Zenfolio | John Arif Verner - Clear Lotus Photography | About


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. Feel free to check out my other photo sites:

Commercial Photography is here.

Portrait and Event Photography is here.

Real Estate Photography is here.

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. 

In the mean time, peruse, wander, and enjoy!
