Len DePas Photography
Overall I am happy with the work of the Photographers Gallery. I had heard nothing but good recommendations, so I decided that it was worth the higher prices to ask them to be my wedding photographer. The quality of the pictures is really good, I just wish that there were more of them. I feel like a lot of pictures are missing and that there was more emphasis on the artistic shots versus the practical shots to remember who was there and what happened on the day. For example, a lot of the ceremony was not photographed. I assume that he was being respectful of the church and the formality of the ceremony to be moving around, which I do appreciate. For the engagement shots, we did not go where we originally planned which was slightly disappointing, but most of them turned out okay. I really appreciated his knowledge of what looked good and the really interesting places to take some fun photos. I only wish that I could afford to get more of them. Unfortunately, the cost to purchase prints and get more albums is a lot higher than I can afford to pay.
Len DePas started his career under the tutelage of some of the most celebrated photographers in New York City. He studied portraiture with the legendary Philippe Halsman and advertising photography with the great Joseph Schneider. He has combined a unique career in fine art and every aspect of photography from still life, portraiture, fashion, advertising, architecture and travel. His photographs have been commissioned all over the world and he has received numerous awards and honors for his work. The images of Len DePas are unsurpassed and steeped in the classical but with stunning clarity and freshness. The result is a simple, refined, and graceful beauty that can be found only in the faces of his subjects. Never one to settle for the obvious, the easy or the expected, he is continually evolving as an artist while refining the innovative techniques he has developed over the years. Among photographers, Len DePas is the standard by which other photographers are judged in Washington D.C.
