The World’s Most Creative and Inspiring Photo Adventure Vacations


Street, People, Fashion and Fine Art Photographer


Seymour Templar is a recognized photographer, widely published online and in various magazines. Complex.com selected him in 2012 as one of the “50 Greatest Street Photographers Right Now.”

Born in Belgium, Seymour Templar studied Fine Arts in Brussels, and has lived in New York City since 1992. In the Nineties a growing mistrust in the blatant commercialism of the art market led to a change in his career path. He began working as a product and furniture designer. However, his longing for a more rewarding field of research led him to pick up a camera, and he later on decided to pursue photography as a means for artistic research.

Bas Brinkman recently noted, “The photography of Mr. Templar presents itself to me just like a good script does. I do not have the feeling that things happen because of some plot but because of what people do. With this particular project [Social Lights], he helps me seeing humanity in staring at a screen. He is tender, gentle and lets his subjects slowly tell a story. I think that is quite an accomplishment.”

When Seymour is not on the road leading a photo adventure, he can usually be found shooting fashion, lifestyle & product as Creative Director & Main Photographer at Deboer Performance Wetsuits.
