About Ken and Barb Wardius
First bitten by the “lighthouse bug” decades ago in Door County, Wisconsin, Ken and Barb Wardius began
accumulating Wisconsin lighthouse photographs and explored the history of these marvelous maritime beacons.
Lighthouse photography and research are specialties the Wardius’ take particular pride in. Later this would
lead to the publication of four books involving Wisconsin lighthouses as well as lighthouse programming.
Based out of suburban Milwaukee, Ken and Barb are sought after lighthouse authors and speakers. Their lecture
presentations are ideal for the lighthouse buff, nautical enthusiast and anyone who enjoys breathtaking
photography. Their rates are reasonable and their schedule is flexible.
The Wardius’ also have a wide-ranging photographic collection of Wisconsin lighthouses. Their photos have
been published extensively in books, magazines, calendars, corporate reports, brochures and on the internet.
All books, lighthouse programs and images are available for purchase.
