Photographer / Director
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 and has developed a deeply visual style of shooting that has become increasingly popular—visceral cinematic imagery capturing the soul of subjects in a non-contrived, yet observational way.
His ever-evolving style has yielded over thirty-five 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.
In 2012, Peter collaborated with Gary Ross as second unit director on the motion picture blockbuster “The Hunger Games,” creating the propaganda film for the fictional “Capitol” in the story.
In 2021 Peter collaborated with director Rupert Wyatt as second unit director on the MBC-produced blockbuster, “Desert Warrior,” in Saudi Arabia - (Releasing late 2022).
