Kristina Zoe is a beautiful model from Siberia. I hope you’ll enjoy the interview;
How did you fall in love with modeling?
I went to arts school since I was 3 and I needed an artistic outlet and I found it in modeling
How were you discovered?
Not like Giselle in a McDonald’s for sure 😉 I was 14 and i just started promoting myself online and applying to agencies.
What’s one of the most interesting shoots that you’ve done?
In so many years I’ve done a lot: I cold snow and ice, high up on mountains at 4am, in the desert, under water and in crowded hot asian streets just to name a few
How would you define your personal style?
Honestly there is no such thing for me, I change like a chameleon to keep up with fashion, I’m a walking contradiction depending on my project and mood.
Where did you grow up? How have your roots influenced your sense of style?
In Siberia, far away in Asia. Not really, I’ve always been very artistic and had my own view. But I love folklore in editorial shoots, though.
Who is your style icon and why?
All great artists that walked this earth, I could never choose one. But as a role model probably Tyra because she managed to change the uptight standards of beauty in this industry.
Who is your favorite photographer and why?
I love Mario Testino, Mert and Marcus and of course Peter Lindbergh
What advice would you give to aspiring models out there?
Don’t ever listen to those agencies that tell you, you’re not enough this and that (fill in the blank) – they were developed for a world that doesn’t exist anymore. Be yourself and show personality and promote yourself online and let the crowd decide.
Do you edit your own photos? If yes, which programs do you use?
I am a model turned fashion photographer and I do use Photoshop, Lightroom and all Adobe programs.
