About

My name is Mason Hendricks.  Norsk Hest is a nickname that was given to me some years ago and it is the name I have come to go by.  It is Norwegian for "Norse Horse," and is the embodiment of the life I try to live, too be strong, free, out of the ordinary and to not be confined by societal norms.  In my work I try to capture all beauty, even when some may think there is none... there is.  Where there is life, there is beauty, and when I am present I will replicate that moment with my photography as best I can.

Landscapes are what I started capturing first, I was fortunate enough to be traveling all the time when I started this vocation which allowed my love of landscapes to become my studies.  I photograph all types of events but my favorite is action sports and lifestyle photography.

In the summer of 2016 I filmed and co-produced "A Gray State", an Erik Nelson film. Erik Nelson is an award winning Director and Producer, he has done films like; Grizzly Man and Into the Abyss with Werner Hertzog who is the Excutive Producer on "A Gray State" which is set to debut at the TriBeCa Film Festival This spring.

“There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious—makes you so sick at heart—that you can't take part. You can't even passively take part. And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all.”

Journalism and Activism

We live in an ever changing and volatile world, political activism is a love of mine and something I care deeply about.  Since I was 16 I been inundated with activism and capturing it to tell the stories of human struggles. In 2010 I became with a local film maker and we and many others worked on a project called "Gray State" which was a film project that was based on real events but was presented as fiction in a near dis-utopian future. In addition to this I filmed, edited and was an associate producer on a film called "Gray State: The Rise" which was a documentary that was used to feed interest into the narrative project " Gray State".  The fictional narrative film never happened but it led to many hours of study of film production and interviews with many political figures that are very prevalent in today's world and lots of great content for the documentary "The Rise"
