Hi! My name is Line Hårklau and I’m a photojournalist based in Oslo. I grew up having mountains everywhere I looked, my work is primarily focused around humans and their relationship with nature.
Living in a world where nature is threatened, I hope what I do can inspire people to take care of the planet.
I know there are a lot of smaller and lighter mirrorless cameras out there, but my camera has somehow become part of my body and I like that it feels heavy in my hands.
Since I often find myself hiking or skiing, I need to carry a lot of other stuff and often bring only one lens, the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8. It is very versatile as I can shoot pretty much anything with it.
The downside of using this lens most of the time is that it’s easy to become lazy. Instead of moving around I notice that I use the zoom a lot. Therefore, I try to use prime lenses when I have the opportunity.
Both lenses are super sharp, and they are not as expensive as original Canons.
I have also rediscovered my Canon 100mm f/2.8 L macro. Getting really close into details is fun and brings more variation into the material. The lens also works surprisingly well photographing landscapes in the distance, the detail level is amazing.
