Harris Savides (born September 28, 1957) is a contemporary American cinematographer. Notable films include Gus Van Sant's "young death" trilogy: Gerry, Elephant and Last Days.

Savides was born in New York City, New Yorkmarker. He graduated with a degree in photography and film from the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

Besides his recent collaborations with Van Sant the blunt cinematographer is also known for the very delicate images that he created for The Yards and Birth. In both instances he underexposed the filmstock by several stops in order to break up the colors and give the blacks a purplish and brownish tint. This non-conventional approach lead to a look that reminds of Georges De La Tour and Caravaggio paintings.

Savides has also shot two films for David Fincher: The Game and the mostly digital Zodiac.

Savides lives in Manhattan with his wife, Medine, and daughter, Sophie.
