About Me


About Mason

Hello, my name is Mason Benning and I am a born and raised Calgarian. I have been a photographer and videographer in the city for about 10 years.


My love of photography and video started in highschool and eventually led to a certificate of photography from Mount Royal University then a Bachelors Degree in Journalism (my main interest being in photography and video of course).


Throughout my photography career, I have acquired extensive experience in photo and video production as well as editing through a variety of paid and volunteer positions such as:


  • Photographer and Media Specialist at the Institute for Community Prosperity and Trico Changemakers Studio.

  • Photojournalist and videographer for the Calgary Journal.

  • Photojournalist and videographer for Solent Journalism in England.

  • Videographer and Video Editing Coordinator for CIR Realty in Calgary.

  • Photographer for events such as The Art Of: Leadership for Women.

(Fun fact: this event included the first full portrait session I had done to this point and it was a photo-op with academy award winning actress Geena Davis.)

  • Portfolio and performance photography and video for dance performance.

  • Portrait photographer for families and individuals.

  • Instagram
