Model Spotting

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I know it hasn't happened to any of you 'cause you're all ugly bastards, but you might know someone it's happened to and if so I need your help!

Anyone know like, anything about it? Is there's any point following it up? What's the likely-hood of it actually panning out? Etc, etc :/

    I got stopped once in London, then another time in Nottingham cos they wanted me to model for some tattoo/piercing place, hahah! I don't even have any mad piercings or tattoos! What a joke.

    A pal of mine got randomly offered some modelling jobs & she's done a few shoots now [more to come] & has made a bit of dosh out of it. You've got nothing to lose, so why not?

    Just heard some dodgy stories about people being 'spotted' and being asked to pay a £200 odd registration fee and hearing nothing back. I know this one's legit though 'cause they were in a middle of a shoot when it happened. It's a long story :/

    We've all heard those stories. But hopefully you're not stupid enough to hand over £200! I doubt you're supposed to be giving them any money anyway. If you know it's legit then go for it, I think it would be fun to do as well.

    When you go and have a chat with the agency as soon as they start mentioning u paying any type of fee forget it, even if they say its to pay for your portfolio. Any decent modelling agency would pay for all that for you!

    Many famous people were spotted going about their normal Business and suddenly thrust into the limelight, Pamela Anderson at a sports match, Kate Moss on a plane, Claudi Schieffer at a nightclub.

    Depends who you got spotted by. One of my mates got spotted at the big Topshop in London and not much came of it, just some photo shoots for girly magazines like J17, Bliss and Sugar.

    Another one got spotted by quite a famous agency in Covent Garden and she's doing brilliantly. She's made buckets of money out of it and got to do some stuff for Calvin Klein.

    Even if you get signed up though, it doesn't guarantee you any work. They'll have to make you a portfolio and all that shit and try to sell you to companies/magazines or whatever.

    Good luck if it's what you wanna do.
