Exposed DC connects photographers of all levels with networking, mentoring, and exhibition opportunities. We partner with organizations to strengthen and cultivate the local photography community. Since 2006 we have produced the annual Exposed Photography Show, with a contest that begins in December and a gallery exhibit the following spring. Now a year-round venture, we organize meet-ups and other events. Our website highlights local images (photos from our Flickr pool and tagged #exposeddc on Instagram), profiles photographers, and offers lessons for a wide range of skill levels. Contact us if you’d like to contribute a blog post or submit an event.
Exposed DC is a project by Ten Miles Square, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Noe was born and raised in Hawaii and moved to the Washington, D.C. area in 2004 after attending college in California.

Her work focuses primarily on lifestyle photography and has been featured in Washington Life, the Washington Post, Northern Virginia Magazine, the Huffington Post, Capitol Romance, and Flickr Explore.
