Shortly thereafter, he moved to New York City and began working with a slew of the fashion industry's most promising talents, including Mario Sorrenti, Phil Poynter, Cedric Buchet, Steven Meisel, David Sims, Craig McDean, Lachlan Bailey, Nick Knight, among others.
Select editorial credits, meanwhile, include the American and international editions of Vogue, GQ, Details, W, Man Of The World, and Wonderland magazines. Hill has also appeared in various print and commercial promotions for Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Zegna, Hugo Boss, Louis Vuitton, Giorgio Armani, Kenneth Cole, Belstaff, Carolina Herrera, and David Yurman.
Off-duty, he enjoys riding his motorcycle, training for triathlons, and working on his home in Upstate, New York.
