Seth K. Hughes


Photographer, filmmaker and adventurer.


As a professional editorial and commercial storyteller, I interweave immersive narratives with compelling visuals. On location and on demand. With an eye for nuanced light, three dimensional compositions and expressive moments, I'm able to grip attention and rouse feelings on a palpable level. My images convey the essence of an inspired life of hard work, adventure and fulfillment. I live and breathe these tenets as an independent artist, passionate outdoorsman and nomadic traveller. 

I developed a love for images growing up in Jackson Hole. My mother and grandmother were artists who raised me with a camera in my hands from a young age. With the Grand Tetons in my backyard the rest was history. In Seattle I studied traditional art and multimedia, then returned to the Rocky Mountains and graduated with a BA in photography from The Art Institute of Colorado in Denver. I have been shooting professionally since graduation in 2006.

More recently my wife and I moved into an aluminum house on wheels. As of 2014 we've been traveling full-time with our brindle boxer and 25 foot Airstream. My inspiration is constantly fueled with new collaborations, diverse experiences and endless exploration.

I'm a proud Fujifilm X-Photographer ambassador, I collaborate with clients like Visa, Chacos Footwear, National Geographic, Backpacker magazine, SKI magazine, Outside magazine, Wired magazine and Condé Nast.


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