Sunflower, Sunset by Phillip Lara

Biography: My name is Phillip Lara, I usually go by Phil. I currently work in food services at Aims Community College. I graduated from Aims in the spring of 2023 with a video editing and television production degree. My goal as a landscape photographer is to bring my stories to life in hopes to inspire people and to leave people in awe with my work like my favorite photographers have done for me. Some photographers who have inspired me over the years are Alex Burke, Ben Horne, Alan Brock, Gavin Hardcastle and Nick Page. I was drawn to this form of art by a friend back in 2015 as well as being inspiration by different beautiful places in Colorado. Ever since then I have loved chasing sunrises, sunsets and autumn color.
