Here's the website of an organization you may wish to contact -- International Combat Camera Association which I am a member of. There are many members from Germany, Japan the US and other nations who were combat photographers.
Below is a photograph of myself back in the early 1950s

This is a very interesting thread. I dug up several scans of PK photographers in action. They are from the US National Archives; which has quite a few images of the photographers and their activities. The images I found are from the campaign in the west in May 1940.
I posted them to my website under “Historical Photo Archive – Photographs of the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration.” I put them on my web site vice posting them to here because I am not smart enough to figure out the pixel requirements for uploading .jpegs to this forum.
If anyone can provide information about PK companies – organization, mission, etc. – I will use it on my webpage to accompany the posted photos. Thanks in advance.

I hope someboy can me give a hand. I'm posting from Portugal, and today in a flea market I found an incredible collection of photographs from the eastern front. All original, all with small summarys typw-writted in the cover and I was trying to found information regarding the photographer but I was only able to found one picture taken by him (in the eastern front, also).
His Name PK Zschäckl. Is this a known war german correspondent? The pictures are incredible... I only bought one, but I was thing of buying all the collection.
I will wait for the forum's feedback.

I did a deep and long research in the bundesrachive's pictures on line.
I'm interested in Heinze Fremke, Hushke, Stift, Hinz and Böker pictures for the 10/20 may 1940.
By exemple for Fremke I find pics 127-0369-19 and 127-0369-21 but no traces of 20 and others.
That's the same problem for other series of shots
Is somebody can tell me how I can retrieve the the missing N°
Many thanks for reply

Do you think it's possible to found german photographer in the wake of 211 Infantry Division in Meuse (BELGIUM) area in may 1940.
Many Thanks for reply
I am no expert at all, but maybe you should look out for Propagandakompanie 689, which was attachted to 4. Armee (http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/Gli ... aganda.htm).
There are one or two notes on that company in:
