Is UR MODELS a Scam? What is UR Models really about? Is UR Models an agency?
Is UR Models a Scam?
NO ITs a is a modelling conglomerate
which started back in 2009. Even though they state they are a platform which enables aspiring models to reach model success there are still many blogs & chat rooms they have mixed reviews, some saying they are a great help for breaking into the industry while others say they had a wasted journey meeting with me and found them no help.
They are the UK’s first five star modelling platform and yes it looks like some of the people they work with have gone away and done very well. when I spoke to someone there about my child going with them they were very clear that if they worked with us it could go either way.
i had read some mixed reviews about them, so when I approached them I obviously mentioned these as it was something that was playing on mind but it seemed they already knew these bad reviews were there and believe it was their competition that put them there, like other modelling advice sites and modelling agencies.
they first of all advised us about portfolios and how important they are, they also said they the portfolio will need to be added to as progression happens within the modelling career.
You can see some very clear details on Google from an experienced UR Model booker, Liam. Although there is no way of knowing if Liam is the real deal and genuine the information given is exactly how modelling agencies are meant to work are absolutely true, so I don’t see any reason not to believe this.
A few quotes from the post are below:
“UR Models is not an Modelling agency”, This was something I was concerned about but after talking with them they soon explained they are modelling platform, a source of advice and will help people get signed to agencies ‘this is how they make
The deposit is to make sure you turn up, a commitment from you for their time and service – this I was told and when we bought a portfolio they allowed us to have the deposit paid taken off cost, this is fair and many other companies similar do not do this
Some studios con aspiring models by inviting them for a ‘free’ photoshoot, requesting a booking fee to secure the studio time – with a promise to refund the fee if you attend and UR Models did that for me and child so this makes me think Liam was right in what he said. UR Models Models are not a con they help hopefuls break into the industry
the only thing that makes me think they are not a scam is the fact that I have since got my child signed to three agencies with the portfolio we got from UR Models and have already been offered some paid work, without their help i don’t think we would be where are now
so to confirm theyy are not an agency that find the jobs but they do as they say they would and you cannot ask for more than that and yes i paid for a portfolio which ended up being a lot cheaper that pictures i have had taken of the kids at Venture photography in the past
so my conclusion is i dont think its one of these modelling scams
Is UR Models a Scam? the said they would help get us a portfolio created and that they did
- they said they would be upfront with me and i have no reason to believe they were not, the proof is in the pudding
- they said they would help us with getting signed to an agency without charing me and they did just that
My conclusion is if you want to start modelling give them a try, i did and I am chuffed with the out come
