About Peter Hill

I began my love affair with photography when I was 15. A cover of American Photographer caught my eye in a newsstand. It was an Ansel Adams B&W landscape image. I was smitten.

Today I count as my inspiration not only Ansel Adams but other US photographers such as Wynn Bullock and John Sexton, France's Eugene Atget, and Australia's Max Dupain and Graeme McCarter.

I shoot exclusively with Canons, including the EOS 3 - the last film SLR made by Canon and which still surpasses most DSLRs today, eg it shoots at an incredible 10 fps.

In the digital realm, I shoot with the iconic Canon EOS 5D Mark II and the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III. I also shoot monochromes with a B&W Infrared-converted Canon EOS 5D Mark II.

My first solo exhibition - Fields of Focus and Light - held in 2014 has the distinction of being Australia’s first exhibition exclusively devoted to digital B&W infrared photography.
