The Inner Path of Photography

We yearn for the taste of the sacred…and through our cameras discover it, the world, and ourselves.

“Be”

A lone egret steps carefully at sunset, the pink glow and clouds reflected in the still water.



An Evening Meditation
(Master Egret inspires)

Slowly, carefully lift the foot… Hold…

now place it…gently, deliberately…

back into the water.

Pause.   

Breathe.   

Be.

No rush today. May you hold the inner silence.

A Note from Heidi:

July 2019 finds me in St. Petersburg, Florida, discovering new mysteries of the sea and sky, finding ever more companions in creating and exploring the world.  With each move, I experience a combination of the familiar plus the feeling of a foreign country – always new beginnings as well as deepening what has come before.  I look forward to sharing with you more about the inner journey, as well as the images that inspire me. 

“My life is a study in living with impermanence –
each day brings its own subtle or dramatic changes.

The world is my studio.”

Inner Path Photo Seminar at Cotuit Arts

Discover the inner experience of photography with me!

Registration is now open for my 6-week seminar 
“The Inner Path of Photography” 

at the Cotuit Center for the Arts, Cotuit, Massachusetts

January 8, 2019 – February 12, 2019
9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

I invite you to join me in an exploration of the joy and mysteries of being a photographer; to deepen your connection to that knowing, special part of you that still believes in the wonder of the world; and to help you confidently create the images that express what you feel and truly want to “say.”

Drawing on the tradition of Minor White, techniques and philosophies from psychology, Zen, and other contemplative practices, exploring other artist insights on the creative process, and reflecting on our own images and reasons for being drawn to photography – we’ll connect with inner spirit, honor our awareness, feel, shoot, and create – photographs that reflect what we truly want to “say,” and lives of deeper connection.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!
It will be a pleasure to have you in class.

A note from Heidi:

Hello, Kindred Spirits,

Yes, it’s been a while…and so nice to be back and sharing with you again.

Some have been following me on Instagram and Facebook, but if you’ve been away too…welcome back! I’m glad you’re here.

This summer I was immersed in many beautiful places – living and working, exploring, creating, meeting new people, reconnecting with those I’ve loved for years. And enjoying the usual unexpected adventures, of course!

St. Petersburg, FL and Taos, NM were my main homes; Durham, NC, Houston, TX and New York, NY (with stops along the way, yes, I was driving!) added spice. 

And now, as I write this, I’m back for my fifth winter in beautiful Cape Cod (Eastham), Massachusetts. It’s nice to settle in…

Soon you’ll see my new website, with more inspiration, beauty and experiences for you…the culmination of thoughts and dreams from a summer on the road.

But today, I send you greetings from the heart. 

May you take some time to breathe, rest, enjoy the beauty that surrounds you.

I’m holding the glory of love for you…May you receive it.

Heidi

I thank you
