presented by Ken Buck, cinematographer.

Thursday October 25, 7. 30 p.m.
Chelsea Elementary School, Multipurpose room,

Ken Buck was Bill Mason’s cinematographer for Path of the Paddle, Song
of the Paddle and Waterwalker. Ken has lived in Chelsea since 1969. He
will be showing Bill Mason’s slide show Timeless Wilderness which Mason
shot over a period of 10 years in the 1950’s. The original music was
composed and played by Blake James. He will talk about using Mason’s
techniques to shoot better pictures in Gatineau Park.

Ken Buck notes: “In the winter of 1967 I was invited to see a slide show
in a little log cabin on Meech Lake. Bill Mason was showing his slide
show called Timeless Wilderness. The images were beautiful. Little did I
know that I was destined to work with this wilderness photographer for
over ten years. My wife Susan and I moved to Meech Lake in 1969. Our
neighbours, the Mason¹s , were shooting a film about wolves in their
backyard and I helped do many of the chores just because this man an his
wolf project were so interesting. In 1970 he asked me to shoot a pilot
film for a canoe project that he was trying to sell to the National film
Board of Canada. We shot it that summer and I never stopped working for
him for almost ten years. He introduced me to the world of
photography.”.

The Friends of Gatineau Park is a non-profit organization that works
