Morphology and elliptically averaged luminosity profiles have been derived from CCD surface photometry of thirteen Seyfert galaxies. Apparent V and I magnitudes, V - I color index, as well as absolute Mv and MI magnitudes have been calculated. V and I luminosity profiles of Mk 10, Mk 79, Mk 358, Mk 618, Mk 352, and Mk 110, are adjusted by the usual model bulge plus disk with structural parameters comparable to those observed in normal spirals. The averaged luminosity profiles of Mk 50, Mk 124, Mk 348, and 3C227 are fitted by r exp -1/4 law with structural parameters similar to those observed in ellipticals and red compact galaxies. Mk 42 and NGC 985 show disturbed luminosity profiles.
