Pius Notter

Amateur wildlife photographer from Switzerland. Pius Notter is actually better known as a bonsai designer. He was the first and still the only Westerner to win the World Bonsai Competition in Japan. For his publications he was awarded the coveted Photographers- and Writers-Award of the BCI in the USA. He is considered the bonsai pioneer in the western world. One of his works even made it onto a San Marino postage stamp.

It was only in 2008 that he acquired a digital camera and started photographing birds as a hobby. In recent years, he has regularly travelled to Costa Rica, various African countries, Japan and, of course, all of Europe for wildlife photography.
