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.
My husband loves to cook and was so excited to get this book. We've tried a few of the places in this book and he is looking forward to trying their recipes and others. If we like the recipes from the book, we will definitely be interest in going to try other items on these restaurants menus. -Krys
Great book for foodies who not only love new recipes but also like to have a little knowledge about the history of Atlanta's best restaurants. For me it was also nice to know the owner and chef at each restaurant. This book makes a great gift for friends or business associates because it's unique and looks great on a coffee or side table. I've given several to clients and they love it. -Dale

This book is perfect for a new comer to the city and one who has lived here for years. -Julie
