Ted Preuss (b. 1962) was born in Colorado. Since an early age photography has always played a large part of his life. Preuss is self-taught, but has refined his art with a few courses on the technical aspects of photography. As a long time architectural photographer in San Francisco, Preuss was looking for an outlet for his creativity.  However, it was only recently in Chicago where he resides now that he was able to achieve a long-time goal to pursue fine art. Preuss draws inspiration from vintage and classical art. Consequently the images he captures have a distinct vintage feel about them.

His work has been featured in Zoom Magazine, Large Format Magazine, Focus Magazine and is widely collected and exhibited around the country.


Preuss uses traditional techniques, including a large format view camera with century old lenses. The process of making prints is as important to him as the practice of creating photographs. Preuss chose platinum-palladium as a medium for its distinct vintage quality and archival properties, they beautifully revealing shadows and dark values within the images.

Through his lens he seeks to capture the natural beauty and grace of the female spirit, yet secretly wishing to leave traces of their identity forever. Preuss’ images are studies in light and form, which blend formal and sensual qualities, radiating the individuality of his subjects through their emotion-laced gestures.
