Erica Fava's road to a career in fashion photography is an extremely untraditional one. While attending college to study webmastering, Erica Fava began to develop an interest in recreational photography. Six years later, Fava's photography interest ratcheted up when she discovered the alluring and fast-paced world of fashion photography.

Fashion photography has proven to be Erica Fava's niche. Her work has appeared in numerous major publications, including Elle Italy, ID Magazine and Maxim. Erica Fava's selected portfolio shows a shutterbug with an eye for capturing laid-back, serene and sensual images. Her photographs often capture subjects in a pose or gaze that indicates a strong sense of freedom and timelessness. Fava's deft use of natural lighting identifies the tenor and mood of each subject; she acts almost like a second person in a one-person portrait.

Fava recently traveled to New York to do some photo shoots, and judging from her portfolio, it would not be a surprise to see her work spread internationally.
