2015 Congressional High School Art Competition

For the past 4 years the Topeka West photography program has entered pieces to the Congressional High School Art Competition that is sponsored by Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins.  And for the past 4 years Topeka West has consistently placed in the top four places!

I am pleased to announce that once again a Topeka West photographer has placed in the top 4...and that student is senior Alex Gourlay! Additionally, the top 20 pieces have been showcased on Congresswoman Jenkins' Facebook page and visitors could vote for the best online piece.  The winner of that category is Topeka West junior Isabella Carazzai!!

Please congratulate both of these fine photographers and view their winning images below.


 Alex Gourlay, senior          Trippy Triangles, 4th place



Isabella Carazzai, junior          Galaxy, Online Winner

New Work: Digital Photography 2 & Advanced Photography

Not a lot to state here.  The photos speak all for themselves!  This is easily one of the best galleries of images from the Digital Photography 2 and Advanced Photography classes that has been posted this year!!  What a really great group of students I have this year.  I'm really looking forward to summer break but will be sad to see several of these budding photographers move on with their academic careers.

Please enjoy the gallery!!
