Hey! As a novice in modelling, I went to a shoot with Malibu Studios in London. They stated in the email this is a free assessment and indeed, I haven’t been asked to pay anything. About 1 hour after the shoot, we’ve met with an advisor and she asked about my interests and presented me with 2 agencies that would be interested to shoot the first shot with me (another agency rejected me she said). All sounds good so far. However, after that, she presented me with 3 packages they offer (£300/£600/£1k) and asked which one I’d choose for them to represent me, send me the pictures, and create the website for me. Is this a legitimate business practice? How do you go about starting freelance modelling?

Unfortunately, this sounds very similar to a scam that has been doing the rounds the past two years: https://www.theguardian.com/money/20...dio-collective

I would personally go to Storm Management's website, as they have a good and clear section about avoiding scam artists and how to start applying professionally.
