    I think he sounds somewhat suspect... :-( Perhaps it would be a good idea to bring another person along, for your own safety if nothing else. If you are worried about looking stupid, just say you went shopping with them and is it OK if s/he sits and has coffee too. I don't think that'd make you like overly paranoid, but it's up to you.

    Good luck.

    its not like that. the guy is OLD. and he has met my family. and he is only using my FACE for modelling. i just thought it was weird to be so informal as he isnt getting paid. do model scouts get comission?

    I was scouted by storm last autumn, taken along to their headquarters, but decided the stress of runway wouldnt suit me at all..
    I'm 6' tall, quite striking, and the skinny end of normal, so i guess that had a lot to do with it.
    Ditto... last year I was scouted.. dunno if it was legit though, because I wasn't interested... I'm a bit of tomboy and not into fashion.. although at the time I was wearing skinny jeans and a strappy top rather than my usual skate stuff so he wasn't to know. I'm not quite as tall as you though, and wouldn't really call myself pretty.. I guess since I'm skinny, tall and have a Russian type of face with high cheekbones he thought I could model

    He may be old, in porn a lot of them are, and just because you can handle him doesn't mean you could handle half a dozen men if he brings them along. It may only be coffee, but what can come out of that other than a meeting in the future in a more private place?

    Mmm very suspicious that people should talk about being scouted in a modelling thread

    no its totally not porn. he said my height was ok i wont be doing anything other than hair and face. also i think starbucks would be wary of 20 old men and one girl. anyway. i've met lawyers to discuss work experience over lunch- maybe this is a business thing. anyway. im going to go and see what happens.

    everdawn- you seem to kow alot about modelling. would i get any work at 5ft 3 with a big agency like models 1?im thinking to bypass the guy and just send in my pic. i'm olive skinned with high cheeckbones, a bit like laila rouass type face but darker, and the hair is lighter and wavy and long .
