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 Todorovich – Executive Director
Noe was born and raised in Hawaii and moved to the Washington, D.C. area in 2004 after attending college in California. She worked in the government before transitioning into the field of communications at non-profit organizations. In 2014, she decided to pursue photography full time. 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. Noe discovered Exposed DC through the annual Photography Show as an attendee first, then as an exhibiting photographer in later years, and finally as a member of the team. – noe at exposeddc dot com
Katie grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and has been gradually making her way east. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame in Indiana in 2016, she moved to Washington, D.C. and attended The George Washington University where she received her M.A. in Museum Studies in 2018. With a minor in photography, Katie wanted to find a way to get involved in the photo community in D.C. and discovered Exposed DC through social media. She began volunteering as part of the team in 2017, writing for the website and helping plan events.
