Meet the team

  • Richard - Studio Director

    Richard is originally from South Africa, he lived in several countries before he found his home in the US. Both his creative and entrepreneurial spirit developed early when at 5 years old he would trade drawings he did of Superman for other kids candy. Trained as a fine art painter and sculptor, Richard began his photography career as a portrait photographer and Art Director before opening Venture Studios in Caldwell in 2018. When he’s not in the studio, he can be found tearing around the North East on his Harley or painting in his home studio.

    His main passion is his energetic young daughters who keep him young and on his toes. He knows all the words to ‘Let it go’.

  • Keith Agnello-Photographer / Design Consultant

    Keith is a New Jersey local, whose passion for photography was sparked when he first stepped foot in his high school’s dark room. He has been fascinated with analog processes ever since and continued his formal education in photography at RIT in Rochester, New York. After university, Keith took part in a once in a lifetime solo trek across the U.S via bicycle with his camera close at hand. The abundance of kindness from strangers he encountered on his travels is a continuing inspiration to keep shooting, meet new people and give back wherever he can.

    He continues to freelance product and event photography today and he was part of the opening team for Venture Caldwell in 2018. When he is not in the studio, you can find him tending to his flock of chickens and backyard garden with his partner Tani and his stepson Hudson. Or gearing up for a day of cycling or snowboarding depending on the time of year.
