Frequently Asked Questions - What Are Your Worries And Concerns

Hi Guys

After talking to our consultants who answer your calls we have decided to create a post about questions that bother you the most – this way maybe we will clear up some things for you.

Why do I need a portfolio?

Lots of you ask us why do you need a portfolio. A set of professional photos showing different aspects of your face and body is like a resume which you need to apply for a job. Having a portfolio you can send it not only to apply for model agencies but also to any other modelling job that different companies and venues are posting about. You can easily find on web ads for models where they require you to send your images. If you wish to be a model and do not have good photos, having a portfolio is a good point to start.

Why do I have to give deposit?

When inviting you to attend a test photo shoot we ask you for a deposit. We need it to make sure you will attend the photo shoot day as we will book a make up artists and photographers for you. If you come and you are not happy with the photo shoot you will get the deposit back. So you really don't have to worry about that. We just need it to do the bookings of our staff.

Why I cannot attend the test photo shoot by myself?

Some of you would like to attend the photo shoot by yourself and we advise not to. It is better to come with someone so you can get some advice, watch the photos together and make the decisions together. Sometimes you can see yourself slightly different than other people and having someone with you helps you to be sure about your look.

How much will I be paid for modelling?

This is the question everyone would like to know at the beginning of their career.
Unfortunately we do not know the answer for that. We will help you to get in touch with modelling agencies and on our page we post some job offers you can apply to. We also give you tips and advice how to look for modelling job. We hope that providing you with the best portfolio and webfolio will help you get into modelling. At least you have something to start with. You can apply for various kinds of modelling jobs with the portfolio we have prepared for you.


  1. I was hesitant about giving my details over the phone but I just want to say that I got am email straight away and a receipt was posted to me. When I got there I didn't pass the test shoot as I had the flu and the team didn't think that my images were strong enough and I got a refund back straight away. I've booked in again, so hopefully I pass this time!
