Heidi Geldhauser, photographer
Photographer Heidi Geldhauser brings a very particular mindset and technique to the table when shooting food. To Heidi, the opportunity to work with a talented chef resonates with her own artistic training, as color and composition, lighting and mood play such integral roles in documenting food in the careful manner it deserves. Her philosophy: Since this is the only opportunity for the dish to be captured and preserved in image before it is enjoyed by the diner, attention to detail and to the chef’s intention for the food are paramount. Heidi has been shooting at top Atlanta restaurants for several years, working closely with several of the city’s most prominent public relations agencies. Her conversations with chefs over that time have informed her own appreciation of not just how great food tastes, but how it is presented, and how thoughtfully planned and well-executed photography can and should be part of what draws a crowd to a culinary space. An Atlanta native, Heidi attended Atlanta College of Art and struck out on her own right after graduation. Her years of self-employment reflect the combination of free-spirited creativity and business-minded savvy that drives her professional life. When not documenting the Atlanta food scene, Heidi’s photographic specialty is all things weddings.
