About MCO

 Artist Bio

MC Olson is a Wisconsin-based photographer and artist (artographer). His themes emphasize the abstract – shapes, forms, lines, color. Words and street ephemera, like weathered signage, can capture his attention, and landscape is a recurring genre.

Olson is a member of the Model Society, a community where the very best models, photographers and artists collaborate, connect and share their art, and he is expanding his nude compositions and artistic portrait portfolios.

Olson has a foundation in traditional black and white film photography with training at the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. He also earned an M.A. from Ohio University, Athens.

Making beautiful archival quality prints is a passion. Olson prefers to do his own printing, finding that envisioning and crafting a fine print is a key part, and a technical side, of the creative process. Additionally, tangible results are rewarding and are part of the tradition of works on paper. 

Olson opened and managed a brick-and-mortar gallery Cambridge, Wisconsin. In addition to showcasing his black & white photography, the gallery also represented the work of other regional artists. The gallery moved to Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin for several years, and it was a stop on the annual Earth, Wood, and Fire Art Tour. It is now exclusively online.
