Mary Virginia Swanson is photography’s equivalent of the sports world’s triple threat. When speaking with photographers, she helps them find the best and most effective way to share their personal vision with the world.  When speaking with students, she provides a blast of solid, real-world practicality that helps them in their first steps in the photographic world. Most importantly, though, Mary Virginia Swanson is a cheerleader for our medium; helping all of us by showing us what’s cool, what’s working, and making us proud to be involved in this vibrant community.
