    Hey Guys, I was just writing about a recent experience I had with visual studios... I applied to be a model, I was shortlisted and invited for photoshoot. Its was £50 deposit but as they say they cover the cost of photoshoot I didn't mind paying as refundable. The day was about 4 hours I had hair, make-up and fashion guide. Really nice staff made me feel good about myself. I was surprised when they told me I was successful as I felt a little bit anxious as I'm not 100% confident like I used to be but I was over the moon! I was offered a portfolio for really cheap £299 and I could pay on interest free finance !!! (My last model portfolio 6 years ago cost my mum £1500 for a very similar package with a different comampy when I was younger nothing come of it as I was at school and didn't want to carry on as I had GCSE'S)
    I have now paid for my portfolio and heard from 7 different agencies who work along side of visual studios asking to take me on looking for paid work.... Im so excited I have just been put forward for a TV advert and a fashion magazine... Eeekkk. Will update if I get paid work

    Hey are you still having a good experience with them and what agencies contacted you? I’ve recently just signed up with visual studios and I’ve seen comments on them being a scam so thought I’d ask you? x

    I’m in exactly the same boat as you. I’ve just signed up through the model factory and I’m really nervous about it being a scam. Have you got an update on anything please

    I’ve now been to London to meet an agency face to face (how your meant to do it as over the phone is not professional and more of a scam) and I signed to the agency just at the weekend and I’ll you know more soon on if it’s worth it but so far I’m happy
