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.
