Cambridge Regional College put Encocam celebrations in focus

Wednesday 20 June 2018

Students from the Huntingdon Campus have used their camera skills to record a special event for a local company celebrating 30 years of innovation in business.

Joseph Coles and Karl Roberts, Level 3 Photography students, were invited to attend the anniversary of Encocam, a world-leading engineering company based in Blackstone Road, Huntingdon. The students, based at the college's Huntingdon Campus, were tasked with capturing a technical conference and celebration event for the company's Cellbond brand, which provides passive safety testing products and equipment within the automotive sector.

The event was held for Cellbond's customers, suppliers and partners, and focused on the future of the automotive safety testing industry. It took place at one of the company's four sites, where the factory floor was transformed into a temporary conference venue. Visitors had the chance to hear keynote speeches from industry leaders, tour the factories and engineering facilities, visit exhibition stands and see demonstrations of the company's unique capabilities.

Joseph, from Peterborough, and Karl, from Somersham, worked to a live employer brief for the first time. They commented: "We really enjoyed the experience and hope to use some of the photographs in our portfolio work. There is no substitute for hands-on experience and we will definitely be able to draw on this in our future careers."

Kristina Marusic, Marketing Executive at Encocam, was delighted with the results of the students' work, saying: "We are extremely grateful to Cambridge Regional College for providing such talented photographers to record our event. They did a fantastic job and all our staff and customers will be able to look back at a memorable day."

Recording the recent Encocam event is the latest in a line of successes that photography students from Cambridge Regional College have achieved. Students recently contributed to a special retrospective photography exhibition entitled ‘Cambridge: Then & Now', in tribute to the heritage of Cambridgeshire at the Museum of Cambridge.

A centre of vocational excellence, Cambridge Regional College continues to grow and expand its role as a major seat of learning in the East of England.
