Mary Virginia Swanson is an acclaimed photographer whose endeavors within the field expand to education and entrepreneurship. After earning her MFA in Photography from Arizona State University in 1979, Swanson held photography-centric roles in both California and New York City. In 1990, however, Swanson returned to Arizona (where she remains today) and created her own photography license managing agency called Swanstock. Now, Swanson works as an independent art consultant, teacher, and non-profit advisor.

Among Swanson’s most recent accomplishments is the 2023 release of the third edition of Publish Your Photography Book, which she co-authored with Darius Himes. Published by Radius Books, Publish Your Photography Book offers practical insight as to how one can publish a photography book of their own and even includes a removable workbook to further aid in the process. Purchase Publish Your Photography Book here.
