Since he was young, Paul Olson’s love of movies and music made his path to being a cinematographer inevitable. He is a founding partner in Brotherhood Pictures, LLC. and a lover of all formats of storytelling, shooting anything from short films and music videos to commercials and, of course, feature films. He is also an avid engineer and designer, making custom lights and solutions to get the best shots he can. He always tries to bring a fresh look and positive attitude to everything. When he’s not behind the camera, it’s cause he is probably on the ice playing hockey. Or welding. Or making some crazy app to control a light from a phone.

Paul Olson is a smart, hardworking Director of Photography, Camera Operator, and Gaffer who can work equally well with skeleton crews and large productions. He has an excellent attitude and is always doing his best to make the shot just a little bit better. I recommend him highly.
