Hello Atle, I am completely inspired by your work. I have finally decided to buy a camera of my own, and I am looking into the X100s. I am looking to using it as an all purpose camera but mostly landscape and street. Would you recommend it? Thank you kindly.
Me:

Hi! First of all thank you for kind feedback. Really means a lot! I highly recommend the X100s as a all purpose camera. It´s small enough to be brought along and performs great! Good luck choosing your new camera :)

Atle Rønningen | Norway | Fuji X100S & X-T1.

myfujix: Where are you from, and where do you currently live?

AR: I’m from a little village, about a one hour drive from Oslo, in Norway. I eventually moved to Oslo about 15 years ago.

myfujix: Tell us a bit about yourself.

AR: I have a beautiful wife and a daughter, and I work as a manager for an IT-consultancy business. I enjoy to travel, but I really love to spend my free time within Norway’s nature.

myfujix: Why are you into photography?

AR: Photography has always been close to my heart. That interest has really grown over the last couple of years. I feel fortunate for living in Norway, where nature has a lot to offer. I try to take advantage of it as much as possible, by hiking the local trails. I really enjoy breathing that fresh mountain air! Exploring, along with photography, is perfect. My goal, as a photographer, is to highlight the isolated beauty of the Norwegian wilderness.

myfujix: Who is your favourite photographer, and why?

AR: There are many landscape photographers that I find inspiring. At this point in time, I’m really trying to challenge myself to take better portraits. I would say, that Jakob, embodies wonderful work. He captures perfect moments and his expressions, within his portrait work, is phenomenal. I’m also a big fan of his clean processing style.

myfujix: What X-Series camera do you use, and why?

AR: I got into Fujifilm through numerous connections with landscape photographers on Twitter. I noticed that a lot of them were using Fuji’s X-Series lineup. I bought the X100S as soon as it came out, and I don’t regret it! I find the X100S is perfect for hiking, and has great built quality. I can easily conceal it under my jacket. I’m happy to say that I also recently picked up the Fuji X-T1, and all I can say: it’s outstanding! The EVF (electronic viewfinder) and the quick AF (auto focus) is really amazing. The built in WiFi and “Camera Remote App” on the phone also come in handy.

myfujix: Tell us a little bit about the photo you chose for this profile.

AR: This photo was taken with the X100S. It was during one of my hikes to Øvre Ardal in Norway. It’s a 4.5 hour drive from Oslo, and a 2 hour walk to this specific location. I always look forward to return to this very spot!
