Seth K. Hughes

Commercial and editorial photographer

I'm a Denver commercial and editorial photographer. While I live in Colorado, I travel frequently on editorial assignments and for commercial work. My passion lies at the confluence of travel, lifestyle and visual storytelling. As an image maker, my focus is almost always on conveying an emotion. Revealing what is unique, relatable and engaging about a subject through a series of expressive frames. With fifteen years of photography experience, I've developed a visual toolkit that I employ when storytelling. I specialize in blending nuanced light, three-dimensional layers and immersive, dynamic moments in time.

Early on

The seed of my photography career was planted at a young age by my grandmother. She was an adept artist in her own right. At seven years old, she gave me a Kodak Instamatic and several empty photo albums to fill. Growing up in Jackson Hole I had my family, friends and Grand Teton National Park as a muse. I hit the ground running! From there I studied multimedia in Seattle and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in photography at The Art Institute of Colorado in Denver. 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. As a result, my wife and I travel far and wide across North America. Our aluminum house on wheels gives us the ability to roam freely, enjoy the outdoors and keep the stoke alive!

Also, 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!
