There is nobody who knows the photography industry better than Mary Virginia Swanson. Within minutes of meeting her at a portfolio review, I realized how invaluable her insight is. She subsequently helped me put together a compelling book proposal, which eventually led to my book being published last year. Each time I speak with her she offers spot-on advice that helps move my career forward. She is a pleasure to work with and a wonderful person to know.
