About Me


Hi, thanks for taking the time to browse around my site, I hope you liked it.

My name is David Mason, I have been involved with fireworks since I put on my first firework display way back in 1986 (half a lifetime ago)

Since then I became involved with a local display company here in England - Supreme Fireworks - and have lost count of how many displays I have been involved with in one way or another. Up until couple of years ago when I bought a digital camera I had never really thought much about photographing fireworks. There was a local show that I wasn't firing so I took along my camera and had a go. The results weren't bad, but I needed a lot more practice, and a better camera. I now have an Olympus c2100 which has the versatility of an SLR and the "I'll take it anyway, I can always delete it later" of a digital camera. It's still not perfect - but I am getting better with more practice.

This photo was taken a few weeks before our wedding & shows me with the 12" finale shell from our wedding display.
(Well, you can't be involved with fireworks for that long & not have a display for your wedding - can you?)

Our honeymoon.
We ended our honeymoon in Tacoma (Nr Seattle) over the 4th of July holiday as guests of Larry Mattingly & somehow ended up helping with the setup of a large barge display.
(I still don't know how I got away with it.)
Me, my wife - Shelley, & a 16" shell

Some more of the barge setup.

I'm sure Shelley is in there somewhere amongst the mortars.
