Hill moved to Vancouver and worked for R.H. Trueman until 1901-1902. He moved to Hawaii in 1902 and remained there for five years, appeared to have moved back to Vancouver in 1907 to work for J.M. White, then returned to Honolulu again. He was a staff photographer for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin from 1917-1924. He then operated his own studio beginning in 1925 until he left the Hawaiian Islands after Apr 1940 and retired to southern California. Hill was at one time married to Lillian Hacking (d. 1900) who was F.L. Hacking's sister. [16]
