Nigel is our Top Dog, Numero uno or put simply – the studio owner. He has been part of the Venture family since the late 90’s and has a wealth of photographic knowledge… Passionate about the business and committed to customer service, being a Leeds United fan he is well aware of how little things are important to people. He loves driving – whether it’s trying to improve his swing on the Golf Range or on his Kawasaki Ninja (alas the latter is only in his dreams).
Slightly mad, with a wicked sense of humour and a fondness for cheese – meet Alex, our Studio Manager. He joined in 2008, having started as a photographer and has worked his way up, with an award or two along the way. He has a real affinity with people -he gets on with everyone and loves dogs of all shapes and sizes, always looking for a new pooch to fuss. Nobody ever forgets Alex – if your appointment is booked with him you’re in for a fab time! With Alex – everything is indeed ‘Awesome’!
A Star Wars loving creative photographer, one of the team since 2011. In his spare time he enjoys watching football (one of our spurs fans) and shooting some pool with his diamond tip cue. Ben enjoys photographing all groups and ages and he particularly loves taking great shots of toddlers having won three awards in this category at Venture. He is always striving for the best, exploring creative lighting and photography styles to capture your amazing stories.
This muddy field wading, welly wearing festival goer, can be found once a year soaking in a field at Glastonbury. The rest of the time Dee is a photographer with a real passion for getting the best out of people. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face, when it comes to telling your story Dee is Charles Dickens here at Venture and when she’s not in the studio… or a field, you will find Dee throwing some shapes to Reggae and Ska music with mountains of chocolate to keep her company.
Debbie is our Marketing Manager Extraordinaire and is responsible for our relationships with our Corporate Partners and organising our exhibitions around Milton Keynes. Debbie loves watching sport especially Tennis, Athletics and F1 (Lewis Hamilton is one of her favourites) and is also one of the 4 Spurs fans in our studio. She is passionate about Gymnastics, coaching in her spare time and can still do the splits.
Meet Sharon our Dynamic Diary Manager. Sharon will look after you with a smile and a chinwag when she books you in for your session and she will no doubt incorporate doodads, wotsits and thingamabobs along the way. A die hard Gooner, even a spurs fan couldn’t hold that against her as she is the personification of lovely and is prone to giggling fits that are as infectious as any baby’s chuckle. A creative and crafty soul she is always ‘making’,’doing ‘ or ‘smashbooking’.
Underneath her cacophony of cascading curls you will find Emily. She is our own personal Duracell bunny and is always raring to go. When she books you in for your session it’s like having a catchup with a long lost friend. A girl always on a mission, one of her many projects is turning her back garden into the Milton Keynes equivalent of the Eden project. She spends her free time either getting covered in mud with her two boys or deciding which shoes match which outfit with her friends.
Annabelle or “Tinkerbell” as we refer to her as our tiniest member of our family here at Venture. She is full of bubble when you walk through our doors and will greet you with a beaming smile and enjoys chatting to clients as she’s booking them into the diary.
She has an ever growing collection of fabulous tattoos and when not at work will be at the cinema buffing up on the latest releases or at gigs either loving the vibe or indulging in her own passion for photography.
Meet Vibrant Verina our office manager who makes sure that everything runs super smooth and that customer care is a priority and definitely keeps the MD on his toes! Unusually for a woman – Verina loves shoes and has an ever-expanding colourful collection with some killer heels! A rock chick at heart and another of our Spurs supporters here, Verina also has 3 children that have a adorable habit of frequently calling on ‘mum’s taxi’.
Cool Kurtis is a real Family Guy (sing along now!) lucky there is a man who – positively can do – all the things that make us – laugh and cry. He has 3 daughters keeping him in check at home and he is always up to date with technology – the perfect guy to tell your stories from the studio via Facebook. Kurtis is also a great photographer currently studying for his HND at Milton Keynes college – his latest photography project involved his biggest love which is sweets!!
When Gorgeous George is not building a Death Star out of Lego or designing light sabres from loo rolls …he heads our production and finishing department making sure all the final products for our clients are perfect. A techno geek through and through he would get a toaster if it had an apple logo on it. He also passes on his design knowledge as he lectures at MK College.
