Abstract

Deep optical surface photometry in the R-band is presented for the three spiral galaxies NGC 1003, NGC 5533 and NGC 6674. The luminosity profiles, derived by fitting ellipses to the isophotes, have been decomposed into bulge and disk contributions using the method proposed by Kent (1986). In forthcoming papers the profiles will be combined with kinematical data from HI radio synthesis observations, to study the mass distribution of a larger sample of spiral galaxies.
