About Buddy Weiss

Buddy Weiss was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. He received his first camera at the age of 13, and by 16 had already won an award in the international Photokina competition. He earned his Bachelor’s in Journalism at the University of Missouri, and then moved to Southern California. During his career as an advertising agency owner/creative director/copywriter and TV commercial director, Buddy continued to make images by collaborating with some of the best still photographers and cinematographers in the world. Buddy rediscovered his love of the camera after shooting images of his hometown, Malibu. The images were compiled for his book, To Malibu With Love, and were featured at The G2 Gallery in 2010. His work has appeared in travel, automotive, outdoor sports and ecological publications as well as catalogs and websites, and his prints hang in homes, churches and businesses. Buddy is currently represented by Tandem Stock and was recently awarded First Place in a photography competition sponsored by travel company Ker & Downey.
