Marty and Deb (1)
After the success of our photography workshops this year we have scheduled a full slate of programs for 2010. These workshops are led by award winning photographers Martin and Deb Minnard who serve on staff at the Creation Museum. The Minnards bring more than fifty years combined experience in general, wedding, portrait, commercial and aerial photography to their teaching task. Deb applies her art background to her photography. Marty is accomplished in commercial and aerial photography. For ten years they operated their own full service studio in Michigan which they left behind to come and work at the Creation Museum. Currently as a “retirement career” they run the Foto FX souvenir photo service at the Creation Museum. In addition to those duties, Marty and Deb produce fine art images of the museum and its grounds for Answers in Genesis publications.
