What to know before you visit
Attention, shutterbugs! Do we have an opportunity for all of you amateur photographers! Whether you received a new digital camera for Christmas or have been looking at the world through a lens for a long time, you can now get instruction from the pros.
On July 19 and 20, AiG’s own award winning staff photographers, Marty and Deb Minnard, will conduct a two-day photographic workshop open to anyone age 14 or older.
