Photographers’ work featured in new book


The Association of Texas Photography Instructors (ATPI) unveiled volume five of the Best of Texas Scholastic Photography at the winter conference held at UTA Friday, Feb. 24. 

The book features images selected from almost 35,000 images submitted in ATPI contests during the past five years. It will be a resource for photographers throughout the world – not merely in Texas – for years to come.

Since 1990, ATPI has worked with students and instructors in more than 4,9000 high schools and middle schools in the state to achieve a higher quality of knowledge and teaching of photography.

Volume five features work from the following Aledo students and graduates who were taught by teachers Linda Greenwood and Emily Pyeatt Arnold: Ava Bathurst, Kaylee Halfmann, Megan Hoke, Alyssa Lively, Chloe Mahle, Alex Mount, Reagan Petersen, Marissa Powell, Jordan Prokell and Taylor Tiberg.

Kaylee Halfmann’s image was selected for the book’s jacket cover. The image of the girls track team practicing was also featured in the 2022 Ledoian.
