Meet Photographer Cate Vail Teaming Up With AquaTails. Mermaid Cate from Nevada has been with us from the beginning, photographing our tails for two years now. She loves our tails, our business, and being a part of our team. She has lots of experience under her belt, including photographing for an episode of “America’s Next Top Model”. Many of the photos you see on our site are from Cate, where she’s shot photos around Lake Tahoe, in Nevada. That is her in the first photo!
