We’re so excited to see that ACP is bringing fine art consultant Mary Virginia Swanson to Austin! Her talks on marketing, fine art sales, and book publishing have helped countless photographers find their way in an admittedly confusing industry. We’re especially impressed by the book that she and Darius Himes co-authored, Publish Your Photography Book, and hope she’ll be signing a few copies while in town.
