Mason Wood, NYC Member Since November 2009 Artist Statement My first camera was an old Pentax that my mother owned. Sadly the expense of film and developing and printing was something we could not afford, although I adored shooting black and white. Flash forward almost 20 years and digital photography comes into play with my marketing and PR career. I begin taking photos for myself, and then for arts organizations throughout southern Louisiana. By the time I arrive in NYC, I have extensive marketing journalism and broadcast video experience. In 2006 I became director of photography for an internationally known advertising company, managing a team of 11 and being responsible for marketing and sales photography, and video as well. I am currently self-employed with numerous clientele in NYC and New Orleans.
