My name is Jeffrey Stroup, and I am a photographer. I shoot fine art, weddings, and portraits.
This blog is about climbing the fence, in the physical sense as well as the artistic sense. I climb fences all the time in order to photograph the typically unseen, forgotten, and off limits locations that this world has to offer. Abandoned buildings, drain tunnels, train yards, bridges, and industrial waste lands are just a few of the types of places that you’ll find me.
I also try to climb the fence in regards to photography. Just like everything else in life, the art of photography comes with rules and barriers. I want to climb those barriers and break those rules so that I can capture life in a way that no one else is. I don’t want to pose my clients in the same posses that every other photographer is using. I don’t want my photos to be generic. I want them to stand out among the growing sea of photographers.
