I've used Venture Photography and can vouch for the quality of the images - but they are definitely NOT copyright free - the prints come with a copyright statement on the back.

Also you kinda have to sit through a presentation where they try and sell u images. I know a photographer who works there. They also wont take ur photo unless ur well paid as far as I know (lawyer, doctor etc). ie a scruffy s0d like me would be turned away! I personally hate the whole sitting through a presentation and saying "no we just want the free print" - which they obviously dont want you to do! You get prints, but yes the copyright remains with Venture. You pay just for a frame with a photo of your choice from the session.

Great quality - if you have the money, but my source tells me the prints are incredibly expensive, some can cost hundreds and they often average £1000 per presentation in sales after a photoshoot, some really rich people spend tens of thousands. But the images are usually exceptionally good.

Just returned from a Venture presentation to view our photos from the previous weeks shoot.

Incredibly good experience, and although it was all geared to encourage us to 'upgrade' from the complimentary 7x5 print, it didn't feel presurised at all. Beautiful pics, and if you've got the will power to resist the upgrade well worth it. In our case, will-power wasn't necessary because we simply haven't got the £100's they require for even the most basic prints. (If you spend £1,500 you get 10 months interest free credit!!).

Are you sure this offer is for a 10x8? It's usually a 7x5 they offer.

And just to confirm, they're definitely not Copyright Free.

Two points.

1/ As far as I'm aware (maybe russ can confirm this with his friend), the photographers are not on commission. So they don't do a big pressure sale, just go through a fixed sales routine. If you don't want to buy, it's easy to just say no.

2/ If you find one of the stands outside your local supermarket, or at the larger type malls, sign up. You'll 'win' a free 7x5 portrait. Their internal rules appear to allow this to happen once a year. We've got 2 or 3 photos around the place. They really are excellent photos. Their facilities are the best I've seen, HUGE whiteout studios, excellently lit, with the latest digital kit and well trained photographers.

To confirm, this offer is from Eve magazine only, not from the website, and is definitely for the 10 x 8 which is what makes better than usual as it does cost over £150...

the 7 x 5 is always on offer, via the website, and as Kallisti said, usually in supermarkets and little competitions and so forth where you "win" what they always offer.

Edited to say, apparently it is copyrighted so you can't make prints, sorry if that was misleading.

I love this site, I've had some great bargains because of people's finds.

This is a pretty decent offer, aimed at getting you through the door at a photographers studio.

But what is being suggested here is theft, pure and simple.

If you condone taking something without paying for it then that is your perogative.

I am suprised this website allows people to post how to steal.

I meant there was no copyright on the front of it, so you can scan it and upload it and have blow ups of it without a big stamp on the front, so you can make your own prints from it without it marring the image. That's what I did with my 7 x 5 and am going to do with the 10 x 8, to make prints for christmas cards for the American family who never see us.

And that is copyright infringement and against the law. You are not allowed to make reprints yourself whether there is a copyright notice on the front, back or not at all. The image will be copyright of Venture and you are NOT allowed to copy it. Staff at photographic print places are supposed to refuse enlargements etc. of obviously copyrighted material.

By the way, I'm a photographer!

Yep, legally its not allowed, its wrong in the eyes of the law as Venture hold the copyright. That said £150 for a small print seems a tad excessive for my budget!

Yep, legally its not allowed, its wrong in the eyes of the law, but for £150 shouldnt you really own the copyright too? - its a bit of a con otherwise isnt it?


Venture are in business to make money, therefore, signing over copyright means that they would make no further sales on reprints etc.

Yes, it's expensive but you don't have to go there! There are many cheaper places where you may or may not get the same quality.

My wife got us this deal last Xmas, so we did the shoot, and went to the presentation with a firm agreement that we would just take the free picture..............we left with 3 pictures that cost us just over £1k!!!

They are very well done though, spread 0% over 10 months isn't too bad, and everyone that visits the house loves them. They will last years and always bring a smile to our faces.
#11
Sorry, didn't realise you couldn't reprint - in fact it was the guy at the sales marketing thing last time I went who mentioned it to me... but he wasn't a photographer, was just trying to get me to buy more prints. I thought as long as you weren't selling it you could make copies of it for personal use, you paid for it after all.. but obviously I apologise, didn't mean to encourage anyone to do anything against the law.

We got one of these vouchers for a discounted print - the pictures they took were stunning ! We've had portraits done at a studio before, but this was completely different. Nothing was really posed, the kids just played and the photographer steered the shoot very subtly.

When we went to view we were aware of the prices, and had decided to just get one of their printed cushions alongside the discounted print. We found the presentation and the sales pitch were a bit heavy though; they "weren't allowed" to sell us just one cushion without buying other prints too, and I think the cheapest framed print was £200 - they wouldn't sell unframed prints. We did find they were open to some haggling on the prices, so that's always worth a shot.

Great pictures but very expensive !

Youre quite right. The quality is superb, and you can go elsewhere, but this service isnt aimed at your average consumer, its aimed at the very top end of the market, people with a lot of money to spend.

I would say to everyone, only go for it if youre happy to sit through the presentation and say "no" to buying anything. Or only go if your completely loaded. I just spoke to my friend, and she said her biggest sale was one old lady who spent just under £19k in one presentation buying prints for her family. I wish she was my old Aunty!!
