“In this comprehensive workshop, respected advisor Mary Virginia Swanson will provide participants with a broad overview of the market for fine photographs today.  Through information provided in illustrated lectures and examples of “best practices”, Mary Virginia will impart a wealth of information on the path to finding a receptive audience for your work.  Interested participants are also encouraged to learn more and consider attending Doug Beasley: The Emotional Landscape July 24 – 28, 2019.

Topics covered:

  • effectively editing your work to its strengths
  • understanding grants and other sponsorships to complete projects
  • gaining awareness on finding public, private and institutional collections that are most likely interested in your subject(s)
  • identifying and maximizing every exhibition opportunity
  • assessing retail vs online sales environments, as well as appropriate editorial and licensing placements
  • strategizing marketing your work to its targeted audience in print, online and through social media platforms
  • determining whether investing in competitions and/or portfolio review events will be an asset to your path to those who can make a difference in your career

In addition, Mary Virginia will allocate time to work individually with each participate to discuss their project and prioritize their ‘next steps’ (all students are encouraged to observe and learn from the examples of others).

Our unique classroom environment offers us a rarified learning space in which to consume a wealth of information from an expert in the field and participate in daily dialogue with like-minded practitioners.
