Venture South Woodford

Venture South Woodford is one of the original Venture Studios that founded the Venture brand back in 2000, having previously belonged to the owners’ father, Ken Bray. So it has actually been a family photography studio since 1964!

When the opportunity came to join Venture and help create the brand it was grabbed with both hands!

Still very much a family run studio, we pride ourselves on customer service, giving a great interactive, fun experience and producing great photographic art for our customers to enjoy, cherish and smile at for years to come!

We love, families, children, babies, couples AND pets and can’t wait to welcome you to one of our state of the art studios!

(Please note that here is a car park (free at the weekends) behind Tesco Express located at 253-269 High Road)

What our customers say...

  • "The Shears Family"

    "We first went to Venture four years ago for a bump to baby shoot. We were made to feel so welcome; the photo shoot was very casual and we pretty much ended up laughing the whole time!"

  • "The Patel Family"

    "Eleanor at South Woodford is so talented at capturing the right moments on camera and putting everyone at ease. We now have a wonderful piece of art that we will cherish forever."

    "Our photographer was amazing! Isobel was patient, understanding and wanted to know more about the twins, to make the shoot so personal. The Leeds studio couldn’t have been more welcoming."
