Interview with: Mark Seymour
Company Name: Mark Seymour Photography
Location / Coverage: London, UK, Europe
How did the business get started and who works at Mark Seymour Photography?
I started the business over fifteen years ago and I work by myself. I have kept the company small so that I can concentrate on a smaller number of weddings, focusing on each and every bride and their unique wedding, which enables me to give the bridal couple outstanding customer service, in addition to the great set of storytelling images of their day.
Had you always wanted to be a photographer?
I’ve been a photographer really all my life; picking my first camera up at the age of just five years old. I’ve always loved capturing my family and friends, and recording the emotions and events of people’s lives.
Can you remember what the first picture you took was of?
It was of my brother with an old Kodak Box Brownie… here’s the proof!
Which areas of the UK do you cover?
Although most of the weddings I photograph are around London, Berkshire and Surrey, I photograph around the UK at a range of different locations. In addition I have been fortunate to have been asked to travel all over Europe to photograph brides’ special days.
