Mark Seymour is based in London but his photography; both documentary wedding and leading training workshops on reportage street photography, has taken him to many countries around the world. Mark has a passion for photographing real people and their day to day lives and experiences. Travelling enables Mark to capture some of the unique cultural qualities of the places and the people he visits.
As part of a professional vacation to Dallas, USA, Mark found himself immersed in the world of the American fire fighter, documenting their lives both at work and at play.
It was important for Mark to be discrete and blend into the background so that the fire crew could complete their work. This enabled him to capture the highs and lows, the emotions and diversity of the fire fighters role and the public that they help.
The contrasting images of work and free time revealed the true characters of the fire fighters he photographed.
Copies of fine art prints and ‘Mark Seymour: a personal journal, from the city to the ranch, a collection of photographs from Dallas are available by contacting Mark directly.
Mark offers a range of documentary street photography training workshops and also gives talks regarding his personal documentary projects.
