An accomplished explorer, photographer, creative director, speaker, and author
Drawing inspiration from the wildest alpine environments, Strohl is as comfortable in the northern Rocky Mountains of his home in Whitefish, Montana, as he is diving off the shores of icy North Atlantic archipelagos. The result is an immersive visual experience that blurs the boundaries of life and work and humans and nature. His timeless style and eye for subtle, authentic moments transcend industries, from local ski brands to the world’s foremost watchmakers. Alex is based in Whitefish, Montana—but spends most of his time on the road with his life partner Andrea Dabene.

Keeping Iceland active since 1926
For nearly 100 years, 66˚North has made life and activity possible where otherwise there would be none. The Icelandic weather is infamous for being extremely unpredictable, offering different combinations of rain, wind, snow, and sun every day. We’ve been challenging it for over nine decades, so we know a thing or two about versatility.
Our philosophy has always been that weather shouldn’t be an obstacle to going places. Our clothing is designed to be comfortable in everyday life but at the same time keep you prepared for the worst. 66° North is committed to creating high-quality products for versatile use with the mindset that they should last. Through the longevity of design, function, construction, care, and desirability, 66˚ North expects our products to reduce the need for long-term consumption, whether bought new or second-hand.
66˚ North is a carbon-neutral business.
