Peter Rodger grew up looking through a camera lens. As a teenager, the award-winning British director and photographer honed his skills by assisting his father, George Rodger, the renowned photojournalist and co-founder of Magnum Photos. After completing his education at England’s Maidstone College of Art, his skill with the lens has made him one of the most sought-after talents in both the European and United States advertising markets.
Peter has shot print and commercial campaigns in over sixty-three countries, for such diverse clients as Mercedes, Save the Children Fund, City National Bank, Coca-Cola, Toyota, Microsoft, Infiniti, Lexus, Buick, Acura, Honda, Volvo, Land Rover, Fendi, Xavier Laurent Perfume, Apple Computers, University of Houston, Kodak, Freixenet Champagne, General Electric, Audi, Ecolab, Nalco, Gazprom, Ford, Canon Cameras, Marriott Hotels, Adventist Health, Chloé, Allscripts, Morocco Tourism, Mohammed V Foundation as well as many others.
Peter has developed a deeply visual style of shooting that has become increasingly popular—visceral cinematic imagery capturing the soul of performance in a non-contrived, yet observational way that makes his filmmaking epic to watch but at the same time engaging with a natural, energetic execution.
His ever-evolving style has yielded over 35 awards as best director from The Houston International Film Festival, Chicago International Film Festival, The Telly Awards, The Mobius Awards and the US International Film and Video Festival.
Peter is currently attached to two motion pictures and two TV series he has developed.
