Donal Hill -Arizona Highways Wildlife Photographer
I have been a serious outdoor photographer for nearly four decades, photographing nature’s many diverse subjects (plus so much more). My photographic archives include underwater subjects from the Eastern, Western and South Pacific Oceans, birds and large North American mammals from Alaska and Canada throughout
the lower 48 states, and far-flung scenic locations from the Pacific through the US, and to Europe.
I have always been attracted to bright, saturated color, interesting shape and exquisite detail in nature. I especially enjoy making tight, intimate portraits of wildlife, whether fish, fowl, flora or other fauna.
My images currently are on display at The Artists Gallery in Flagstaff. They have been exhibited at The Arboretum at Flagstaff and twice at San Diego’s Birch Aquarium at Scripps. In 2016 I collaborated with Arizona Highways Magazine and author Brooke Bessesen in Wildlife Guide: 125 of Arizona’s Native Species (Bessesen, AZ Dept. of Trans., 2016). My images also have been published in other books, including What Color Would You Be to Hide in the Sea? (Birch Aquarium, 2011); and The Rockfishes of the Northeast Pacific (Love, Yoklavich, Thorsteinson, Univ. Calif., 2002). Currently I am collaborating with another writer on a book on the best of Flagstaff’s architecture. Finally, my images have been published in many diverse publications, including the Arizona Daily Sun, San Diego Union-Tribune, La Jolla Light, Pacific Daily News, Surfer Magazine, Popular Photography Magazine and Australia’s People Magazine.
