About Gary VanDenBerg
Thank you for taking a moment to visit my website! I am a fifth generation native to Durango, CO and absolutely LOVE where we get to live and enjoy this beautiful area. I have wanted to be a photographer all of my life. When I was a kid, I would turn the pages of National Geographic Magazine and would dream about being able to travel the world, visit beautiful places, and capture amazing photos.
After college at Whitman College and the University of Colorado at Boulder, I found myself working as a Operations and Project Manager in Seattle, WA for major companies like Amazon.com, The Port of Seattle, UPS, and Starbucks.
Eventually, I found myself tired of working in a field of cubicles, so I quit my job, packed my bags and moved back home to Durango, CO and decided to pursue my dream of being a photographer in a field of Daises. Eight years later, I am happy to say that I am the proud owner of one of Durango's busiest and most respected studio's. As I have grown throughout my career, I have committed myself to becoming the best at my craft, and actively participate in workshops, classes, and other methods of on-going education. In 2020, I was recognized as one of the top 100 Photographers in the Nation by Senior Style Guide. The Twelfth Year has recognized me as one of the top 50 "Up and Coming" Photographers in the Nation. My work has been featured in countless magazines and online publications.
It is an honor to have your consideration as being your photographer. Time is fleeting, and whatever I am asked to capture is something that has significant importance in the lives of my clients. Capturing your family, event or business is something that is near and dear to my heart, and I thank you for your consideration.
