    Hi all,
    Can someone tell if Front Modelling is a scam? And if anyone has come across then before, and you experience?

    Thank you!

    Hi my son sent them a photo and was invited to go to the Studio for photo shoot. I paid the 50 quid deposit which i was told would be refunded if we went to the shoot which we did. The photos were great and we were told that one modelling agency called Bella Talent had offered him a years contact. So i paid 700 for 50 photos. Then Bella wanted another 80 quid for the photos to go on their web site! Only just done all this so dont know if he will get any paid work out of it yet.So only do this if you have a spare 800 quid.

    Hey I am glad I have something on this company. I recently went to a shoot aswell and paid £50 deposit. The studio was all very loud and hard to understand what they were saying. Also handing out wine before trying to take £700 from you! I was also told that Bella models would be signing him for a years contract. Luckily after coming to my senses I didn’t hand over any money as I soon realised that it’s not right to hand over money without meeting with an agency. Also I have since been advised that a good agency will not charge you for photographs.

    Yes they did, when I then spoke to him again on the Monday (had the shoot on the Saturday) he said nothing was guaranteed. I found him very rude once he knew I wasn’t going to pay for the pictures. The pictures were amazing but I wasn’t going to hand over all that money with out doing a bit more digging.

    No as much as I wanted to I didn’t. I did really want the pictures, they were amazing but then there are of your child so you are going to think they are amazing. It’s annoying how people can get away with it. My guess a lot of people sign on the day. That’s a lot of money they are making. It’s realky not fair

    When you brought the pictures did they email them to you or are they all printed in a book?

    Yes i agree with you and wish now i hadnt done it! but the pics were amazing as you say. We got them on a cd nothing printed. Im hoping that he will get some work out of it but as yet cant see him on their website! Should of looked into it in more detail and been suspicious of the fact that though Front say they are a modelling agency. They are not!

    If you had to pay 1k then it’s a scam. No legit agency charges people for photos.
