Lots of girls and boys want to get into modelling. Many are being exploited by unscrupulous people posing as bogus model agents. On the false promise of a successful modelling career, girls as young as 15 are spending up to £500 on portfolios of pictures that are useless.
Superior offers experienced, professional and caring advice on the correct procedures for getting into modelling, and we can also advise about the possible dangers:
First – be vigilant on the internet.
Beware of people posing as agents in chat rooms, instant messenger programmes (such as MSN Messenger) or on social networking sites. In the past, unscrupulous people have set up profiles on Facebook and other social networks posing as scouts from agencies.
Second – never agree to meet anyone unless it is at Superior's Glasgow office (Suite 169, floor 2, Central Chambers 93, Hope Street, Glasgow, G2 6LD)
Always visit with an accompanying parent, guardian or trusted adult. If you can’t come to Glasgow then send snap shots through our website, or by post (see the Wannabe section to be a Superior Model).
Third – contact us direct
We do NOT work with any third parties (whether they are photographers or agents), who may claim to work on our behalf to create portfolios for your benefit, as an introduction to Superior.
Fourth – do not pay for any pictures
Do not believe anyone who tells you that you need a professional portfolio to be considered by an agency. Natural shots without make-up are the best guides for us to decide your potential with our agency.
Many people have thrown away hundreds of pounds having useless pictures taken because of false promises.
If you are suspicious of anyone who contacts you, get as many details as you can from them, and then contact our office on 0141 258 4667
