Hi, I’m Hillary Campbell! I am a web designer and photographer.
I began experimenting with web design and graphic design in 1998. I moved to Los Angeles in 2002 and word gradually got out that I was fluent in HTML and CSS. Before I knew it, friends, co-workers, and referrals began pouring in for websites. In 2013 I finally taught myself to use and build with WordPress; it is now my preferred content management system. To date, I have designed, built, and maintained hundreds of websites.
I began a professional career as a photographer in 2006. When my father passed away, I inherited his bevy of 35mm camera bodies and an impressive collection of high-quality lenses, which transformed the way I thought about photography as a career. I am capable of shooting 35mm, medium format, and digital photographs; now shooting still-life, headshots and portraits, interiors and exteriors, food, cocktails, and products.
I currently live and work in Los Angeles in a small neighborhood which is just a 15-minute bike ride from Venice Beach. I spend a lot of time at my desk and a lot of time with one eye closed (aka taking pictures), but I also enjoy walking, rollerblading, hiking, singing and writing songs, drawing/sketching, painting, creating graphic art, seeing concerts, and watching stand-up comedy or documentaries. My favorite songs to sing are “Red House” and “Me & Bobby McGee”. My favorite sport to watch is Basketball, though I’ve grown an affinity for Baseball over the last seven years. My favorite players are Karl Malone and Brandon Crawford. When I was young my favorite band was “New Kids on the Block”. My first concert was The Beach Boys, whom I saw when I was about eight years old. I know all of the words to “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted” by Tupac and Snoop Dogg. I strongly dislike the smell of vanilla.
I am a free spirit with a busy mind; one that is constantly inspired and in need of stimulation. I like to rollerblade, explore my city, and travel abroad. I am a huge fan of the Oxford comma. I am also a piano-playing songwriter and singer/performer. I book the live musical entertainment for a local pub (which is why my weekends are always eaten away). I stay up late, and I love my puppies.
