Welcome to Jeff Poole Photography!
I Graduated from Framingham State University (FSU) in May 2015 with a BA in Communication Arts with a concentration in Visual Communications, and a minor in Studio Art.
As an undergraduate I served as Staff Photographer and Photo Editor for The Gatepost, FSU’s award-winning independent student weekly newspaper, which has exposed me to entertainment, sports, academic, and publicity events. I worked independently to schedule and shoot several events per week as well as collaboratively edit and layout stories and photographs.
I have strong interests in architectural, artistic, event, and portrait photography. My passion is documenting the artistic beauty and historic relevance of abandoned buildings and their contents. Recently I have embarked on a portrait series photographing my subjects partaking in their favorite hobbies/activities and it has been very rewarding.
