How to pronounce my name?
György means ‘George’ where I come from. (Guess where?)
Its shortened form is ‘Gyuri’, pronounced as [dew-rie]. That’s all there is to it.
What is exposureworks?
ExposureWorks offers bespoke 1-to-1 and small group (maximum of 3 people) video production, photography and image editing courses and workshops.
Because my native name seems too exotic for many to pronounce (don’t be scared, it’s a really simple name in Hungarian), ExposureWorks is how you can find me as a teacher, DOP and portrait, family and event photographer.
I was born in Budapest, Hungary. I started taking pictures when I was 10. My father encouraged me to get into photography professionally. Needless to say, I did the exact opposite.
Today, decades later, I find myself a passionate street photographer who never leaves home without a camera.
Although I am a graduate of Cinematography Department of Famu (one of the best schools for cinematographers in Europe), that happened only after I got an M.A. American Studies and studied cognitive linguistics in Budapest a bit at Berkeley, California.
It seems that my academic background hasn’t fully left me as I still run a curious little interview blog, Lightbites featuring interviews with a diverse range of photographers.
And when my students ask me repeatedly about certain topics, I can’t help but write a blog of easy-to-read study guides and semi-scientific explanations.
I’ve been living in London since 2012, recently as a brexit-induced dual EU and UK citizen.
