We love to believe in the value of change.
Destruction gives place to new.
New often mistaken for better.
Nature, monuments, traditions – nothing sacred.
No questions. No balance.
Emotions and senses vanish.
Lost vocabulary: dignity and respect.
Priceless universal goods traded for profit.
Our grandchildren will hold us responsible.
Acting today impacts the future.
We shall better preserve.
We shall better take care.
Irreversible destruction is everlasting.
Cameras, lenses, and accessories are tools for creating visions, not more and not less. Each tool has pros and cons in handling and capabilities, each has its raison d’être for different projects. The following selection simply reflects personal preferences for my photographic workflow, style, and philosophy.

You must not modify, copy, reproduce, republish, frame, upload to a third party, post, transmit or distribute this content in any way except as expressly authorized in writing by me, Arved Gintenreiter, personally.
This site is owned and operated by Arved Gintenreiter. Your access to this site is conditional upon your acceptance and compliance with the terms, conditions, notices and disclaimers contained in this document.
Your use of, and/or access to, this site constitutes your agreement to be bound by these General Conditions. Arved Gintenreiter reserves the right to amend these General Conditions at anytime.
Arved Gintenreiter is fully committed to safeguarding your privacy on the website by having implemented the high standards of the European GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) directive. Respecting your privacy this website also does not place any tracking cookie on your device.
Nonetheless some information is shared with Arved Gintenreiter while using the website. Please read the following policy to understand how your privacy is ensured and how given information will be treated. This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically.
What information may be collected?
Information is collected in several ways. For example, some personal information is gathered when you checkout for payment filling in shipping and billing information. You may as well be asked for your email address. If you contact me I may keep a record of that correspondence.
For analytical purpose data such as approximate location (country, city), visited pages on the website, and technical data about the devices visiting the website can be collected. Using anonymized and aggregated data ensures that a single user will not be singled out.
In case you believe that any inaccurate or inappropriate information has been obtained or disseminated through your use of this site, you should please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How is the information used?
Primary goal in collecting information is to manage the shipping, billing, and communication process. Only if you agreed on, this information might also be used to notify you of other products or services available in a newsletter.
For shipping reasons your address information can be passed to a delivery service. In case other companies are hired to provide limited services like packaging and processing only the information needed to deliver the service will be provided, and any partner is contractually prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Beyond that no information will be disclosed except having your permission or under special circumstances, such as when believing in good faith the law requires, or under the circumstances described below. The following describes some of the ways that your information may be disclosed.
For increasing your privacy instead of using Google Analytics the user behavior on the website is monitored with a locally hosted analytics software where just Arved Gintenreiter has access to the data. No monitoring data is ever shared with a third party. When leaving the website, the tracking stops until you return to the website. Your user behavior not related to the website is not monitored.
How can I control my personal information?
Arved Gintenreiter offers you choices for the use and sharing of personal information. You may contact email@example.com if you wish to view, edit or delete your personal information from the database. Commercially reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate your request.
How is my financial-related information protected?
Keeping your personal financial information private is vitally important. As a matter of policy, information provided by you is never ever sold under any circumstances. With payments through the paypal interface (credit/debit cards) for safety reasons Arved Gintenreiter does neither see nor receive any of your banking data, which can be seen by paypal only.
Because of the global nature of the Internet, when you give information, that information may be sent electronically to servers outside of the country where you originally entered the information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
Therefore, information disclosed by use of this site (as with any site), by posting a message or using e mail, potentially could be collected and used by others. As a result, while protecting your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Arved Gintenreiter Photography, and you do so at your own risk.
Once I received your transmission, commercially reasonable efforts are made to ensure its security in my systems.
