Mason’s photographic endeavors began when he first got his hands on an SLR camera at the age of 16. Since then, photography has become a central element of his life.
Currently working with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, Mason’s multidisciplinary interests are brought together though his photography. Much of his portfolio is characterized by an ecological aesthetic, one which strives to illustrate nature in a state of pristine beauty. He brings his academic background to portraiture work as well, through a distinctive anthropological approach that seeks to truly capture the personalities of his subjects and their cultural backgrounds. Still much of his other work reaches no deeper than art for the sake of basic visual appeal, which stems back to his love of photography and strong appreciation for other forms of visual art.
In Mason’s unique approach to photography, each image is only half-complete upon initial capture. Every shot is individually detailed and enhanced in the effort to make the subject come to life. Most landscape and scenery shots within his galleries are tonemapped in post-processing, a detail oriented technique that (with a proper approach) can give any particular scene a “more than real” quality.
