After having been taught photography by his mother, Willinger established photographic studios in Paris and Berlin in 1929 and 1931, and at the same time submitted his photographs to various newspapers as a freelance contributor. He left Berlin in 1933, and worked in Vienna, photographing such celebrities as Marlene Dietrich, Hedy Lamarr, Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, and Max Reinhardt. He moved to the United States in the mid-1930s. After establishing a studio in Hollywood, Willinger became a frequent contributor to magazines and periodicals, providing magazine cover portraits of some of the most popular stars. He was one of the first Hollywood photographers to experiment in the use of colour.
