Seth K. Hughes


Photographer, filmmaker and adventurer.

As a professional lensman, my passion lies at the confluence of travel, adventure and lifestyle photography. My goal is always to convey a deep feeling or reveal the essence of a subject through a compelling visual toolkit. Nuanced, natural light, three-dimensional compositions and frozen, dynamic moments in time. These are the elements that build a story, capture attention, beg questions and introduce the viewer to immersive new worlds and perspectives.

Originally from Jackson Hole, my love of photography began at a young age. The seed was planted by my grandmother who was an adept photographer and artist in her own right. She put cameras and photo albums in front of me which had a tremendous creative influence. With the Grand Tetons in my backyard, I was off and running. Ten years later I studied traditional art and multimedia at college in Seattle and went on to complete a Bachelor of Arts degree in photography at The Art Institute of Colorado in 2006. I have been shooting commercial and editorial assignments professionally ever since.

In 2014, my wife and I became location independent and we frequently roam across North America in our aluminum house on wheels. I'm always inspired by exploration, new collaborations, diverse experiences and what's out there just beyond my comfort zone.

Some clients include Visa, Chacos Footwear, National Geographic, Backpacker magazine, SKI magazine, Outside magazine, Wired magazine and Condé Nast.

I am also a proud Fujifilm X-Photographer ambassador.
