A meeting with Mary Virginia Swanson is your moment to learn  what it is to be a successful photographer today and the chance to  ask all those questions brewing in your psyche. It is a  compassionate talk, rare in this business.   It is not only that she  knows everyone but she understands their hopes and dreams and helps them fulfill them. To my surprise Mary Virginia counseled that she wanted to streamline my promotion so I will have time to shoot. That demonstrated to me how much she respects photographers and her unique understanding of our natures.She sets you at ease and allows you to experience the true joy and  privilege of being able to take pictures that speak to our audiences. Unique in her overview, she is an ambassador for the photographer, comprehending our needs as well as those who curate. Her grace, civility and enthusiasm light up any room and she represents the best of who we are or can be.
