In 2022, I participated in a remarkable global alliance of professional pet photographers that raised an amazing US$25,000 for animal rescue initiatives by crafting the inspiring Tails of the World:  The Book.

This year, we're dreaming even BIGGER!!

With our collective of visionary photographers doubling in size, we're ambitiously pursuing the goal of raising US$35,000 for charity. But here's the catch:  we need you and your furbaby to join our tribe!

How would you like to see your cherished furkid featured in the pages of Tails of the World:  Volume Two, knowing your contribution is making a real difference for pets in need?

Don't wait!! - Scroll down to uncover more details and apply today!  Let's join forces to make an even greater impact for animals everywhere.


I'm thrilled to announce that Chile Dog Photography has been selected as the official photographer for the 2023 Tails of the World: Utah photoshoots.  I invite you to seize this opportunity to showcase the distinct charm of our beautiful state through limited-edition photoshoots, set in our iconic Bonneville Salt Flats.

Each session not only immortalizes the essence of your dog and Utah, but also supports a worthy cause.  Every penny from the session fees is donated directly to Nuzzles & Co., while the proceeds from the book sales benefit Second Chance Animal Rescue, Inc.  Plus, one stunning photo from each session is guaranteed to grace the pages of our Tails of the World: Location book.

This creative collaboration extends beyond philanthropy – as a participant, you'll have the chance to view and acquire keepsake photographic artwork from your unique canine photoshoot.

Act today, as I am only able to accommodate
10 sessions.

Submit your application today and make a lasting impact on both your community and the lives of animals in need.

About the Charities

100% of the session fees from the Tails of the World: Utah photo sessions are donated to Nuzzles & Co. Pet Rescue and Adoption. Nuzzles & Co. is a passionate and dedicated private, non-profit 501(c)(3) no-kill organization situated in beautiful Summit County, Utah.

Back in 1990, a group of compassionate volunteers came together under the name Friends of Animals Utah with a shared mission: finding loving homes for animals in need.  Since their humble beginnings, they've successfully placed over 25,000 adorable pets into forever homes.

All book sale proceeds are donated to Second Chance Animal Rescue. This Australian based not-for-profit organisation has a network of hundreds of foster carers and volunteers. Over the years, they have rescued and rehabilitated well over 10,000 pets due to be euthanised at pounds and shelters. Their mission is to offer these animals a Second Chance at finding their forever homes.
