My name is Tibor Radványi. I am a photographer and it is partly my grandma's fault: she bought me my first camera thirty years ago.
I have been making pictures since then.

I work mainly for companies.

I make portraits of company executives and workers for Web pages and PR articles, I photograph events and make pictures of industrial locations, offices and other buildings.

These three areas require different skill sets from the photographer.

When making portraits I have empathy for my subjects. Being in front of a camera is not an easy thing. To do it regularly is a profession on its own right and its practicers are actors, photo models and other celebrities. For the rest of us it can be intimidating or at least embarrassing to be watched through the lenses. It is my task to create a friendly atmosphere and help people ease their anxiousness in front of my camera. I, as a photographer, do everything possible to relief the nerves that my photo gear wakes up and to try creating a real human connection before the scary shutter is released.

Photography involves quite some technicalities. Stands, flash lights and light modifiers, backdrops, and so on. Some of these things are really required to make quality photographs even in today’s digitally captured world.
Traditionally these required things belonged to photo studios but a busy company executive might never be able to find a couple of hours to travel to, spend in and travel back from a photo studio. Hence I worked out my mobile workflow and can build a studio wherever my client is located: be it an office or industry environment. I need only a few minutes and my mobile kit and the CEO needs to step into the set for only a few minutes.

Events - in most of the cases - are unique and unrepeatable. An event photographer should always expect the unexpected.
To reduce the risks of the unexpected I prepare myself and my gear meticulously.
I always get to the venue one hour before the event actually starts. I use my time to scout the location, getting familiar with organizers and technical people, agenda and light circumstances. I might even make some suggestions with regards to the placing the lectern or podium when possible in order to make better photographs.
The keyword for event photography equipment is redundancy. I need a backup for everything: backup camera body, backup lenses, backup flashlights, backup batteries and memory cards. Event photography is a great revenue source for the equipment manufacturers since we need to practically double our gear.

While during portrait and event photography the photographer has to act quickly, in case of taking pictures of buildings and industrial areas mathematical approach and piece of mind are called.
Human brain finds pleasure in processing pictures of geometric forms and shapes like straight lines and angles, arcs and circles and ovals, triangles and rectangular. They are easy to find in architecture; what is challenging though is to put them into a composition without being able to move them or modify how they are lit.
When the composition is ready the photographer just has to wait for ideal lighting situation or find a suitable technical way of combining multiple exposures into one final image.
