Meet The Team

Darren Teasdale


Darren Teasdale

Darren is the Senior Photographer at Niseko Photography and Guiding with over 7 years experience working as a guide in Japan and 16 years as a professional photographer worldwide. He knows all the best places and how to capture those epic moments you only ever see on the cover of magazines or in the movies. If he’s not shooting with pro teams or guiding clients you will find him searching new zones in the backcountry with a camera in his hands and a smile on his face.






Elsie Nielsen

Elsie started off skiing at a young age, but switched to snowboarding 7 years ago when she first came to Niseko, the place she now calls home. With a background in social marketing, consulting and management, Elsie has turned her hand to photography and design in the last few years and loves nothing more than getting out in the mountains to ride hard and continually develop her skill set. Elsie has an ever growing list of happy clients and her skill with design is only matched by her talent on a snowboard.



We will be launching a new website soon and it will have our full team profiled on it so check back later to meet the crew.
