ExposureManager shutting down

->> Wow, just went to create an event gallery in ExposureManager whom I've been with for 10 years and found this message at the login:

On March 1, 2018, we will be shutting down ExposureManager after 13 years of service. We thank you for being an ExposureManager customer and wish your business the best of luck in the future. We recommend Shoot proof and Zenfolio as alternatives. All final payments will be processed through Dwolla on the normal schedule. You will have access to your account for uploading and any cleanup you’d like to do through March 15, 2018.

So, what's everyone using for event and wedding viewing and print sales?

->> I have had good luck with Pixieset.com. You can customize the look and style, add photos and videos, and they charge a fair monthly fee instead of a percentage of sales.

->> I'd like to know too. I've been trying to upload photos for an exposure manager order that came in yesterday, but their server keeps hanging up. Very frustrating, as I now have to find a new site to host my photos. Exposure Manager was easy. Not sure why they are going out of business.

->> I don't know about EM being sold. The platform hasn't changed or been updated since I started using it 13 years ago. I originally used Printroom.com, but when they didn't support MAC users, I switched to EM.

I've temporarily set up a Pixieset account. It's okay. You can't have folders trees like EM. You can have sets inside of a collection, but it's only one layer deep.

Does anyone have a better solution for event photogs? I only do a handful of events a year that I put online for print sales.

->> They stopped managing that sites years ago is what I heard. We made the switch to photo shelter last year and never looked back. I remember last spring getting a call from a local post office in California saying they had hundreds of packages that were dropped off from Exposure Manager but had no postage on them and if we wanted to cover the postage on our packages they would ship them out. The new owners of that site ran it into the ground.

->> Just found this over on Dpreview.com:
I've been with ExposureManager for 10+ years and was similarly concerned/puzzled/frustrated by their temporary disappearance in October 2016. The story I was given upon their reappearance is this:

1. Donovan founded the company to help his wife with her photography business; that they could also scale the thing to serve other photographers was just icing on the cake.

2. As her business has changed, he created another company (17 Hats?) to help in new areas.

3. 17 Hats subsequently attracted a substantial amount of VC investment.

4. Virtually all EM resources were pulled away to work on 17 Hats, leaving just a skeleton crew to oversee EM.

5. I was advised that there's no particular hurry, but I should keep an eye out for an alternative fulfillment company.
