Same amazedmodels have contacted be useful to know what they did? Alll i know amazedmodels is also called booking management
What finally happened?,because I have to sign a contract with them and don't know if I should
Hello. What kind of contract they're want you to sign? They 're charge you huge amount for pictures to your portfolio and they're shouldn't as the law. Check agency profile. Google it check address it's not even well known agency
Hi this is definitely a scam Model management invited my children 6 and 9 to a test shoot. A company called Panoramic studio Ltd who manage a low grade studio in a run down part of Camden Town then tried to sell me the images for £600 and advised I had passed the test shoot and would recommend me to TNMC another bogus company who claim to set up a website profile for you and manage your portfolio. They charge £100 subscription fee.
The worse thing about this scenario is they lied to my kids who now think they have been chosen by a reputable agency.
When I researched these company they are All scams to collect money from people with false claims and promises of promoting you with model agencies
I have reported them to ACTION FRAUD please do the same so we can close them down.
To summarise NO REPUTABLE MODEL AGENCY WILL ASK YOU TO PAY FOR A PORTFOLIO ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS SEND IN A BODY AND HEADSHOT. If they sign you up and you get work you can then develop a portfolio yourself via a reputable photographer.
ALso a good website to promote yourself and find work is STARNOW

Hi Eveyone I also received an email and text from FUSION MANAGEMENT .......... connected to the other scam companies asking me to sign up so be careful of follow on emails
There's lot of companies names related with them. And completely different company charge you for images to your portfolio. I did a research about that company and I found out who's the owner and that the company names and addresses changed few times in previous year. So I think that's how they cheating the law.
Hi, I signed my son up with booking management on Friday and now worried I have made a huge mistake ! They have said we have also been accepted by TMMC. I don't know what I should now do as I have paid them money ! Can anyone help who has already gone through this.
How much did u pay them? There is not much to do. These are now what they doing. I called to citizen advice theyre send me a sample of misunderstanding act 1967 and I've sended that to them. Didn't received any reply. TMMC agency is a crap it's not even on the list of model agencies in Manchester or London. It's appear on Google as Ad. If you're sign up with them they will charge u another amount for place on their website. I found the girl who signed up with them. According to the law they shouldn't charge your for images and if they do you should to have 30days cooling off period

Hi! I had a photo shoot in Leeds and they told me the same things but I was charged £400. I told them I can't pay it so they asked for £50 deposit. When I got the emails from the other studios they wanted to charge me aswell. Now my final payment is due and I don't know what to do?
