Dennis Hill studied photography at Los Angeles City College, making the Dean’s List, and continued his studies at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. As an alum, Dennis was Vice-President of the Alumni Board of Directors and a committee chair of the Alumni Council.

Dennis has worked with companies such as Coca-Cola, Pizza Hut, Toyota, Nissan, Yamaha, Honda Motorcycles and Hilton Hotels.  He also works with a number of regional and local businesses for which he produces photographs, web sites and other marketing materials.  Dennis’ architectural photography has encompassed many architecturally significant homes, as well as new construction and commercial development throughout California.  In recent years the primary focus of his work has been on creating concept-based images to implement branding and marketing strategies.

Dennis has photographed a number of HABS/HAER/HALS projects, including the Claremont Heights Lemon Packing House, the Hollywood Reservoir Pumping Station, Oaklawn Bridge, Odella Ranch, Vladeck Center and Ambassador College.  A major undertaking was the San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge project.  Over 300 4×5” black and white photographs were taken from helicopters, boats, and various locations throughout the City, as well as from the Bridge itself, taking two years to complete.  Dennis and Frank Deras collaborated as co-photographers on this project. This project was recognized by the California Preservation Foundation’s Design Awards for HAER documentation.
