Venture Photography portrait studio in Nottingham closed down?

Driving past the other day, the building they were in has a big To Let sign outside it but their signage is still up and pictures are in the window.  I had a call yesterday from a dad who wanted Work Experience for his daughter, but I’m too busy at the moment, so suggested Venture Photography. However, he said they had closed down.

He asked me about Olan Mills and I told him that they went out of business many years ago, then were revived by some guys and they sprang up in a shop in Huntingdon House, on Huntingdon Street, Nottingham, but they didn’t last too long and were soon closed.

Now Venture have a reputation for very expensive portrait sessions despite their ‘£25 voucher offer’ – see: http://www.ukscrappers.co.uk/boards/showthread.php?t=114829 so maybe the recession has done for them? Their phone number is disconnected.

Anyway, I am always happy to provide some really great family photography or portrait sessions at a much more realistic price – get in touch if you are interested…

Golly Gosh! Gorgeous girls at Miss Mansfield & Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire

Miss Mansfield and Sherwood Forest

Miss Mansfield & Sherwood Forest - Alicia Caley was the happy winner, with Jade Hawkins (left) as first runner up and Nicola Bailey as second runner-up.

What a fabulous, glamourous evening at Miss Mansfield and Sherwood Forest last night!

As official photographer I had my work cut out snapping away at all the gorgeous girls in the final dozen.

Well done to all the girls for doing so well, it takes a lot of bottle to step up on stage and strut your stuff, as well as get grilled on the mike in front of over 250 people!

Eventually the eight judges decided Alicia Caley, my pick for Miss Photogenic was the winner, closely follwed by Jade Hawkins and Nicole ‘Cola’ Bailey – pictured here.
