Jacob Olie (1834 – 1905) was a photographer from Amsterdam known for his scenes of everyday life there.
Olie was born in Amsterdam and was trained as a carpenter and draughtsman. He became a teacher at the local school for craftsmen known as the Ambachtsschool, converting it to be the first ever vocational school of the Netherlands for boys. He took up photography as a hobby. Today he is known for his unusually sharp depictions of various parts of Amsterdam that no longer exist. His son by the same name also became a photographer.
