Tenckhoff photo archive: With this website we are opening our archive to the general public. In over 40 years, more than 300,000 photos and images from over 100 countries and regions have been created, which we are now successively using in BLOG posts to show historical and forgotten, as well as beautiful and rare things from all over the world.
Combined with excerpts from our travel diaries, we not only want to inspire photo projects, but also motivate people to travel away from the usual destinations and routes in order to get to know the wonderful diversity of this world.
Since traveling is becoming increasingly difficult, you should know the entry requirements before you start your journey and think about the necessary travel documents (visa, COVID-19, letter of invitation, health certificates, etc.). Our partner iVisa will be happy to help you quickly:

Our category recording technique will help to get to know classic methods of photography and the contributions to the presentation technique should inspire the development of one's own "art style". With our online survey, we analyze, among other things, the situation of hobby, amateur and professional photographers from a sociological perspective. And we are working on making modern developments usable for photographers. On the subject of "NFT and Blockchain", we have already opened collections for non-fungible tokens on NFT marketplaces:

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.
