About Gabriel Hill Photographer

Read about Swiss Portraiture Photographer Gabriel Hill


Basel's first choice for high profile and celebrity portrait photography


Pola by Micaela Schäfer

Gabriel Hill is a commercial portraiture and editorial photographer from Basel, who loves nothing more than travelling through Switzerland and the world thanks to his work.

He specializes in high profile and celebrity portraiture and editorial photography and works with various international publications.
Gabriel Hill Studio is dedicated to fulfilling the needs and expectations of our clients whilst delivering the highest service in production. From estimation to the completion of any project in stills, motion, or branded content we endeavor to execute all creative ideas whilst also striving to use the smallest environmental footprint possible.

He doesn't believe in the cliché of the lonely and taciturn photographer, and loves working with his team and being close to clients. 

In addition to being a portrait photographer for newspapers, magazines, agencies, and companies, and when he's not speaking for himself in 3rd person, Gabriel likes spending time with his cats Willhelmina and Tosca, loves playing piano and pizza avocado and watching documentaries.
