About Mark Donaldson

My name is Mark Donaldson. I am a professional photographer with over thirty years experience in the industry, specializing in sport, architectural, travel, studio & all commercial advertising.

I studied photography in Sydney for two years and worked for six years as an assistant for one of Australia’s most prominent advertising photographers of that era Originally growing up in the surf on the northern beaches of Sydney (Manly Beach) Australia, I am now based in the beauty of the mountains of Hakuba Nagano Japan.

I have been coming to Japan since 2003 and have been a resident in Hakuba since 2011. I fell in love instantly with Japan on my first visit, the culture, people, the landscape, the mountains, the…well pretty much everything!!!!!

I still work within the commercial photographic world both in Japan, Australia and elsewhere around the globe on a regular basis, though I’m predominantly here in Hakuba.


"I am fortunate in my profession as a photographer that my career has taken me all over the world. I have been exposed to many amazing and beautiful locations, but in saying that I am totally spell bound by the sheer natural beauty of this location, Hakuba being the centerpiece and the jewel of the Japanese Alps, we are blessed by the magnificent mountains, snow and both resort and back country riding."Mark Donaldson, Australia/Japan
