I consulted with Mary Virginia Swanson for some help with my Fine Art photography business.  I needed advice on limited editions and gaining a wider audience in galleries.  MVS convinced me to do a book on the Wasatch Mountains.  The Wasatch has lately been the site of conflict between developers who wish to expand and interconnect ski resorts and the majority who wish to protect natural areas and wildlife.

My initial idea was to involve other photographers to make the strongest visual statement possible; MVS convinced me that I should use only my photography.  Because of her advice, “Utah’s Wasatch Range: Four Season Refuge” has been a great success.  MVS helped me strike a balance between over 20 essays and 160 of my photographs. She provided help with front and back cover design and gave me the additional courage to market the book on my own without a distributor. This proved to be valuable advice and certainly improved my profit. Because my book was a collaboration with over 20 people,

I got some wonderful advice.  Anyone considering doing a photography book would be wise to have Mary Virginia Swanson on their team.
