ROWAN METZNER

I am a New Orleans native and RISD photo graduate. I served as the photo editor for Before During After, a book chronicling Hurricane Katrina’s impact on the work of local photographers. I seized an opportunity to relocate to Chicago and work for Playboy as a photo retoucher and freelance photographer. Currently located in Los Angeles, I continue to travel and shoot regularly.

I am accustomed traveling and working under unusual circumstances. For Playboy I traveled to Belize on an adventure shoot that included working from a helicopter and shooting in caves that we had to swim and hike into through freezing water with only flashlights and headlamps for light.

My passion in life is traveling and spending time with people I love. Exploring new places and discovering new things motivate me. I’m also super into aerial yoga.
