Co-founder, Director, Photographer and Producer
Chris Olfers is a photographer, director and cinematographer - and the co-founder of The Southern Influence. Chris’ creative work has been featured in publications like AdWeek, BizBash, Forbes, Real Simple and Vogue. Chris brings an unmatched breadth and depth of knowledge to TSI - after graduating from Belmont University with a degree in Physics and spending almost a decade at industry-leading consulting firms advising Fortune 100 clients in the energy, life sciences and data science, Chris joined his wife Arielle at TSI to build out the creative team and capabilities. When Chris isn't hustling at the studio or traveling for client projects, you can find him capturing his travels on film, fly fishing, sweating out his stress in a hot yoga class or experiencing the world through his son Warner's eyes.
