Wednesday 4th July 2018 - Behind the Scenes with Venture Photography

Venture Birmingham:  400-410 New John Street West Birmingham B19 3PE


For our new Midland Regional programme we are delighted to have been invited to the Venture studio in Birmingham for a behind the scenes look at the Venture Photography operation.

We’ll hear from four of Venture’s key employees, each working in a different part of the business, but each a vital link in the chain.

  • Mike Wilson is Venture’s Operations Director and is responsible for the commercial oversight and financial health of Venture’s UK and international studios. A creative business needs to be supported by sound commercial foundations to help it thrive, Mike’s leadership provides those foundations for Venture’s day to day operations.
  • Alicia Hall is Venture’s Creative Director. She is tasked with maintaining and evolving the technical and creative quality of Venture’s team of photographers and retouchers. We can all struggle to keep on top of our own creative development at times, so nurturing and inspiring 50+ photographers is a huge responsibility.
  • Jessica Wilkins is the current Venture Photographer of the Year. Based in Liverpool, Jessica’s energy and creativity are essential to enable her to excel in the non-stop bustle of a high street studio. Both photographers and front-line customer points of contact, Jessica and her photographer colleagues are arguably Venture’s most valuable asset.
  • David Nield works within Venture’s print operation Premier Image. All the sales and photographic efforts are wasted unless the final product meets the customer’s expectations. David’s experience with high-end file preparation and printing techniques ensure that standards don’t fall at this final hurdle.
Whatever segment of this diverse industry you work in, you’ll be sure to come away with some ideas that can be implemented within your own business. An evening not to be missed!
