Former newspaper photojournalist and long-time Blue Mountains resident David Hill captured the whole gamut of news reality for 30 years before switching
to tourism, heritage and lifestyle photoshoots in 2012. When not capturing the visual stories of high-end clients, he traipses the countryside in a
grubby hatchback in search of freelance feature stories, character profiles and travel yarns with journalist wife Ellen. From behind the lens, he has
frozen moments from within a Hercules, the top of a tree, a gutter, a toilet block, the back of a motorbike and a camel and still has the chemical
stains to prove his time in the darkroom. Sometimes he even gets to allow his lens to swing inwards to focus on the weird and wonderful imaginings
of the art.
