Chichester College photography bake-off a rising success

May 16, 2017

Students at Chichester College have teamed up to create a sensational array of images for a local food manufacturer.

They have been working on a project for Midhurst-based firm Pan’Artisan, helping to showcase their products for a range of promotional material.

The project saw catering and hospitality students cook and present the products, supplied by Pan’Artisan, ready for photography and graphics students.

They were then tasked with finding the best way to produce professional images, from setting up lighting to using editing software.

Dan Freaker, art and design lecturer at Chichester College, said: “It was a match made in heaven for us as it gave the students a unique opportunity to work together on a professional, working brief.

“Food photography is not easy, and it was challenging to produce the food on time and to learn how to present it stylistically for promotional materials.

“They all rose to the challenge and we supplied more than 100 images in very different styles to Pan’Artisan, who are already using them!”

Richard Jansen, Pan’Artisan’s managing director, added: “Pan’Artisan has thoroughly enjoyed working with Chichester College on this innovative collaboration.

“We are delighted with the quality of the photographs that were produced and have been impressed with the hard work and commitment that the students showed during their time on this project.

“Pan’Artisan is thrilled to have established this relationship with the College and looks forward to working alongside the photography department again.”

Staff at Pan’Artisan also selected a best image, which was taken by Bulgarian student Hristina Hristova. She was awarded a £50 voucher to be used on art materials.
Several images produced by the students are now featured on the Pan’Artisan website,
