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 pf 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 unique images, improve your photography and have some incredible memories that you will want to share with your friends and family.
My courses are aimed at people with an interest in extending their photography and we have keen amateurs to professional photographer join us. You do not need to have a Nikon but you should know your 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 hitting the streets and towns and getting up close to 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 direct though Nikon UK or contact me for more information.

Mark travels 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, Mark staged a successful exhibition of his Indian street photography to raise awareness and funds for the charity.
Mark’s latest exhibition, to be held at London Gallery Andipa, covers the emotional story of his 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, including appearances on Sky News with on-line articles with the Daily Mail and the BBC.
