It was the most fun day I have had and the viewing was amazing!
The photography team led by Carly, the 2017 Venture Photographer of The Year, love being creative and giving our customers a personalised and memorable experience.
Dan first came to Venture as a client and has never left!! The biggest part of his job is to make all of our external events happen so most of our clients will have met Dan or one of his crazy team before coming in to the studio…Having worked in nearly every department he is also tasked with looking after the studio’s day to day running and seeing the clients through their experience. Dan is fun and approachable, loves getting to know the different families that visit the studio and helping to bring their stories to life. When he’s not at work, Dan loves spending time with his family, a good pub lunch and a long walk in the forest with the dog.
Carly joined the Venture team in the “noughties” and is, responsible for looking after our creative styles. Having a fine art background she loves being able to interact with the clients and capture their different personalities and stories. She enjoys the variety that the job brings, the fact that every day is different and loves the freedom to be creative. In her spare time, she enjoys photography, art, food, wine, anything 1950’s and especially SHOES!! (*she has a “shoedrobe” at home!)
Having graduated from university in 2014 Eleanor has already created some fantastic memories for our clients. The best part of the job for her is getting to know the individual clients, telling their story and capturing great expressions whilst doing something that she loves. She is fun, friendly, easy to get along with and makes a great cup of tea! Eleanor’s passion outside of work is theatre and spends many evenings taking in a show in London’s West End.
Jonathan has been a photographer for most of his life, following in his fathers footsteps and continuing the family business. He loves meeting our clients in both the studio and viewing room, helping them to create their own piece of unique art work. In his spare time Jonathan is a keen golfer and a shining light in the local Am Dram scene….
Clare looks after all of the client orders from the viewing room through to getting the finished product back to the studio. She enjoys seeing all the designs and the meticulous detail that goes into getting each order perfect. Clare’s great sense of humour means she always sees the funny side of life, which she says helps in her job role!! She loves the crazy colleagues that she spends her days with and in her spare time she likes to “spin” in the Gym and spend time with her family.
Jo has spent most of her professional career within reach of a camera having spent 10 years working in the fashion and photography business.
Jo’s role within the studio is to talk you through your experience here with us and to help you get the most, creatively out of the session. If you’re about to make a booking with us, you’re likely to speak to our lovely Jo!
In her spare time Jo likes to visit the gym, spend time with her daughter and enjoy an odd glass of Malbec!
