Sonar Spotlight: Tomáš Vrabec
Hello there, lovely people of Sonar!
This week, our Sonar Spotlight takes us to the faraway lands of the Czech Republic. Meet Tomáš Vrabec, a software tester for Xacti who, on the side, writes for photography magazines and also enjoys taking photos himself!
Nice to meet you, Tomáš! I love that you’re passionate about photography. What sort of work do you do with photography magazines?
I write about photography issues and photography equipment, including reviews and previews. Most of my articles are for the online magazine DIGIarena.cz, one of Czech Republic’s largest photography magazines. I also write for AVmania.cz, a webzine focused on video and audio topics, as well as zive.cz, an online magazine on computer and technology.
Sounds like you have a lot of photography expertise!
Yes, I do have quite a bit of photography experience. Last week, I gave a talk for about 30 people on “how to not choose a camera.” I spoke about the main mistakes that people make when they are looking for a new camera and discussed some photography techniques. I also enjoy photography as a hobby and keep an online photo gallery. I’m also thinking about starting my own photography blog soon!
That’s pretty cool. Why do you use Sonar?
I’ve been a Superuser in the Czech foursquare community and really I liked how Sonar shows me connections from all of my social networks. I also enjoy Sonar’s simple user interface and being able to check into places quickly, two things I expect from a social networking app. I’ve shown Sonar to a few friends, and they’ve all started using the app and recommending it to other friends!
Awesome! Do you have any stories you’d like to share about using Sonar?
I ran into a classmate of mine from primary school - twice! And we were at the opposite side of the country from where we had gone to school.
Reunions! Love that. One last question - the Olympics are coming up, which sport are you looking forward to watching the most?
Definitely football. Or shall I say, soccer?
Thanks, Tomáš, for interviewing with us!
