Bill Fortney Nikon Workshop (with Ricky Skaggs) at the Dollhouse Museum

Norton-Skaggs

 

Bill Fortney brought his Nikon workshop to the Dollhouse Museum. With Bill came country and bluegrass star Ricky Skaggs, seen here in the back row, 2nd from left, with Curator Lori-Kagan-Moore.

The group spent many enjoyable hours working with the various displays. Below you can see examples of their work from that day as well as photos of the group at work.

If you have a photo group of your own, consider a workshop at the Museum!
