Mark Seymour – Observational Documentary Street Photographer
Street photography falls within the documentary genre of photography, also known as photojournalism, reportage and photorealism. I’ve been a professional photographer for over twenty years and I’ve developed my unique style of observational documentary photography.
Photography is not just my profession, my job – it’s my passion, it is a part of who I am, and my personal documentary photography although is captured in varied and diverse contexts, really imparts something special into my professional wedding photography style.
As a Nikon UK ambassador, I am proud to offer a range brilliant street photography workshops around the world. I want to inspire you as a photographer when you join me on one of my workshops, by giving you more than just a workshop, they are an experience – they are the adventure that is life.
My photography is about making memories, and I want you to take away a set of great images, improve your photography and have some incredible memories that you will want to share with your friends and family.
All the courses are aimed at people with an interest in expanding their photography skills and experiences,whether you are keen amateur to a full-time professional photographer your welcome to join us.
You do not need to have a Nikon but you should know the camera that you’re shooting with, and have a laptop with editing software, The only other thing you will need is a good pair of shoes because these workshops are about walking the streets and getting up close to capture local people’s daily lives.
I am adding new courses all the time as I find new places that inspire me, so sign up for my newsletter below to be the first to know. You can book directly through Nikon UK or contact me for more information.

I’ve been fortunate to travel around the world working with Nikon as an ambassador to lead documentary street photography training workshops and in 2016 in association with The Hope Foundation and Virgin Money, staged a successful exhibition of my Indian street photography to raise awareness and funds for the charity.
My latest exhibition was held held at Londons Gallery Andipa, and covers the emotional story of my father’s last years following a diagnosis of dementia, in a series of uncompromising and honest photographs that drew attention from the world’s press and social media,and appearances on Sky News with on-line articles with the Daily Mail and the BBC.
