of her own she is a massive animal lover and our pet shoots are definitely her favourites!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!! 

  • Chloe- Production Manager

    Chloe joined the Venture crew in 2019. Ironically, she absolutely hates getting her picture taken but adores seeing other families create memories in the studio. Chloe manages the smooth running of the production department for three studios and looks after the digital artists and the workflow of production. She does a bit of everything around the studio, except taking the actual pictures.

    Chloe’s most memorable shoot would have to be her own when she brought in 2 rabbits, 2 chinchillas, 2 hamsters and 7 mice all at once!!! Total controlled mayhem!

  • Luca – Digital Artist

    Our Italian Stallion!! Luca joined us in 2021 bringing his charm, style and graphical design skills with him. Luca helps out our busy photographers editing their fabulous images and building amazing photographic creations. Luca is a massive movie buff, as well as secretly loving Marvel Comics. If he didn’t work for Venture he would be in the design or movie industry.
