Official Photographers for the 8th Annual Drumstick Dash

The Roanoke Rescue Mission loved the photos we took last year so they have asked us to come back again this year on Thanksgiving morning for the 8th Annual Drumstick Dash. 

This is a major benefit activity of the Roanoke Rescue Mission and is a major photo opportunity for Exposure Roanoke to perform a public service for the Mission. Please select one of the 15 locations below and reserve your spot by adding a comment below.

Here is a copy of our official invitation:

"There will be over 15,000 participants - runners, walkers, babies in strollers, dogs, family groups, church groups, volunteers holding signs & banners, and street side musicians - dressed in running gear and costumed up as well! We are interested in photographs of all the above. To see examples of previous years, see our website at

The locations that we are most interested in having photographs are:

1   Starting line on Franklin Road by SunTrust Plaza
2   Day Ave between 1st and 2nd Street
3   3rd Street at 1st Baptist Church
4   Church Ave at 1st Street
5   Church Ave by Oakey's at the Orvis Dog Water Station

12  Norfolk Avenue between Jefferson & 1st Street
13  Campbell Avenue between 1st Street and finish line
14  City Market area where people are milling around after race
15  Race winners at the Awards Ceremony on the City Market

We would like photos of people in action, any musician you see playing, people in costumes, dogs, etc. Fun shots! After the race, please turn in a disc to the Rescue Mission Main Lobby Reception with your 25 best pictures. Be sure to put your name on the disc so we know which ones are yours! 

Thank you for participating.

...please reply to this Meetup by commenting below to indicate which location you would like to go to for photos.

It is just that simple: once you have taken the photos just select your favorite 25 photos then put them on disc and bring them to the Rescue Mission Lobby (NO Model Realeases are required) so that they can be posted to the Rescue Mission website. Thanks for supporting this important public service.

    I also don't typically make a CD, but prefer to email them. I typically use Box.com which allows me to upload the pics and then send a link for download. Do you have an email address I can use?

    November 27, 2013

    • Art S.

      You can send them to me at [masked]

      November 27, 2013

      Just emailed them to you. Thanks for delivering them for me.

    Wonderful shooting today Exposure Roanokers - let's each of us post some photos on line here and each pick out our favorite 25 to put on a card or a disk to drop by the Rescue Mission at 402 4th St SE in the next couple of days. Thank you for sharing some of your Thanksgiving day with the runners at the Drumstick Dash and the volunteers at the Ronaoke Rescue Mission.

    I'll do 1 and 13.

    I know we're donating the pics to the mission so they have copyright permission. But will we be able to model releases of runners afterwards in the event that we submit pics like these for photo contests? Not that I think I will enter any contests, but just out of curiosity.

    November 27, 2013

    • Jonathan N.

      As far as I understand being in a public venue you don't need model releases. Just don't try to sell the photos and u should be ok. Happy shooting :)

      November 27, 2013

    • Jonathan N.

      Since their is no assumption of privacy in public.

    Is there anyone willing to carpool? I live in Pulaski but leery of trying to find a parking spot in Roanoke with 15,000 participants. Anyone between Pulaski and Roanoke driving up? I'd be willing to meet you.

    October 28, 2013

    • Dave E.

      I'll carpool with you. I don't mind driving, if you want to meet me in Christiansburg.

      November 22, 2013

    • Hung L.

      Thanks Dave. Since I don't know the town that well, can someone assign me a station?

      November 27, 2013

  • Jake A.

    Still not 100% sure if I'll make it into town for this one.

    November 27, 2013

  • Kathy

    I want to check out 5 and then I will do #6.

    November 24, 2013

    • Art S.

      That will be great Kathy.

      November 24, 2013

  • Steve C.

    OK - I've been AWOL long enough. I'll pick up some of the loose ends. Maybe start at Church and make my way to Gainesboro...

    November 24, 2013

    • Art S.

      Nice to see you getting back in the swing of things Steve. Meet me at the finish line if you can afterwards so I can get a copy of few of your shots for Leslie at the Rescue Mission.

      November 24, 2013

  • joe

    I'll try to get #14, maybe some of #13, too. Happy shooting!!

    November 22, 2013

    • Art S.

      OK Joe, you should be able to get some pretty good shots of some pretty tired runners and some pretty happy winners. I'll meet you near the awards table to get a copy of a few of your shots for the Rescue Mission.

      November 22, 2013

  • Art S.

    Welcome Dave Harrison - welcome to the group for the Drumstick Dash. Which of the 15 photo spots above do you think you would like shoot at to capture photo of the runners and the support people? As you can see below we have members signed up for spots[masked] and 13. If you could just reply and indicate your preference of spots. Again, thanks for signing up!

    November 22, 2013

  • Art S.

    It is wonderful that so many Exposure Roanoke are willing to give up some of their Thanksgiving day to capture memories for the runners and for the Rescue Mission. I would like to be able to give a few of those memory photos to Leslie, the volunteer coordinator at the Rescue Mission, after the race. If a few of you will please meet me at the finish line (or at the awards stage) after the race I would like to get a copy of a few of your photos so the Rescue Mission Board members can have photos for their meeting on Thanksgiving afternoon. I will be wearing my Exposure Roanoke name tag. Thank You all very much.

    November 22, 2013

  • Dave E.

    I'd like to take 13 also, but could possibly also cover another nearby location like 9 or 11.

    November 22, 2013

    • Art S.

      That will be great Dave. Since we do not have all the points covered it will be wonderful if you can stop by the Hotel and the Museum to get a couple of shots of runners with the landmarks in the background. Thanks!

      November 22, 2013
