David Hilliard (born 1964, Lowell, Massachusetts) is an American photographer. Hilliard is a fine arts photographer that mainly works with panoramic photographs. He draws inspiration from his personal life and those around him for his subject matter. Many of the scenes are staged, evoking a performative quality, a middle ground between fact and fiction. Hilliard's work is exhibited at the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts in the one-man show David Hilliard: Intimacies on display from March 7 until May 18, 2014.

He received his MFA from Yale University in 1994. He lives in Boston, Massachussetts and Maine.
