Models, please be well aware of this huge scam of high street photographic studios who are nothing else then ripping people off.

There is pure space, neptune studios, the london school of modeling, the blue room, model advice, studio 3, city studio, uk models, startup models, form models, luxemodels and so many many more.

They hire student photographers and make you believe you are dealing with professionals, they present you with prices between 1500- 3500 for useless, tasteless portfolios.

You cannot pay such an amount, but don't worry because if you pay today, they will reduce the price from around 70% and it's not a big loss, because by next week you'll get the next Boots campaign job.

Sometimes they even hire freelance failed celebrities to spend the day at their studio to impress you, and make it more believable. 

You can have your photographs taken, but make sure you are going to see a private genuine real qualified photographer, a one to one session.

London School of Modelling is not a rip off.

AUTHOR: John Bursain - (United Kingdom)

I work at the London School of Modelling, and I would like to respond to the post on this website.

The London School of modelling is NOT a rip off.  It offers fun, thrilling and informative model boot camps where students come for 1 or 2 days to learn the ropes about the modelling industry. No one is ever promised work, everyone is made aware of the pitfalls and competitive nature of the modelling world and no one is obliged to purchase a photographic portfolio ever.  

Furthermore the photographs taken at the London School of Modelling are all taken by fully qualified, experienced photographers who have all worked as freelance photographers in fashion and media.

No photographers who work at LSM are "student photographers".  All photographers hired by LSM have to undergo trail days and have to have a portfolio of past work in order for the management to even consider offering them work.   The LSM management go to extreme lenghts to ensure that the photographs taken of the students are of a very high standard.  They do this by hiring only the very best experienced photographers, makeup artists, model coaches and stylists who know what they are doing.  The studio is designed so that it offers varied and exciting background sets, both inside and outside, to give the photographs a magazine look and style. They do not just shoot against a white wall, they have built interesting and unual studio sets to create beautiful photograhs.   Many models have used these photographs to secure modelling work with high street brands and have been accepted by agencies. 

Every single model who attends LSM gets a one to one session with our photograhers.  Everyone gets at least 4 different shoots with professional makeup, hair styling, fashion styling and model coaching to suit the individuals needs. 

Once again, no one is EVER guaranteed modelling work and no one is obliged to purchase photographs. There is absolutely no obligation whatsoever.

Clients are offered packages at various levels to suit any budget and if they choose not to purchase photographs then that is fine, they can leave having enjoyed a thrilling and exciting day in a stunning studio enviroment. 

Here are some recent Testimonials from past clients who have enjoyed our model boot camps. We have not written these ourselves, they are genuine testimonials. We are not allowed to post email addresses from the authors. 

Dear LSM

 Thank you all for such an amazing day, i have learnt so much and i will keep this experience with me for the rest of my life, Thanks so much for the opportunity. It was great meeting you all and working with you, you all work so hard!! x

Hi Debbie & Charlotte,

Just checking in.  I'm back at work (school) now after a busy summer of modelling!  After the boot camp weekend, I've had a few jobs modelling for photographers, and I've been on a video shoot for Xtra-factor!  Boot camp just gave me loads more confidence to go out there and try my best, and to take opportunities that come my way - I feel I could walk in to any shoot now and have the confidence to 'pull it off'!!!    Thank you so much to you and your team, its given me the confidence boost I wanted - I enjoy modelling even more now.

I'm on starnow, modelmayhem and facebook, after taking your advise, and this is helping me secure some jobs; im looking forward to securing more professional jobs now...

Thanks again,
Grainne xx


I had such a fantastic time at London School of Modelling. It was such a great experience and all the staff are so lovely. I really learnt a lot and I feel much more confident in pursuing a modelling career. It was absolutely fabulous, the photos turned out amazing and I'm so glad I went.  Nadine Blowers.


Dear Charlotte and LSM,

I would like to thank you and the rest of the school for the input and effort that you gave us on the bootcamp. I had a thoroughly enjoyable time and for 2 days learnt a whole lot of valuable information about the industry. It was intense but that is what is needed in preparation for this line of work. All the tips and hands on experience was second to none and I left the school feeling more direct about the next steps to take in my career. I felt comfortable to ask anyone questions and learnt what works better for me. All in all a definite bonus to have the LSM behind me now and the reassurement of your support, keep it going your an inspiration to any model starting out!

 Kind regards,
Sophie Anderson


Dear Becki,

I can't tell you how much Megan enjoyed herself, and the day gave her a much needed confidence boost, as she has a a hard time of it recently.

You and the whole team have made Megan happier than I have seen her in ages with all that you did for her on the day, and thanks again for sending the pictures.

Have a lovely Christmas and New Year.

Catherine Smith
