Harry Stradling Jr. (born January 7, 1925) is a two-time Oscar-nominated American cinematographer and the son of cinematographer Harry Stradling. He worked on four different Blake Edwards films and six films by Burt Kennedy. (See: List of film director and cinematographer collaborations). He is acclaimed in particular as a skilled cinematographer in Westerns. He was nominated for two Oscars, for 1776 and The Way We Were, and for a Primetime Emmy for George Washington. He also did cinematography on 87 episodes of Gunsmoke, and shot 21 of the total 23 episodes of the TV show Cimarron Strip.

Stradling's work on Westerns, including both Gunsmoke and Cimarron Strip as well as feature films including the 1969 Western comedy Support Your Local Sheriff! (1969), brought him to the heavily filmed Iverson Movie Ranch in Chatsworth, Los Angeles, California, where he has been cited as one of the most adept cinematographers of his era when it came to capturing the unique cinematic attributes of the location's massive sandstone boulders.
