Bruno Bernard was a German-born photographer. He emigrated to the United States in 1937 and settled in
Los Angeles. During the 1940s and 1950s he photographed numerous Hollywood stars, operating out of his
own studios in Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Laguna Beach, and Las Vegas. In 1961 he sold his studios and
became a foreign correspondent and photojournalist in Europe. Bernard was honored by the Academy of
Motion Picture Arts and Sciences with an exhibition of his photographs in 1984.
