Husband and wife duo, Scott and Donna, are based in Worcester, Massachusetts and are known for their creative eye and technical execution in advertising, editorial, and commercial portraiture. In addition, Erb Photography has made a name for themselves in the hospitality industry, specializing in food and restaurants; their work can be seen on billboards, websites, and even exclusively within Foodies of New England magazine.

In addition to their creative work, Erb Photography has featured the Vaillancourt Folk Art story within Foodies of New England and have visited our  retail gallery in 2012 to photograph the annual Christmas displays.

During their lecture, Scott and Donna will discuss both shoots involving Vaillancourt Folk Art and will discuss what to think about when trying to capture Christmas in photographs. The lecture is free to attend, but registration is requested.
