Paul Ferrara (born November 16, 1939) is an American photographer known for his relation with singer Jim Morrison of the band The Doors . He started as The Doors still photographer and his first production was a souvenir book that was sold at concerts. Many of the iconic images of Morrison’s persona were created by Ferrara. Ferrara also took the cover photograph of the Doors album Waiting for the Sun.

He directed Jim Morrison's 1969 film HWY: An American Pastoral. Hitherto unreleased behind the scenes movies of The Doors shot by Ferrara in the late 1960s/early 1970s were included in the 2009 documentary on the Doors, When You're Strange.

Ferrera was in the inner circle of The Doors and self-published his memoirs from this period in 2007.
