Beringen He seems every day to be somewhere else in the world to sit, is always the most idyllic spots and is now by 119.000 people followed. Michiel Pieters (28) from Beringen is a true Instagramfenomeen.

Currently running in Gallery Bel-Art Pole has a expo where Beringse photographers have their work exhibited. Michiel is one of them, though the few hundred visitors in stark contrast to his online audience. According to the twenties began, at the time, all with a toy camera of the saint. “That was such a unit, where you'll find real rolls in could stick and so is the love arise,” he laughs. “Of course, the rise of social media in the last few years also played a major role. The fact that I can share with such a large audience is still special.”

New Zealand as a launch point

A roadtrip with a friend through New Zealand in early 2015 was the launch point of Michiels career. “During those six weeks we saw every day new landscapes and I tried all these places better and better to capture it with my camera. There is my passion for outdoorfotografie fully developed.”

Michiel likes dark shades on and seems to be the rough ruggedness of nature to cherish. “If I really must choose, I feel the best in a tent on a lake in the mountains. Silence, peace, no worries, more does not have to be,” he says passionately. “But it doesn't at all northern and cold to hear. As long as the landscape is impressive, I am satisfied.”

If the weather is bad, all the effort will have been for nothing. In photographic terms anyway, because I enjoy every moment of it. It makes me no more or I with a good photo home times

The weather has Michael, of course, not in the hand and that can sometimes be frustrating. “If the weather is disappointing, is all the effort will have been for nothing. In photographic terms anyway, because I try to enjoy every moment. It makes me no more or I go home with a good photo.”
