Fast food photography for Gordon Ramsay’s eponymous bestseller.

Experience, talent and planning are pre-requisite for any shoot but when things are moving along and several things are happening at once – there’s little room for error. In theory, it might be possible to ask for the omelette to be re-made, but… would you?

And then of course, quite apart from covering what the brief specifically requests if you have someone with the instinctive ability to shoot around the subject and anticipate those opportunistic shots – then that’s your naturally lit cherry on the cake.


About Jill

Jill’s love of photography blossomed from early expeditions with her family, taking pictures of abandoned farms on the North York Moors. She now feels incomplete without a camera and is fascinated by pretty much everything

"Everyone has a story to tell. I am not sure how it happens but when I ask the un-askable questions people open up. Whether I am working with a shy child or the most volatile chef on earth. The more trust you build, the more authentic the outcome.

Working with Antman back-up comes with many advantages: chief amongst them simply being able to concentrate on my job. The ratio of successful shots is testament to this.”
