In art school I learned to make photographs, appreciate famous ones and hope for the best. The part I must have slept through was equally important: learning the skills to succeed at the business of being an artist. Mary Virginia Swanson not only wrote the book on it, but mapped the territory that the book is about. Listen to her; read what she writes; follow even a few of her suggestions – and the tasks of marketing your photographs and cultivating the right audience for them will become less daunting. You’ll have time for more of the work you love.
