Exposure Leeds is a new development in the local social space; designed to give everyone serious about photography open, sharing and affordable access to develop their skills, expand their experience and a chance to socialise/network with others.
On the first wednesday of every month you'll find us at LeedsMet's Old Broadcasting House - with workshops/presentations followed by a social gathering at a nearby hostelry. These events (and indeed the whole of the project is aimed at improving the end image, rather than being a "techie nerdfest".
