legit modelling agencies don't do that, they don't ask you for money
they're just charging you for pictures basically

Well I got my pictures done and they are asking for money from another place and they sent it to loads of agencies and I've had choice model management call and say I need to pay for the pictures and also I need to pay an upfront refundable deposit that I get back after my first job to show that I am serious about them and won't let them down

There’s loads of threads about scam agencies on TSR. Here’s a long one so you get the gist of how they operate:

they should be getting you work, not charging you
they're a scam. just think about it logically. if they are so sure they can get you work why would they ask you for an 'upfront refundable deposit that you get back after your first job?' it makes 0 sense, lol

I’m not so sure it is a scam as most agencies don’t offer the refundable deposit with first shoot I’m so confused

They all offer a ‘refund’. It’s a meaningless draw to make you feel like there’s no risk. Please read the thread linked in post #5 above.

Actual modelling agencies don't ask you to pay them for anything. They only pay you for the work that they get you!!!!!!!!!

Exactly. That’s why so many of these places brand themselves as “photography studios” rather than agencies.

Nah, but they keep calling me rather than an email like at first. One thing though, I asked what was the likelihood of me getting a job to receive the £70 deposit back the guy made it clear he can’t promise I’ll get a job. Like yes I know it’ll be hard, but if they’re not confident in me to begin with.. after I’ve sent them photos then how do I know they’re gonna 💯 manage me.
They could ‘act’ when rlly n truly i could be wasting my time n money.
But that’s my take. Lolll
