"Kristen" | Kristen McMenamy Photographed by Juergen Teller and styled by Camilla Nickerson for W Magazine October 2008

Juergen Teller mostly uses digital now, I believe. Or so he says in an interview in Purple.

I know he loves his Contax (which is film) but I’ve seen him use digital before. I suppose it’s like a painter or writer; it depends on what the artist wants to use at that moment. Maybe a brush, their fingers; a pen or a pencil or a typewriter; or in this case digital or film. It all depends on mood and probably the magazine/designer/ad campaign he’s shooting for.

Teller is not the only fashion photographer that shoots on film, in fact most do, and most Vogue and major fashion magazine covers are shot on film, because film is and will always be superior to digital.

I think what GLOWING-SOLE was trying to say was that his photography is just extremely well known for being shot on film entirely (among many other things, of course). Juergen has mastered film in a very unique way and he’s just one of the front runners who uses the medium. I think maybe people think he’s the only one because his photographs so obviously look like film. But you are right, a lot of photographers and major magazines prefer film because it definitely is a gem.

I saw someone asked what Juergen Teller shoots with. I study fashion Photography and am pretty much obssesed with Juergen Teller. Juergen Teller shoots all his photography with a film camera, 35mm color. He literally knows his camera so well that he can direct people to take the picture telling them what angle and exposure to set the camera on. He has mastered film photography and is the only successful fashion photographer in the industry that shoots in film. Hope this helps.

This is beautiful information! Thanks for sharing!

hello, I've been studying Juergen Teller's work for my foundation course, I was curious with what camera and lighting that he used to be able to create the images for the Celine F/W 2013 campaign? This would be very helpful with my research for my work as his images were my first inspiration for my project. hope to here from you soon!

Hello. I do not know what kind of camera and lighting he used! I am going to assume he used his usual camera that he has been using recently but I don’t know for sure. Good luck!

Hi! I recently graduated and having to buy my own equipment and having to pick/choose what will pay for itself in the long run. My question is- how do you feel about ring flash? And have you ever used it in any editorial work? Love your work!

Hello I cannot answer your question because 1) I am not Juergen and 2) I am not knowledgeable in photography.

To the person asking about Juergen’s digital work:

The Louis Vuitton 2015 lookbook is also digital.

Thanks to serum114.

Can you point me in the direction to some of Juergen's recent digital work? I feel silly for not being able to pick it out.

No worries, I believe that most of his mainstream advertisements (Marc Jacobs, Céline, Vivienne Westwood, etc.) are digital. I’m not 100% sure, however. You can see the ads here.

tell juergen to start shooting on film again.

Haha, I would if I could! But I think what he’s doing digitally is gorgeous too.
