Meet Sven Michiels:
Welcome to my biography page, hopefully a place where I can tell you a bit more about myself and a place where you can find more about my background and skills …
“Every picture need to tell a story, take your time to write that story!”
This quote is for me, but also for my actual- and future clients very important. I’m not the normal photographer who wants to be part of a group with lack of creativity. Photography is so magical, that you need to be creative with it to accomplish something great that can last forever.
I’m a young photographer (born in 1983) with a complete different background than photography. In food photography, this background as a chef in a kitchen comes really helpful. Combining these passions is awesome. For concert- & festival photography is was a dream coming true … every young guy loves to shoot on the biggest concerts and festivals and get paid for it. Wildlife photography is the complete opposite, but that is what passions are about: you love them or you hate them …
Some friends or clients ask me how I became a photographer. You don’t become a photographer! You have it or you don’t and those you have it can only learn to get better by doing it. Maybe one tip for starting photographers: learn from your bad images (and why they aren’t as you expected), not from the good ones.
