Color and black and white photographs taken in Pittsburgh and beyond.
Creatively, Robert Strovers' early interests were focused on drawing and sketching. It's clear that imagery and composition, as well as texture and detail were all integral components of his art.

The passing of Rob's brother, who was a serious amateur photographer, resulted in his inheritance of his gear and a strong interest in photography as creative outlet.

Robert Strovers Statement:
I’m often asked, “How did you see that?” or “Why did you think that would be interesting!?”…my answer is part of my philosophy - I believe that there are many, many things that can catch ones eye, but too often we see without actually stopping to really look and look without actually seeing what is there. Photographically, my primary interests are in still life – flora, fauna and the natural world are areas I love to explore but my passion lies with the cityscape and all it offers – architecture, architectural detail, bridges, industry and industrial details - areas rife with texture, color and contrast, full of opportunity and subject matter to capture and share with others.

Robert Strovers work can also be seen on the 2008 Town Planner Calendar for Pittsburgh South communities.
