Hi, I'm Phil Block
and you've found your way to my online home at SmugMug.com. You can also visit my previous site, BlockPhotos.com
I've been a photo enthusiast for over 40 years. My fascination with photography began in high school, when I received a Montgomery Wards 35mm rangefinder camera as a gift.
Using that camera and lots of Kodachrome slide film, I photographed much of Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula during my college years at Michigan Technological University
, where I earned my bachelor's degree in Business Administration.
For over twenty years starting in the early 1980s, I focused mainly on the historic lighthouses of the Western Great Lakes. My Great Lakes lighthouse gallery and public slide show Lights of the Lakes
was the result. I presented Lights of the Lakes over 60 times to over 3,000 people during those years. I have converted this program to 100% digital and still present it. To schedule a show for your group, contact me.
An experienced photographer, I've taken New York Institute of Photography's professional photography course, studied photography at Concordia University of Wisconsin, and have attended various photography workshops. I'm actively involved with two southeast Wisconsin photo enthusiast groups: the Milwaukee Photo Pictorialists
and the Wehr Nature Center Camera Club
I am retired following a career in management, corporate training, and technical communications. My background includes web site design and development, business analysis, technical writing, training, and marketing communications.
