Pet Photographers' Project to Help Local Charities

Calling the dogs from Broome to Cairns for Tails of the World™ Project 

Esteemed Australian phodographer and dog travel adventurer Kerry Martin of Puppy Tales has joined paws and cameras with Tails of the World, a collective of professional pet photographers united in a mission to celebrate the dogs of their region and make a difference for animals in need with photographic coffee table books.

From June to August 2024, all the adored pooches from Broome (WA), Darwin (NT), Atherton Tablelands (QLD) to Cairns (QLD) have the op-paw-tunity to be a part of this global movement and help to raise funds for Vets Beyond Borders and AMRRIC (Animal Management in Rural and Remote Indigenous Communities).

“For the third year it’s a thrill and honour to be a part of the Tails of the World collective and selected as a contributing photographer to the international book project,” said Kerry, who has been in the business for nearly 15 years.

Winner of national and international awards, Kerry is a Master Photographer in Australia and internationally and the inaugural winner of the Australian Pet/Animal Photographer of the Year.

To date, the annual books have raised more than US$95,000 for animal charities worldwide and featured more than 1,150 dogs from across the globe! Funds are raised through donations of the photo session fees and book sales.

Sessions will be photographed by Kerry throughout the beautiful areas of western Australia’s Kimberley region and northern Australia and featured in the official Tails of the World Volume 3.

“I’m su-paw excited to be using my photography to make a difference to animals in need. I also adore that I get to showcase some of the most beautiful areas in Australia with the dogs I photograph for the project,” said Kerry.

“I have chosen to support VBB and AMRRIC because they provide notable services to animals in the areas that I'll be covering with the project. It’s important to me to support local for a project that is locally based.

“I've also partnered with VBB following the 2020 bushfires with our Puppy Tales fundraising calendar and know of the incredible work that they do through this.”

Puppy Tales Travel Schedule 2024

Session spots are strictly limited. Participation cost starts from $100. The participation fee and 5% of photography wall art sales from the sessions will be donated to Vets Beyond Borders and AMRRIC.
