Summer School for my sophomore high school year I enrolled in two classes which changed my life: photography and typing. Photography gave me a voice and a career; typing just made my life easier. I became the High School yearbook photographer at 15 and have been shooting ever since.

We do not get the same moment twice in life. Life is made up of moments, and these moments pass quickly. To capture them in pure, honest form is a passion for Jim.
Jim believes the camera provides a window into our diversity and helps us break down the barriers of misunderstanding that divide us. Everyone has a unique story to tell, and everyone is entitled to have their story told with respect, integrity and understanding. With each shot, Jim aims to provide an alternate vantage point from the familiar so that we may see our commonality is more prominent than our division. Whether in back streets or on Wall Street, Jim is in his comfort zone of curiosity and discovery.
His technical acumen and skill at putting cast and crew at ease allow for an engaging and creative work environment. He consistently creates powerful and award-winning images that aim to connect us to the human experience and allow us to see more of ourselves in one another.
Currently based in San Francisco, Jim was raised in Los Angeles and is a graduate of Brooks Institute of Photography. He draws daily inspiration from his wife and daughters. If Jim is not on set, you’ll find him on the golf course or a mountain, with a bike or snowboard.

My work is based in realism. Does this scene feel believable? authentic? recognizable to your audience and you? Life isn’t posed. Our gift and suffering is Relationships. The messy, scratched up, dream filled mile markers which drive us crazy and feed our soul. You will find Relationship all through my portfolio.
This is one of the craziest, best jobs on the planet: to be a visual Circus Ringmaster. It involves constant change which I thrive in, deep focus and the occasional tight rope walk. On set, I work quickly and will put a dog in the shot if given the chance. I am perfectly comfortable talking with clients at anytime. I'm respectful it’s their budget and we are entrusted to use it with thought and care.

“I'm all about being inclusive. No viewer is left out. Everyone is invited to the party. In life, being present is about noticing and valuing each other and the shared ‘ah-ha’ moments when we pause to see it unfolding. My work is about capturing those fleeting moments and pauses”.

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 developed a deeply visual style of shooting that has become increasingly popular. Visceral cinematic imagery captures the soul of performance in a non-contrived, yet observational way that makes his imagery engaging with a natural, yet 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 produced and directed the epic non-fiction film entitled “Oh My God” – which explores peoples’ diverse opinions and perceptions of God, released in 2009.
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.
Peter has written eight screenplays and is attached to direct three of them. In 2009, his first book “The OMG Chronicles” was released, published by Hayhouse.
Peter lives in Los Angeles with his family.

From a conversation with an art buyer:
“Natural, appealing portraits of real people in simple, emblematic settings. Your pictures always make the subject the hero of the shot supported by a background or complimentary setting that helps to tell the story without becoming the story.
Your unique talent is that you create these portraits with ease and without fanfare and the net result is that they always hit the spot - they are effective, believable and usually joyful.
They never appear staged yet they appear to be a very special reality - that is one of happy acceptance - happy to be young or happy to be old, white, black, yellow, brown, happy to be. And happy to be wherever they may be - on the streets of Cairo, New York City, suburban USA, in the corporate office, the hospital, etc., etc.
Driving it all is that sense of truth within yourself that steers you away from what is false and toward that which is true. “

It's all about feeling: Creating an emotional connection in images that range from quiet and still to explosively dynamic.
I love shooting people with a zest for life. I can work fast and light or crew up as needed for both stills and motion production with a great team.
I operate locally from Southern California, NY/Philly and Los Cabos, Mexico.
Every assignment is an opportunity to create something extraordinary....and have a lot of fun. Authentic, emotional, time-slowing, cinematic imagery is how I see the world. And my notepad is filled with future personal projects.

Curious, smart, witty, urbane, short (ish). Operates best between 4:30 am and 9:00 am, then again from 3:00 pm to 9:30 pm. Moves fast and light. Carries a big crew. Drinks coffee. Then more coffee. Won't drink Dunkin' Donuts. Love stills. Love motion. Love both. Sometimes not at the same time, unless fully and lovingly supported. Mixed about social media. Too self-important. And how many pictures of your cat do we really need. Or your meal? I get it. It's fun. Really? Love the industry and all that comes with it. Good folks. Creative types. Jeans. Tee shirts. Often travel with my guitar. Would travel with two, but that's a hard line item to justify. Love the people I shoot. Have made a lot of friends out there, all of which I'm thankful for. Have been to a few fun places too, which remind me that there are so many centers of the universe that you shouldn't hang your hat in one place too long. Open-minded enough to know that there's something to learn every day.
