MVS Marketing Seminar 10/6 in Minneapolis: Last Days to Register

If you are planning on attending my upcoming marketing seminar in Minneapolis, there are a few seats remaining. The seminar runs from 1-5 next Saturday, October 6th, and is being held at the Minnesota Center for Photography.

I encourage you to pre-register to ensure your participation!

From the MCP Website:
“In this seminar, marketing expert Mary Virginia Swanson will provide insights into the most effective avenues for introducing your work to gallery and museum professionals. She will discuss the value of the national and international juried exhibitions, as well as portfolio review events such as FotoFest, Review Sante Fe, PhotoLucida, and key European festivals, as realistic avenues to industry professionals. Important gallery trade show such as AIPAID, Photo LA, and Photo Miami will be discussed from the perspective of helping artists determine which dealers will be most appropriate for their work.

Effective self-promotion materials will be shared with participants, as well as insights into conducting research toward compiling an effective mailing list. Professional practices necessary to successfully present your work will be discussed, as well as “talking points” when given the opportunity to sign with a gallery for representation.

Each participant will receive a copy of Ms. Swanson’s book, The Business of Photography: Principles and Practices (2007) as the seminar workbook.”

To register, contact BETH LEDNER in my office at: (520) 742-6311 to sign up. Discounts are given to students, and to MCP members. I look forward to seeing many of you there!
