Born in Sydney, Hilder has always been attracted to the exotic: the 1959 Brazilian classic, Black Orpheus, was the first film that influenced him. In 1969 he set up his own studio and became one of the most innovative fashion photographers of the time, working in Paris and Sydney. He took portraits of prominent identities and actors with the Sydney Theatre Company. Recently his photography has shifted more towards a romantic theme, suggesting the viewer has happened upon a scene in a film.
