While at the Venice Film Festival for the premier of Imagine More, Bill did an interview with one of the Manfrotto Imagine More Manifesto Twitter contest winners, Frédéric Bernard-Payen.
Interested in what goes into capturing the perfect sports shot? British Journal of Photography interviewed Bill about how he freezes the action to capture the emotion of the game. The full interview is now available on the British Journal of Photography Web site.
Registration is now open for the 2011 NMC Photo Safari at Jackson Hole May 11-13. This unique workshop allows you to walk in the footsteps of Ansel Adams and Tom Mangelsen, while Bill Frakes and Don Henderson make fresh tracks along side you. Visit the NMC site for more information.
Thanks for your skill, kindness and professionalism Langston! I'm gonna miss you mightily in the office.
The good news is now we can spend more time at the Ajax.
John Ed Bradley wrote a book called The Best There Ever Was --which is terrific by the way--and when I saw the title I thought he was writing about Langston.
But John Ed is an LSU guy so sadly his brilliant book is about something entirely different, but the title could be on Langston's biography.
Usually I write about photography in this space, and in a way this post is too.
For a whole bunch of years Langston has been a great friend to those of us who've worked with him. His knowledge and easy going we will get it done style have helped me make images with an economy of motion.
