Ex-po-zure Closed!



I have been toying with this idea for many months now.

I think the time has come for me to move on.
I have given all that I have to this club and I have loved every minute of it, but my desire to continue has been lost.
I can't seem to find it, and I know that as January nears, I need to make a decision about continuing.

I have enjoyed my time away, and I fear that one month just won't be enough time, therefore, I am going to close the club indefinitely.

Who knows......maybe there will be a day that I will want to return.

I am considering turning the club over to someone else. BUT I have not made this decision yet, so please do not note me about it.

We Have a Mentor Program!



Announcing our Mentor Program for our Newer Members...and a reminder to those of you who have been with us longer.
:w00t:
Below you will find some of our Members who are offering their services to Mentor. This means they are available to help you with your photography!
They are available as noted .
Feel free to take a Peek into their Galleries and decide which Mentor would be best suited for your needs, and note them.
Trust me, they are all very willing and able to provide you with the
assistance you may need to sharpen your skills.
You may only note one Mentor at a time.
You may not note ALL Mentors with a request to view your entire Gallery to give you tips.
Please identify yourself as a Member of Ex-po-zure when you contact a Mentor !
I had the personal experience of taking advantage of one of our Mentors, and although we do not meet regularly, he continues to help me with my photography and continues to offer some wonderful insight. I have come to value his
insight and wisdom.
Thankyou!
Wessonnative
:heart:

If you are one of our Mentors and are no longer interested in being listed here, please note the club and you will be removed.
You may also note us if you'd like to change your feature photos or are temporarily unavailable, for whatever reason, too many students, going to be away, etc.  and we will make a notation next to your name until you are once again  available.


Please take advantage of our Chatroom to meet with your Mentor/Student to discuss your photography.
:bulletblue: Student/Mentor Chatroom!!! :bulletblue:

Mentor relationships are strictly between Mentor and Student.
Mentors no longer have to go through the club for assignments.
We will be here to notate your availability only.

We want to thank all of you for joining us in our attempt to get you some expozure!!!!
We hope your experience has been a positive one so far!

Reedabah
He is extremely dedicated to helping others improve their photos. He has been a great Mentor to me, and his excitement as my photos improved was phenomenal. He takes great pride in others, and is very selfless. I want to thank him for not only being a great partner in this venture Ex-po-zure, but for all the hard work he has put into this Mentor program !

Thankyou Tina!

CLOSED DURING THE MONTH OF DECEMBER


For those of you just joining, you may read the information below, but know that I will not be accepting any submissions during this month!


What We Are:



We are a Photography Club!
I accept All Photography
I accept Photo Manipulations
I accept some nudity, has to be covered!
I DO NOT accept, blood, guts, gore, guns!

Bear in Mind, Ex-po-zure is run primarily by "ONE" person babyducks So your patience as you enjoy your experience here, is greatly appreciated in advance.


How To Join:



You must ADD us to your DEVWATCH!
You must SEND A NOTE  requesting to Join the club, put "Join" in your subject line.
In your note you must add to the body that you agree to stay informed of club changes/news/happenings.

You must AGREE to the following:

It is required of YOU as a member to be informed of any changes that are made regarding Submissions, Contests, Features, Membership.
Communication is of paramount importance to me to ensure that the club will run as smoothly as possible. I periodically send out News Journals announcing important information about the club. It is YOUR responsiblity as a Member here to read these
Journals. I ask that you do not uncheck the Journal Feature in your devwatch!
If you do not stay informed, and you are asking questions when information has already been given out regarding your question, or we close for submissions and you send in
submissions in spite of the announcement. I will keep track of this type of behavior.
You will be given 3 chances to mess up. After the third you will lose your chance to submit to the club for a one month period of time.
Continual abuse of "ignorance" will lead to being banned from the club


The amount of time you spend participating, submitting to the gallery, entering Contests/Games, following Journal Features of Contests/Games is
totally up to you. I am not going to require you do any of the above to be a member.


Regarding the club avatar

Display it or not, your choice, no longer required.

If you choose to display it on your front page....other people see it.....join the club.....MORE expozure for you!

FAQ #81: How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?


Submission Guidelines:




Submissions will NO LONGER be entered into the club Gallery.
Instead we will enter your submission into one of our "Collections"
You will be given a screenshot of 12
submissions at a time, along with a link to follow to the Collection it was placed in.
From there you can find the ORIGINAL photo to comment and/or fav.


Submissions accepted by members only.
ONE SUBMISSION PER MONTH!

SUBMISSIONS will be closed every JUNE and DECEMBER!

This will give me time to regroup!


How to Submit



Send me a thumb of your deviation, I am no longer accepting links

How to send a thumb you ask?
Under your deviation is a "thumb" code, just copy/paste the entire thing into your note.

How do you Send a Thumb????? by Ex-po-zure

IF THE WORD "SUBMISSION" IS NOT WRITTEN IN THE SUBJECT LINE, YOUR SUBMISSION WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED!!!!


Please DO NOT SEND in more than one submission, this only adds to the amount of
time that I have to spend in the message center going through submissions.

Adm will try their best to keep up with the submissions.



Regarding Abusive Behavior and/or Language



We reserve the right to remove any member from our watch and also block them from the club, if they display any activity that is not conducive to community spirit.
Harassment of any Administrative staff will not be tolerated under any circumstances!



Questions? Complaints? Suggestions?



If you have a club-related question, complaint or suggestion, please note us
as we may not always have time to see your question on the front page, and we don't want to ignore you.
We'd like to answer any questions or concerns you have right away. We spend most of our time in the message center.
We would also would like to keep these kinds of concerns off the front page.
