WHAT PHOTOGRAPHERS ARE SAYING
Mary Virginia Swanson is the greatest. Her knowledge, which she so generously shares, and her “you go girl” encouragement consistently move me and my work ahead by giant leaps. I have never known anyone in the photo world who did not know and respect her. She has a unique way of bringing the right combination of people together. My recommendation: take her workshops, work with her, get to know her, you will never regret it.
