I need the alt attribute of my image to be the title of the page it is being viewed on. any ideas?

class StaffPage extends Page{
static $has_one = array(
'Photo' => 'Image'
function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Images", new ImageField('Photo'));
return $fields;

Check out the Image API
There are a lot of different methods that you can use but I think this should be a good solution:

<img src="$Photo.getFullPath" alt="$Title"/>
