Bill Frakes


Summit Sports Workshop

Bill has been in the sports photography industry for decades. He has traveled around the world photographing the top sporting events  with a large focus on remote triggering. 

My Story

Bill is the ultimate remote artist — his use of multiple remote cameras at Kentucky Derbies, track meets and basketball arenas has made him the authority of innovation. But as one of Sports Illustrated’s premier photographers for more than 20 years, his many talents go from innovative portraits to solid coverage of Super Bowls and Olympics. A Nebraska native who attended schools in Arizona and Kansas, he was named NPPA Newspaper Photographer of the Year in 1983 while on the staff of The Miami Herald. At the workshop, he will talk of the wide range of his experiences while sharing his expertise in remote camera installation.
