Seth’s creativity is fueled by new experiences on the road and off the grid. From backpacking through Denali National Park to shooting commercial assignments in downtown Los Angeles, Seth requires a robust camera system that won’t weigh him down or fail in harsh conditions. Since discovering Fujifilm’s X system, Seth transitioned to these cameras and lenses and hasn’t looked back. Resulting in an upgrade of massive weight reduction, increased mobility and superb image quality. Currently the X-T4 is his go-to, enabling a new level of freedom and spontaneity to enter the picture.

It’s hard to ignore the call of the wild when you grow up in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. For Seth K. Hughes, it’s the driving force behind his creativity. Travel, nature, and the spirt of exploration are the elements that keep a camera in this storyteller’s hand.

At a young age, Seth began documenting the incredible natural world that lay at his doorstep and beyond. Fujifilm X Series has been right there along for the journey, since the very beginning. He loves the stunning image quality and finds the small form factor makes travelling light so much easier.

While many nature photographers choose to focus on sprawling vistas and wildlife wonders, Seth’s sights are set a little higher – literally! His unique and exciting challenge is astrophotography. Check out his video above, and you’ll quickly come to understand the importance of planning, the value of foreground elements, and the creative delights that can be had from experimentation.

Once you’ve absorbed all his advice, put it into practice and give yourself the chance to win a FUJIFILM X-S10 and XF70-300mmF4-5.6 R LM OIS WR. Make an image that takes Seth’s wisdom on board, then upload it using the ‘Enter Now’ button below by 11:59PM (EST) on July 31, 2022. You can also download a PDF with a summary of Seth’s advice, which is as follows:
