Photo Organic is a business created to encourage and develop photography skills and techniques in people who are camera enthusiasts, photography hobbyists and budding professional photographers, by making their lessons an adventure.

With a combination of photography workshops - from a half-day lesson to a three-week international safari - Photo Organic uses nature as its classroom and wildlife and people as its subjects.

Founder, Alistair MacDougall, has been fascinated with animals and nature since childhood and has spent his adult life as a professional commercial photographer, so it seemed only natural to create a business that combined the two in such a perfect way. 

When you take part in a photography lesson with Photo Organic, you'll take away many new skills and techniques, fantastic imagery all of your own, and a sense of confidence that you've taken your passion to another level. 



We have a range of regular workshops that cater to every level of photographer and cover the many aspects of taking beautiful images




Our safari photo trips are the experience of a lifetime. We work with some of the best local tour operators to create a unique and well thought-out itinerary to ensure some of the best locations for scenic, cultural and wildlife photography in the regions we visit.

The educational aspect of our trips is detailed and planned, so you won't miss out on anything, and yet seamlessly integrated. You'll come home feeling like you've had the most fabulous holiday and adventure but with a whole bag of new photography tricks and professional looking photographic journal to show for it.

You'll learn the importance of lighting, time of day, composition, vehicle position and predicting wildlife movements to be in the right spot at the right time. Our lessons will give you a new confidence using your camera and gear.

The accommodation, meals, travel permits and bookings are all taken care of, and all you need to worry about is the plane flight there, and then getting yourself ready to capture spectacular images. Think close-up encounters with gorillas, elephants, lions and chameleons in Africa; and birds, crocodiles, turtles, iguanas and bats (to name just a few) in Australia's Kakadu and Top End.
