Seth K. Hughes is a professional photographer who shoots travel and lifestyle images for editorial and commercial clients. After living and working in Denver for 12 years, Seth and his wife moved out of their comfortable, downtown home to embark on a road less traveled. Now, they live in a 25-foot Airstream trailer and tow it around much of North America. Most recently, they drove up to the northern reaches of Glacier National Park and Banff National Park.
Seth thrives on exploring new places and photographing the landscapes and people that make a place unique. Nothing fuels his creativity more than these experiences on the road. His lightweight and powerful FUJIFILM X-T10 camera and FUJINON lenses are always within reach. After completing a full year of travel and adventure, he’s taken some time to look inward to reflect on what matters most during the holidays and documenting those moments with his X-T10 camera.
“This time of year, I ponder the concept of ‘home’ and what that word means to me,” says Seth. “For some, home is a geographic place, a neighborhood or even a specific address. For others, what makes a home are the people and community that surround them. In other words: friends and family. Personally, I find the latter to be true.
“My house is on wheels and I’m rarely in the same place for more than two weeks. My wife and I are blessed with the ability to travel extensively. However, we miss that feeling of connectedness with our loved ones during the holidays. That is why we traversed south to California after spending autumn in the Northern Rockies. When we left the ice fields and glaciers of Alberta, winter was nearly upon us. We passed through a multitude of landscapes and climates—from snowy mountain ranges to dry desert plains. It was a long haul, but there’s nothing better than spending the holidays with those we call home.”
