After studying photography at Berkshire College of Art & Design, David went on to deal in rare and collectable cameras before moving into a career in the music industry, co-founding the Nuphonic record label and running it for a decade. He then expanded into event production and music consultancy, working for record companies, brands and advertising agencies.
In 2003 he became aware of the work of Bill Bernstein, the New York-based photographer who documented the city’s burgeoning disco scene of the late 70s. David contacted Bill and together they began going through well-over four hundred rolls of film, which culminated in Disco – The Bill Bernstein Photographs, published by Reel Art Press in November 2015.
It was through the Disco project that David met Serena Morton, and in September 2015 they opened Morton Hill, a dedicated photography gallery, next door to Serena’s fine art gallery on West London’s Ladbroke Grove.
In 2017 this became David Hill Gallery and shows the work of both contemporary and 20th century photographers.
