I have closed applications for this year, and urge early applications for my January 2018 Master Class. As always, priority given to alumni of this special course. We will announce the details of my forthcoming weekend-long workshop “MARKETING YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS: Best Practices for Artists” at Aperture Foundation later this week. Class size will be limited; to be notified when registration opens, email email@example.com. I look forward to working with you some time in 2017!
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.
