Welcome and thank you for visiting my photography gallery

In his book, Stillness Speaks, Eckhart Tolle states, "The division of life into past, present, and future is mind-made and ultimately illusory. The only thing that is real, the only thing there ever is, is the Now."

For me, the experience of photography is an immersion into the present moment. The past is but a memory and the future has yet to unfold. Like a mirror, the photograph reflects a unique point in time – never to be the same. I am inspired by the aliveness of light, the vibrancy of color, and the beauty of nature. By journeying below the surface, I try to find the essence within each image. That's where I hope we can meet.

In addition to my Fine Art photography, I am also an Exclusive Stock Photographer with Getty Images and iStockphoto.

More of my portrait and event photography can be found on my Clear Lotus Facebook page.

We are also available for commercial  assignments such as events, portraiture, real estate, antiques and product photography. Our home base is in the beautiful Hudson Valley town of Rhinebeck, New York. Please check our commercial work here.

In the mean time, peruse, wander, and enjoy - and please sign my Guestbook!
