Having been told for the last 3 years that if you want to make something out of being a photographer then you have to be based in a major city like Bristol or London, I thought it was high time to make a stand and put North Devon on the map in an artistic photographic way. With that in mind I have decided to open the Exposure Photography Gallery in Bideford. We aim to provide a platform and space for photographers of all ages and abilities to collaborate, learn, print, and display their work.

The Exposure Photography Gallery will work with local artists, community groups, schools and colleges through collaborative photographic projects and exhibitions, promoting and encouraging emerging local artistic talent in the region.


With this in mind The Exposure Photography Gallery has an “open door” policy on submissions for show and exhibition. 

Submissions are free and all will be considered and contacted, so please don’t think your work is not good enough. ​


Looking forward to seeing your work, get submitting.
