Dallas Color Run

Earlier in the month I threw out a suggestion about reaching out to other film groups, both locally and across the US. One of those groups is a film group down in Miami, last year they did a meetup at Miami's Color Run, and it made for some fun, colorful images (of course we won't have the tropical backdrop that Miami does, but we should still have similar fun, colorful images!) After I see if we have enough interest, I'm going to approach the people who put this event on to see if there is a possibility that we could get press passes for our group to get close to the action!

This is a very messy event, as you can see from the photos!

      I'm walking down from the north side parking lot

    • Laidric S.

      Yes, I'm on the train right now, I'll be there in a few minutes

    Okay, sorry that I haven't done this sooner, next time I organize an event, I'll do a better job! We are meeting up at the Fairgrounds, the race is going to be held all within where the Fair is held. As far as parking goes, there isn't really anything indicated on the map. I would highly suggest using the Dart Green line, as the MLK stop is a block away from one of the main entrances to the fair grounds, and that is where the start of the race is.

      I'm going to be at the MLK stop at 7:30, if anyone wants to meet me there

    Here's some helpful tips for getting the Color out afterwards:

    For everyone who plans on getting into the clouds of color, these will help protect your cameras, only $6 for two at amazon, or you should be able to find it locally at Arlington Camera or Competitive:

    And then I would recommend getting a cheap UV filter to go over the front of your lens.

      No, as spectators (which the other groups are as well), we are there to watch the runners [and take photos], the prices are only if you want to run in the event and if you want to run as part of a team, or if you are running solo. At this point we are our own little group!

      I thought I had to pay, that's great! Thanks! I don't think I want to run ...

    Looks like things were settled between Max and The Color Run without dragging it out in court:

      I do like his idea of setting up a charity to help photographers if they find themselves in situations like this and they aren't members of PPA or the ASMP...

      It went from "... would rather spend $500,000 on lawyers than be extorted by (Jackson).”

      to "We both had a genuine misunderstanding about the terms of our agreement..."

    I went ahead and contacted the Color Run about us shooting. They said that we could get as close to the action as we possibly can, the only thing that they ask is that we don't get directly onto the course when people are running. To stand off to the sides. I think that this is going to be a fun event!

    • Laidric S.

      Okay, the name of that other group is Dallas Photography Group, I shot the organizer an email asking him how the run was last year, how close there were able to get and did they have to sign any waivers from the Color Run.

      February 15, 2014

    • Marc

      I bet they are under fire now, so we'll see what will transpire with their policies.

  • Laidric S.

    Okay, I just heard back from Wade, he is an organizer over in the Dallas Photography Group. I noticed that they are planning a meetup for the Color Run as well, and are watching this whole mess as closely as we are

    Here's Wade's reply to me:

    Hi Laidric,
    I did indeed read the articles. Its disappointing.
    I have shot the last 3 or 4 runs with no problems or waivers, but I haven't been asked to use my photos.
    I'm not sure if you've read both side of the issue or not, but it sounds like we aren't getting all of the facts. I'm going to keep an eye on it and see. At this moment I'm keeping it up, but if it getts messy I may pull the event.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Wade
