I was lucky to have Tom as my guide and fellow photographer for this half day visit. Actually he was my teacher and from him I gained lots of useful tips. His expertise of the area was great so we could visit some beautiful locations by van. No skiing was required today so people with no skiing skills, like me, could still enjoy the snow access this fantastic day. I liked the casual and easy going way the guide had and nothing was a problem, borrowing a lens, stopping for snack, it was all up to me. You will need some good shoes and a coat and of course your camera, but otherwise if you need snow shoes, a lens or a tripod, it will there for you to use. It would have been nice to have a bit more time but the train journey and timetables for the trip back to Sapporo meant the time went too fast! Overall I highly recommend this experience if you like snow and photography.

If you’re on the fence about booking a cat skiing trip in Niseko, do it!! And book with Niseko Photography and Guiding. You won’t regret it. My group spent a day cat skiing with two NP&G guides and are still reliving how much fun we had. The guides picked us up from our hotel in Hirafu and drove us out to a private mountain, where we had a beacon and cat safety lesson and then hopped in. It was snowing ridiculously hard (yay!), and the cat driver just plowed through it and thoroughly entertained us. Once on the mountain, we did a warm up run and then hit some fun terrain. The runs featured various lines, so whether we wanted trees, pillows, or a bit of open space, we could find it. The guides did a fantastic job of listening to our feedback and tailoring each successive route appropriately. And we were especially happy to have two guides, as one guide was able to document our adventure, while the second stayed back to make sure we had someone to clean up yard sales (which definitely happened). A few days after the outing, we received a link with photos and got to relive the day all over again (the photos are worth the price alone) and make all our friends jealous. I highly recommend this company and can’t wait for my next Niseko visit so I can book them again.

I have had a number of guided back country, resort and cat ski tours with Niseko Photography in the last few years and always found them to be exceptional experiences. They know how to get you into the deep powder and provide professional photos to enhance your experience. This time, with my non skiing partner, we booked a day trip down through the mountains to the coast at Otaru, taking in sight seeing, the old town, delicious sushi lunch, and whisky tasting at the Yoichi distillery. Our guide Charlotte was entertaining, informative, and made the day real fun for us. Watching seals in the sea just off the coast was a joy. A great rest day in the middle of a ski trip, and very satisfying for both of us.

Everything so good except the weather. We were not lucky to see the all mt Yotei as our wish and main purpose for the tour but the tour guide and photographer Charlotte did so well. Always smile and patience with my kid, and play with her too (pic). Only crazy raining day made the imperfect trips but we can visit the lAke Toya indeed. You can go everywhere u want. Small thing is the service should let the mobile phone number on the website for convenient contact. Only home phone, its hard to contact for urgent case.

This is our second time using Niseko Photography and the second time we've had a wonderful guide and day of skiing. We had the most phenomenal day with Zach, our guide. My husband, son and I along with Zach went to Rusutsu for the day. Zach was incredibly knowledgeable about where to take us on mountain for the freshest untouched powder, he was also an incredible skier and helped us navigate through snowy, windy deep powder. He took lots of photos of our family and we are looking forward to seeing them -they were incredible the last time we used Niseko Photography. Thanks to Zach we had a wonderful day!!
