"Years of International Experience!"
Graham T. Mason was born in St. Louis, MO. He studied photography in Florence, Italy and cinematography at Columbia College in Chicago. Shortly after graduating with a degree in Director of Photography, Graham spent a year driving across America working on various films, TV shows, and web series, leading him to landing in Los Angeles.
Graham always dreamed of starting a production company with a purpose to inspire and serve the independent filmmaker. He turned his dream into reality when he started GTM Pictures in LA. He serves there as CEO. His ingenuity and imagination allow him to nurture ideas to fruition, and to execute a vision for productions of all sizes.
His inspirations include Robert Elswit, Elon Musk, and Roger Deakins. He is especially drawn to create images at the “magic hour.” That is the hour just after sunrise and just before sunset. The light is especially beckoning, softer, and evocative at that time compared to other parts of the day or night. So it is a fleeting time of possibilities for a photographer.
His IMDb summary includes work on more than 20 projects including The Vortex, Turbine Cowboys, and California Solo (recognized at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012). He has had a commercial in the biggest, “most-super football game” on the planet, and worked on The Town directed by Ben Affleck. He is the VP Digital Creation and Director of Photography at Watching Paint Dry, LLC. On Twitter/Instagram he is: @GTM_Pictures.

What our friends are saying...
GTM pictures is a flawless solution. I have gone to them several times for production needs that are bigger than my available resources. There is nothing they cannot provide. Every time I work with GTM I am provided incredibly careful assistance from A to Z in my jobs needs. Masterful technical knowledge of all equipment, prompt communication, GTM always goes the extra mile for me no matter what it is I need pre or post production-wise. At the end of the day, I call GTM when I just really don't want to stress. I sleep very well at night knowing GTM Pictures is in my corner.
Graham T Mason was the director of photography for a shoot I did in 2010. Not only is he professional and extremely easy going, but he really has an artistic eye. He has a way of communicating which enhances the director’s vision. When I put a team together, this guy is on top of my list!
