Exposure is for photographers who want a more meaningful and effortless way to publish their work — in the context of a narrative, instead of a feed or single photo on a permalink page. We help you tell a great story, while putting your photography front and center.
Exposure.so just launched in December 2013 and is the product of San Francisco based Elepath. It’s an absolutely beautiful blog platform with a clean, minimalist look all about showcasing imagery and keeping your photography front and center. There’s also the option to add visually appealing, unobtrusive text that’s ideal for photo narratives. To explore what Exposure is all about, take a look at these featured narratives, handpicked by the creators.
The set up is quick and easy, with a “what you see is what you get” editor that allows you to arrange and create your layout just as others will view it. Simply drag and drop images into the grid layout, write some content, add a title, photo location and publish! (Take a peak at the video below to get the gist of it).
Exposure also displays beautifully on the iPhone, appearing just as clean and photo-focused as it does on a large display.
Another wonderful component is how responsive they are as a company; taking customer feedback and suggestions and updating accordingly, all within an extremely timely manner. The changes that they’ve made are archived, so you can see for yourself all that is new and improved.

Exposure is really focused on building the absolute best tool possible for you. They stress the fact that they’re completely against disrespecting your space, filling it up with ads or suddenly disappearing, which is why they charge the fee they do.
If you’d like to learn more, you can check out the FAQ section and sign up for a free trial which allows you to publish up to three posts. In my opinion, Exposure is the ideal blog platform for photographers: incredibly user friendly with the ability to create and publish posts quickly and most importantly, the emphasis on keeping your imagery front and center in a gorgeous narrative form. And no other photography based storytelling platform exists at the moment. Simply put, what Exposure has to offer is special.
