During a creative journey to find the cure for insomnia, the idea for Level Exposure was born. These mostly nocturnal expeditions rapidly developed into an obsession for exploration and passion for the rediscovery of the world around us. Level Exposure was created as a way to brand that adventure, a way to inspire people’s pride in their local communities through photographic expression. From cityscapes to sunsets, midnight photo-ventures to abandoned explorations, Level Exposure spawned its own unique way of capturing them and with it the hopes to adorn all types of walls with the spectacular views. Stocked with the ever-increasing, breathtaking locations that we “bring to light”, Level Exposure is here to help you find the perfect piece for your home or the inspiring photo to hang in your office.
