Kate Pokrovskaya is a model from Russia living in Northern NSW. Kate was featured in my most recent Lemon Shoot for the injection collection of jewels "Pretty Tough". As well as being a bad arse freelance model Kate has a massive passion for Animals and is a Snake Rescuer. She volunteers for WIRES in Animal Rescue and hopes to run her own shelter one day. Kate and I chatted about her career and her life in general! She's such a genuine person and her kindness just oozes from her. It was such a pleasure to work with, and shoot Kate!!
