Mason Mashon’s photography draws from a deep well of influence. Growing up in Vernon, BC, and having spent much of his adult life residing in Whistler, he honed his craft in a location known worldwide as the holy grail of action sports. Here is where his photography career began. Pursuing the sports he loved, Mashon became one of the most prolific Whistler ski, snowboard, and mountain bike photographers. As his passion for the lens grew, so did his repertoire of sports. Surfing had always been an infatuation for Mashon and it was a natural fit. A professional mountain biker in his own right, he has often been the subject of others’ lenses and has appeared in international magazines.
As an event presenter, Mashon has hosted the largest mountain bike festival in the world, Crankworx Whistler. In 2013, he launched UnderExposed, an action sports TV show that follows his life as a freelance action sports photographer. The show is now airing in Canada on APTN, and in the USA on Outside TV.
