Mason Dodds and Glacier Valley Photography Inc.

A Vulcan Alberta photo studio being close to Calgary has big advantages for all photographic clients.

Mason Dodds started Glacier Valley Photography Inc. in 1981 while posted with the RCMP in Stewart, British Columbia. Nestled at the end of the Portland Canal the numerous glaciers and valleys of the Coast Mountains at the south tip of the Alaskan Pan Handle were an inspiration to take a mild interest in photography to the next level.

The next 20 years were spent in numerous communities of Northern British Columbia where at one location the nearest traffic light was an eight-hour drive. Mason's photographic skills improved, acquisition of photographic equipment grew, as did the passion for the art of photography.

After 35 years the spurs were hung up and a residential based photography studio was opened up in Vulcan, Alberta. Calgary was his home before he joined the RCMP and with family close by and enjoying the small community living, Vulcan was an easy decision to establish a permanent location.

A big advantage a small residential based photography studio has over business locations in a larger center is flexibility. For a variety of reasons clients cannot always make themselves available at normal business hours. We are as flexible as necessary to ensure the client's needs are addressed.

Organization Affiliations and Continuing Education

Mason frequently attends workshops, seminars and training opportunities. Since 2001 he as been attending Image Exportations seminar held in July at Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island learning new lighting and posing techniques along with digital enhancements and from master photographers from all over North America to provided the best service possible. The only constant with digital photography is that it is ever changing. Affiliating with The National Association of Photoshop Professionals ensures our clients received the most up to date technology applied to their image. A unique inspiring workshop was attended in October 2009. Revealing Venus, was attended in on of Italy's smallest regions, Umbra. It is workshops like these, and through continuing education in concert with affiliating with various organizations, allows Mason to provide a positive and memorable photographic experience to his clients.

He is also proud to work with a dedicated group of photographers who donate time and skill to an organization helping families at a devastating time when a newborn has so little time left. Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep offers parents a no cost session and images and with their newborn who is struggling. An image of this unique gift of life with so little time is all that they will have. Each photographer have their own personal reason to be involved and each do so because they can.
