Travel photography and photo projects

 

With this website we open our photo archive to the public. In over 40 years, around 300,000 photos and images have been taken, which we are gradually using in blog entries to show the historical and forgotten as well as the beautiful and rare from all over the world.
Combined with extracts from our travel diaries, we not only want to inspire photo projects but also motivate them to travel beyond the usual destinations and routes to get to know the wonderful diversity of this world.
Our recording technique category will help you to get to know classic photography methods and the contributions to display techniques should contribute to develop your own "style".
Many of our photos, images and videos can be purchased from the Adobe, IStock, Shutterstock and Getty's Images agencies. You can find the related links in the footer. Or ask us directly using the contact form.
Anyone interested in entering into a dialogue with us and commenting on articles can register as a community user. For registered users, we offer a newsletter and will soon set up a "license-free photos" category.

All publications are protected by copyright. We have commissioned the collecting societies VG Wort and VG Bild-Kunst to exercise and enforce our copyrights in trust. We have only provided the photos with a small logo and publish without dominant watermarks in favor of an unimpaired image statement. Photos are published here (with a few exceptions) in a reduced JPEG quality of 50 and a maximum resolution of 4000 px, so that the small file sizes achieved in this way have a positive effect on the loading times of the website. Our media can be purchased from various stock agencies (see footer). Most of the photos and pictures shown here are not for sale - but feel free to ask.
