There is no one like Mary Virginia Swanson.  Period.

I’ve had decades of experience as a photographer, author and business owner and I know—and have worked with—talented people around the world.  Mary Virginia Swanson ranks with the best of them, but she’s my go-to person when it comes to questions relating to world of photography.  She knows how to ask the right questions and focuses—quickly, efficiently and brilliantly—on whatever I put before her.  One of the many things I love about working with her is that she can help me with a photography issue I’m struggling with, but she also helps me with problems I didn’t know I had.  I once brought Mary Virginia an early-stage project to look at, and she encouraged me to rethink the title of the project; she was right—and the new title made a big difference in how I, and others, saw the work.  Mary Virginia Swanson has also helped me with questions about licensing photographs and dealing with publishers and contracts—if it relates to photography, she can deal with it.  Working with Mary Virginia Swanson has made me a better photographer, and a more successful one.  She’s also a truly lovely human being.
