Durango's Community Photographer...

Without question, if you're looking for the most passionate and hardest working photography team in Southwest Colorado including Durango, Bayfield, Ignacio, Telluride, Cortez, Pagosa Springs, and even Farmington, NM and the rest of the Four Corners area - you've come to the right spot! 

I am Gary VanDenBerg, the owner of Durango Family Photography (DFP) and I absolutely love being able to use the artistic talents of my team (makeup artists, photo-editors, and yours truly) to help our clients capture and create images will last for generations well beyond our time.

I'm passionate about photography, and also about the area we live in.  Beyond accepting commissions from some of Durango's shrewdest families and businesses, DFP is well known for our active community involvement.  From being the official photographer of the Durango Pregnancy Center, to being asked to take the portraits of 9 different Centenarians (people who are 100+ years old) this last spring - you can be sure that when you hire our team, you're also hiring a small business that cares deeply about their community.  Our latest project includes working with the Southwest Women's Resource Center on a campaign called #ProjectBeYOUtiful which is aimed at elevating middle school and young high school girls' self-esteem.  In the last year, we've also hosted interns from Mountain Middle School, Durango High School, Animas High School and Ignacio High School.
