Roger Metivier photographed his first event––his sister's wedding––when he was just 11 years old, using nothing more than a plastic 35mm camera. He hasn't stopped taking pictures since, and even used his talents to win accolades such as the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Award. Today, the Canadian-born photographer and filmmaker travels the world under the name of his company, Dandyline Pictures. He uses a sometimes classical, sometimes playful approach to composition in shooting subjects as far-ranging as plates of food, sweeping natural landscapes, and people disguised as food. He also passes on his knowledge in a private photography school.
During group workshops and private classes, Metivier teaches basic manual photography techniques––such as how to use ISO and aperture to one's advantage––as well as compositional techniques suited to styles ranging from portrait to restaurant photography. Meanwhile, he also works with a team of skilled artists and technicians to provide video production, animation, graphic design, and other services.
