Planning is underway for my 2017 Master Class, taking place mid-January in beautiful Tucson (application required).  This course is ideal for the artist serious about their practice and the advancement of their career in the fine art market.  Lectures by myself and our invited guests, along with strategic site visits provide a realistic window on the field today.  Apply soon; space is limited.

“Attending Mary Virginia Swanson’s workshop was invaluable for me.  Her deep knowledge of the fine art photography market is exceptional with few peers.  Every element and topic is a wealth of knowledge providing a detailed road map of what and how to advance one’s artistic career.  Mary’s insight is focused, clear and results oriented.  Attending the workshop was an eye-opener for me on the practicalities of marketing my own artwork.  Mary’s workshop is a must-have for anyone serious about advancing their career.  – Ken H.
