Paul Yee is a cinematographer based in New York City. In 2015, he lensed The Fits (Venice 2015, Sundance 2016), Anna Holmer’s acclaimed debut feature, that the New York Times described as “a dreamy, beautifully syncopated coming-of-age tale.”
Directors he has worked with include Matt Wolf, Jeremy Saulnier, Chioke Nassor, Kristen Schaal, and Tom Scharpling. He has worked on Jonathan Yi’s award-winning HBO series East of Main Street since its inception in 2010, a documentary that examines the state of being Asian in America. He has shot music videos for artists ranging from Aimee Mann to ZZ Top which have gone on to screen at film festivals such as SXSW and the LA Film Festival.
Paul has also shot short-form documentaries for the Whitney Museum, MOMA, and the New Museum and worked on a variety of commercial projects for clients such as Adidas, L’Oreal, DIRECTV, AARP, the New York Times, and Clear Channel. He is an avid cook and food photographer- you can find his culinary work at PHIN.
