Seth K. Hughes

Commercial photographer and filmmaker.

I'm a Denver based commercial photographer and filmmaker. My passion lies at the confluence of travel, adventure and lifestyle storytelling. I strive as an image maker to always convey an emotion and reveal the heart of a subject through real experiences and expressive moments. My approach employs a visual toolkit incorporating nuanced light, three-dimensional compositions and dynamic, vanishing points in time.

The right mix of these elements can have a massive impact on storytelling, captivating attention, conveying a message and transporting viewers into immersive new worlds.

The seed of my photography career was planted at a young age by my grandmother, an adept artist in her own right. At seven years old, she gave me my first camera and several empty photo albums to fill. Growing up in Jackson Hole meant I had the Grand Tetons as my muse and I was off and running! Ten years later I went on to complete a Bachelor of Arts degree in photography at The Art Institute of Colorado. I've been photographing commercial and editorial assignments professionally since 2006. A client shortlist includes National Geographic, Condé Nast Traveler, Wired, Backpacker, Chaco Footwear, Fujifilm, Visa, W Hotel and New Mexico Tourism.

I'm always inspired by exploration, new collaborations and diverse experiences. My wife and I travel frequently across North America. Our aluminum house on wheels gives us the ability to roam freely, enjoy the outdoors and keep the stoke alive!

Additionally, I'm a proud Fujifilm X-Photographer ambassador. I speak and educate often at photography events across the United States.

Along with my email dispatches, I send out free wallpaper photographs each month to load on your mobile device!
