We visited Venture studio in Newcastle for family portraits. I was aware that Venture were more expensive than others, and having been to a PixiFoto in the last 6 months and had a fabulous time and great pictures, I was expecting even more from Venture due to the cost. What I found were pushy staff and a hard sell. The pictures themselves were good, but I'm afraid we left (eventually) without buying anything as the prices were just ourageous.

My family and I visited a Venture portraits franchise to have our portraits taken in Warrington; only last week and to be honest I was taken by surprise considering what I have encountered with the online reviews. A friend recommended them as we were looking for a family portrait, a family portrait with everyone that is, James my youngest was behaving like a typical 3 year old racing around and had no intention of standing still. Patience was needed and I have to say the staff at Venture portraits were great with him as they were with all of us. The setup was perfect, great studio, warm and friendly staff and encouraging - even with James! I dare say we could have found somewhere cheaper but a friend recommended them so we decided to go and I'm glad we did. The Venture portraits results were very good, I probably spent more than I should have, but the photography will last a life time which is what its all about - isn't it? As an experience I couldn't find fault with the Venture portraits service, I've done a few weddings myself, I wouldn't say I'm an expert but more an overly-keen amateur. I could have done our own but sometimes its nice to relax infront of the camera and have the weight of responsibility removed. If your thinking about it, then I'd recommend them, yes Venture portraits probably do cost more than a few others and if cost is an issue then shop around. The Venture portraits we have, were happy about.
