This project for Fujifilm might just be the one I’m proudest of to date. THE GOAL: Photograph a National Park with the GFX 100S and GF120mm Macro. Welcome to my first visit to Zion National Park… an epic tale, told through the eyes of a single Macro lens.
Join Landscape, Travel and Professional Fujifilm X-Photographer Karen Hutton as she shares her illuminating journey as she travels through countries and landscapes with her GFX 50s. It’s a story brimming with a myriad of images and perspectives, each telling a delightful tale from diverse points of view.
I’m a paper freak. I love prints; I think they are vision made manifest. I love handling gorgeous fine art papers of all kinds. Consequently, it was a huge honor to be chosen by Fujifilm Global for their glorious Fine Art Calendar. Genre: Intimate Landscapes, from my personal collection. Printed on Fujicolor Crystal Archive Digital Pearl Paper. SWOON!
From Fujifilm Global: “American X-Photographer Karen Hutton shoots with the GF250mmF4 R LM OIS WR for her nature photography.” The project: take Fujifilm’s longest telephoto to date for the GFX 50S into some rugged natural landscapes and see what I could create.
“X-Photographer Karen Hutton has been waiting for the GFX system for 35 years. Learn more about Karen’s history and why the GFX 50S is ideal for her stunning landscape work in this video. All video was captured with X-T2 4K.

Whether on the west coast, east coast, or anywhere in between, the X-T2

For me, Macro Photography is filmic; the ultimate character study. It’s a way seeing, thinking, being. Macro Photography also offers a beautiful way of creating art, telling a story and seeing the grand design in everyday life. I discuss all this and more with Frederick on this episode of TWiP!
From the site:“Karen and I discuss her creative approach and drive, and the force behind her relentless creativity. We also discuss her decision to switch from Mac to Windows (but she still loves her iPad). And her path to finding her “perfect camera”… spoiler, it’s from Fujifilm!”
I chat with the amazing Steve Brazill about how I made this image “Forest of Enlightenment”. Plus, we explore creativity, finding your artistic voice and take bunch of other fun detours! Video: 52 min.
I’ve got a short-format show called “THE WOO with Karen Hutton”, wherein I muse upon Inspiration, Photography and Life. New show every Wednesday! I hope you have a listen – and if you enjoy it – SUBSCRIBE!
From the publication: “The colours of the world come alive in Hutton’s photographs, which are filled with the vibrant, rich and lush tones of nature. Meanwhile, her monochromatic images speak to the imagination of the viewer, through its poetic interpretation of reality.”
