Who I Am


I’m Tom Hill. I qualified as a professional photographer in 1985. It didn’t take long for my photography clients to start asking for photos to display on the internet as opposed to traditional print and brochure output. As a result, in the early 1990’s I started learning about how websites worked.

As a result I started building basic websites in straightforward old HTML. I took a Master’s Degree in photography in 2000, where I discovered that I was a reasonably competent writer as well as a photographer.

As a result, I began to write search engine friendly content for websites as well as providing photographs. With the advent of WordPress, I began building sites from templates that were slicker-looking than the old fashioned HTML table structure. For a short time, before search engine optimisation became dependent more on social media than a website’s own content, I would offer a ‘Page 1 of Google or it’s free’ guarantee.

Unfortunately, that’s no longer possible but I do still have a very good idea of how search engines work and how to produce content that works well in search results.
