The most amazing thing about working with Mary Virginia Swanson is that she takes the time to understand who you are, as an individual and as a photographer, as well as what you are trying to achieve with your work. Then, she quickly gets down to business, whittling her vast knowledge of the field into a personal plan for you. She has helped me stay focused on an authentic path, even nudging me back to myself when I have gotten distracted and overwhelmed. She is optimistic, constructive, and – reassuringly – there when you need her. She is an amazing resource to all of us.
