He was a founder member of the Staithes Art Club whose members are known today as the Staithes group of artists, or the Northern Impressionists. Mason began his career as a marine engineer for steam powered ships at the naval school ship HMS Conway. However, he also studied at Scarborough School of Art and around 1898 decided to take up art full-time. During the First World War, he was appointed shipping war artist in command of a motor launch in the North Sea and Egypt.
