MVS to join Faculty of James Estrin’s “EDIT-SEQUENCE-PRESENT and PROMOTE” Workshop on June 10 & 11, NYC

This will be my first time teaching with the great JAMES ESTRIN, NYT photographer and co-editor of the Lens Blog at his weekend-long crash course covering the basics on polishing and presenting a body of work. This course typically has two guests and the fact that SARAH LEEN, Senior Photo Editor at National Geographic Magazine is also a guest will be memorable.  I will be participating all weekend, and responsible for the “Present and Promote” component. Join us!  We meet each day at CUNY Graduate School of Journalism in midtown Manhattan.  More information and registration link here:

July 23, 2017toJuly 28, 2017

MVS will once again be teaching her workshop “MARKETING YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS” at the Santa Fe Workshops.  Beginning on Sunday evening July 23rd and concluding Friday evening July 28th, this is the course description from the SFW catalogue: “The audience for photography has grown substantially in recent years, and this translates to increased opportunities for print sales and licensing. Over the course of five days, Mary Virginia discusses the value of investing in juried exhibitions, portfolio reviews, and other industry events, and how producing targeted publications can advance your career. Participants develop an understanding of issues surrounding commercial image licensing and how to assess value for these rights.

Mary Virginia discusses the value of investing in juried exhibitions, portfolio reviews, and other industry events, and how producing targeted publications can advance your career. Participants develop an understanding of issues surrounding commercial image licensing and how to assess value for these rights.

We explore the roles that galleries, art consultants, and online sales venues play in the fine art collecting market. In addition to classroom sessions, Mary Virginia leads participants on special site visits with industry professionals, including a gallerist, a museum curator, and professionals involved with photography books. Lastly, she conducts a one-on-one session with each participant providing “next steps.”

If you have reached a place of competency and confidence in your craft and vision it’s time to take your professional exposure to the next level, under the guidance of a trusted consultant.”
