Strohl is known for his landscape photography, particularly his photo series entitled "Highlands of Iceland." Strohl's work captures the landscape of various corners of the world, including Iceland's black sand beaches, glacier-cut fjords, and jagged mountains and cliffs.[10] In 2018, he captured an image of a surfer riding waves surrounded by snow and ice in Alberta, Canada.[5] His style draws inspiration from the wildest alpine environments, blurring the lines between humans and nature to create visual experience.[11] In addition to his outdoor work, Strohl also does commercial photography , including fashion, lifestyle, and product photography.[12]

In 2023, Strohl was added to Canon's Explorer of Light program as a mentor to educate visual artists. [13]
