Donna Dufault, a photographer from Worcester, is another one of the fantastic Massachusetts artists to recently join our program. Donna and her husband, Scott Erb, run a commercial photography business. They focus primarily on advertising, editorial, commercial portraiture and product work with a specialization in food, restaurant and hospitality clients. Together Donna and Scott’s photographic expertise, creative eye and stalwart professionalism keep their happy clients coming back again and again. Their exceptional work has earned them the title of “The Best Photo Studio in Worcester” by Worcester Living Magazine three years in a row!
Donna has over 20 years of experience working in the photography industry. She graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology with her BFA in Fine Art Photography. She has worked at some of the best photographic printing labs in the country and with some of the top art photographers in the world. This experience, coupled with years of gallery management, running art marketing groups and co-coordinating photo workshops has given her a full perspective into the fine art photography world. Donna provides multifaceted support to Erb Photography in marketing and business development as well as serving as studio manager and second shooter.
Donna and Scott are also active members of the Worcester arts community. In 2003, they founded the Worcester Alliance of Photographers, which now has 800+ members! Allied photographers might commingle online (they have active discussion boards and forums), at monthly meetings (with photo related topics and a good deal of socializing) or on their outings (click and shoots, photo lectures, group discussions, trips and workshops). Scott and Donna share their specialized talents by leading workshops on food photography, portfolio preparation, and lighting techniques. As a group, the Alliance has a gallery space at City Hall. The shows rotate every 3-4 months based on a city wide theme, keeping City Hall a dynamic place for new art!
Lately the dynamic Erb duo has turned their attention to a new project that combines their passion for food, photography, and travel. “Foodies of New England” is a high-gloss, beautiful publication about cuisine throughout New England, focusing on featured chefs, restaurants, farms, culinary trends and other food-related organizations and happenings, accented by scores of delicious and easy-to-follow recipes in each feature story. Donna and Erb have been contributing to the magazine since its inception, providing all of the photographs and design content.
