Pil-Art Photography is Pius Landolt art



Like I said my name is Pius and I am really glad that the cliff didn’t break off. After living abroad for several years, I am back in my home country Switzerland again. I was born in that year when for the first time in history a mobile phone call was made. Absolutely, technology is one of my passions, but this webpage is fully dedicated to photography.

I am a passionate travel, landscape and architecture photographer, as well as a photography coach and trip organizer.

Some of my work is also available from Shutterstock.com, iStock.com and Adobe Stock as I regularly contribute to them. Those platforms are the leading photo and media sources for stock photography worldwide. They have high demands in regards to their contributors.

Let me inspire you with my photography, travels or both. It’s definitely the combination in my case. I think there is nothing more powerful than as special moment captured and conserved forever. With this, my pictures bring me some of the greatest past moments back.


My favorite quote: “The choices we make, not the chances we take, determine our destiny”

Pilart references boat and beach Zanzibar Afrika

Zanzibar fall 2012. I was just enjoying my lunch as I spotted this fishing boat out in the ocean. I immediately reached for my camera and waited for the perfect moment to release the shutter.
