At Venture Chichester 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.

Quentin – Owner/Manager

Well Quentin is our loving boss who has a big personality and a heart to match. He joined the Company as our telesales extraordinaire, his angelic voice made it impossible for clients not to book their shoot and he soon became team manager due to his hard work.
Whether you are an employee or client he will be sure to make you laugh. His brain is always on overload as he has so many new and exciting ideas for the future of the business.

Mike – Senior Photographer

Mike has over 25 years of experience in portrait photography, has been a part of Venture since the start in 1999 and has a pile of awards & qualifications to show for it. He is a huge Star Wars geek and will bore anyone into a very long conversation on the subject given half a chance… He spends his free time with his wife & two daughters whilst trying to tire out his energetic English Setter, or he’ll sneak away for a few hours of peace as your classic armchair football fan.

Gail – Diary Manager

Gail is our diary manager and has been with Venture Chichester for 10 years. When she isn’t on the phone, she’s out riding free on her Royal Enfield 500cc motorbike or dreaming about Greece where she used to live and work. She also owns a terrible Terrier aptly named Ouzo, her favourite Greek drink. Give Gail a call to get a date in the diary for your photoshoot & run through lots of ideas for themes or things to bring. Perhaps you have a motorbike too!!

Ben – Assistant Diary Manager

Ben joined Venture last year as part of the diary team and has recently embarked on a psychology degree at the University of Chichester. Ben is a wonderful and loving father to his 2 ginger cats and when he is not running around after their incessant demands he can be found on the cricket pitch either scoring runs for fun or coaching the next generation of superstars.

Jodie – Photographer

Jodie joined the team 4 years ago and is now a fully fledged photographer. Goes into each shoot with passion and comes out exhausted. Always finds the fun in everyone even if they don’t want her to. She is a great team player who loves to tease and rip the rest of the team to pieces. She loves to talk and can usually be heard quoting lines from many of her favourite movies or talking about the next exotic destination to travel to.

Emily – Photographer

Emily is one of our vibrant photographers who talks a lot and eats a lot. She is great with kids as she has the same mentality of a 10 year old. She enjoys travelling and can be found either on a ski slope or on a road trip around Europe. She is very easy going and can get along with anyone and everyone with her relaxed nature. She has great enthusiasm and always tries her hardest to ensure clients have a fun, memorable experience and delivers photographs to show for it.

Simon – Design Consultant

Simon used to own the studio but having unsuccessfully tried to keep Quentin under control for several years sold the business to him in 2011. Since then he has taken up cycling and is now an established MAMIL (middle aged man in lycra). You are most likely to encounter Simon in the viewing room where he uses his 100 years in the business to help our customers choose their pictures.

Babs Photographer

Babs is our very own Snow White, you will love her within seconds of meeting her. She has two young children of her own so is very passionate and loving with any visiting children. She puts all her heart into every photoshoot, be sure to have a fun and ecstatic time with our Babs. When she isn’t making our clients relaxed, looking after her children or making a cracking cup of tea, she can be found with other yummy mummy’s keeping fit.
