I am a former model who has worked in Melbourne Sydney, Italy for some of the leading agencies in Australia.
I have been in the business for over 20 years and have appeared on many television commercials and have done many shows for Myer, David Jones etc
Some months ago my 18 year old daughter came home and gave me a card that was handed to her by a man in the street with Paul Roberts Internaional Agency, well they picked the wrong girl this time!! He told her she could be a model. My daughter is under 5ft 7inches and could not possibly be a model.
I phoned this company and started to ask them questions about why they would be approaching my daughter when as a former professional model I know for a fact she would not get any work.
When I told them my background they became very embarrassed and defensive and hung up on me in the end.
STAY AWAY FROM THEM! Nobody with any credibility in the business would touch them.
I am a mother who cares about my children and other peoples children and knows the business inside out. Read their fine print where they say they wont guarantee you any work. A legitimate working modelling agency will never ask you to spend thousands on photos before they sign you up, they will merely ask for a digital photo. They can tell from that if you will work or not.
Please be warned!
