To the newcomer, the modelling world can appear daunting. Having been active in the modelling business for almost two decades, connecting models to business and helping new talent promote themselves, Talent Management has seen other modelling companies come and go.
Recently though, we’ve seen a rise in online modelling companies claiming to provide an array of ‘essential modelling services’ without actually finding models work.
With catchy tag lines and engaging websites, aspirant models are easily drawn in without realising that all they’re buying into is a ‘showcase’ opportunity, advice, or flashy photo shoots, followed by expensive photographs.
While some businesses make it perfectly clear they’re not an agency, others conceal the truth in their small print. Many are surprised to find out just how many modelling companies are not modelling employment agencies.
Two popular non-agency companies are Star Now and UK Models. UK Models, for example, admits: “We do not find models work, we provide all the services you need to establish which type of modelling best suits you and what type of agency would be the most appropriate.”
So remember, when approaching a so-called modelling ‘agency’, ask the question: ‘Are you a modelling employment agency?’
Talent Management differs from the majority of modelling companies out there. We are a Government regulated employment agency, inspected often, with legal responsibilities to protect your best interests. We actively find our models work and receive enquiries every day from clients looking to find models.
