This registration is only for professional photographers who are not employed by a media outlet such as a newspaper or established website. Credentials for media photographers should be requested through Matt Wixon, FISD Facilitator for Athletics, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parent volunteers will need to obtain football credentials through the appropriate group (Campus Head Football Coach, Band Director, Drill Team Director).
Please allow 2-3 working days to process your registration. All professional-photographer applicants must first have an approved background check through Frisco ISD. (https://appgarden10.app-garden.com/VolTrackTX043905.nsf)
OTHER VARSITY SPORTS AND SUB-VARSITY FOOTBALL
There is no fee, but non-media photographers must still have a background check and be referred to Human Resources to get a district photography badge. For photographers who would like to have a link to their professional website/galleries added to the Frisco ISD sports website, the fee is $200. (Note: Photographers who pay $400 for combined football venue access and a link to the Frisco ISD sports website do NOT need to pay an additional $200 for other sports.) Professional photographers for sub-varsity football and other sports must also coordinate with Brent Reese (email@example.com) at least 24 hours prior to the event.
All photographers requesting sideline access during a sporting event must submit to the following: (which also includes sub-varsity and middle school athletic events)
A background check will need to be completed online. (http://www.friscoisd.org/about/resources-and-information/background-checks). Please register under "DEPARTMENTS "ATHLETIC PHOTOGRAPHERS ONLY".
Once a background check is cleared, email Brent Reese with confirmation of background approval and you will be sent the Athletics Registration Link.
Upon completion of the items above, a badge will be provided by FISD HR to validate compliance with the district's new policy. Please bring a check (made out to Frisco ISD) upon arriving at HR. See "badge pay schedule" below. (Varsity Football, please see #5).
This new ID badge must be visible while taking photos at any FISD sanctioned sporting event.
