Gustave Preiss (2 July 1881 – 7 January 1963) was a Swiss cinematographer known for his work in Weimar Germany.[1]

He learned the profession of filmmaker very young, by participating in the traveling cinema of his father, Louis Preiss Senior.

From 1906, he joined his brother, Louis Preiss in order to operate his own traveling cinema, "The Royal Bio".[2]

In 1908, following the death of his brother, he moved to Austria where he ran a cinema in Tepliz-Schonau.

Between 1912 and 1932 he had a brilliant career as a filmmaker in Berlin, then he left Germany for Switzerland when the National Socialist party won the elections.

From 1932 to 1952, he operated his own cinematographic laboratory in Zürich, where he produced most of the equipment himself.[3]
