When 27-year-old Johan Lolos set out from Belgium in 2013 with his camera and no return ticket, he admittedly didn't anticipate becoming one of New Zealand's most popular Instagrammers. It was only a year ago, in February of 2014, that Lolos started taking his Instagram account—@lebackpacker—seriously while traveling through Australia. He started getting noticed, even reposted by larger accounts like @australia and @natgeotravel, and began trading his Instagram skills with outfitters and local tourism boards for accommodations or tickets for his next trip. Lolos's current gig is as New Zealand's Lake Wanaka tourism photographer, where he is staying free for three months, sharing daily adventures with his 75,000 followers.
