Wonderfoods for Kids // Jill Mead

How do you get kids to eat healthily? How do you get them interested in trying something new?

Brown rice and raw carrot rarely cuts it, but ‘Blubbery Fool’ and inspiring, fun images go a long way towards removing an excess of roughage.  Following on from the success of Wonderfoods by Natalie Savona, on this commission the brief allowed for an even more light-handed take.

The use of any and every available nook and cranny, judicious use of a favourite ten year-old 60mm macro lens and a way with people – produced a masterful edit. Working with children (but not in this case animals) is supposedly best avoided but on the evidence here we think it demonstrated that it can most definitely bear fruit.

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.”
