About


Maggie Olkuska, DFF 

Director of Photography / Camera Operator, Copenhagen, Denmark


Attended Film & TV production at KTS, Technical College in Denmark in 2012, and The Polish National Film, Television & Theatre School in Łódź, Poland for Direction of Photography in 2015-2016. 

Member of The Danish Association of Cinematographers DFF

I mainly specialise in feature documentaries as well as independent fiction, lifestyle tv series. 

As a cinematographer, I am passionate about diving deeply into colours, nature, earth elements and human emotions. I find feelings a huge part of an universal language, which speaks to all of us around the world therefore I admire embracing the dialogue of emotions on the screen through cinematography. 

I passionately work on projects which are pro-humanity & pro-life,  which can inspire us to think, to feel, to sense, to laugh, to take life more easily and to embrace all that it is, and all that we are. I am committed to working with projects on fair basis, movies with a holistic approach towards the whole filmmaking process. Let's create an unique experience for a viewer while working together, sharing skills and communicating with other in a respectful and professional atmosphere. 

Shortly, I was born in Krakow, Poland, currently living and working in Copenhagen, Denmark.  Recent years allowed me to film in a variety of conditions and cultures such us: Denmark, Norway, Poland, Germany, Malta, Nepal, Philippines and Colombia. Some of my films were screened at IDFA, CPH:DOX, Berlinale, CPH:PIX, Manchester film festival.
