In order to do well in the modelling industry, it helps to have the assistance of a modelling agency. However, there are unfortunately, scammers and con artists who know they can easily lure wannabe models into handing over hundreds of pounds in the false attempt to “make you a star.” You can protect yourself by knowing how to detect the real and legit modelling agencies from the fakes. Learn how to spot the telltale signs by using basic tactics, such as researching the company online, visiting their offices, finding out their clients and asking to see examples of work. You should never pay a signing on fee (good agencies don’t need this as they are confident of getting you work). When meeting with the agency, be wary if they start to push you into paying for services such as classes and photo shoots.
