Hilder originally gained recognition as a fashion photographer in the 1970s
for magazines such as Vogue and POL in Sydney and Paris.
He has extended his work into theatre and film, including a commission by Jim Sharman
to create backdrops for the 2005 Festival of Sydney theatre production of Three Furies.

Throughout his career, Hilder has sought to capture
and a sensual elegance distinguishes all his work.
