La Mode Agency London complaints

La Mode London complaints - Not a Model Agency

If you have been applied to La Mode London and been contacted by them to arrange a shoot be prepared to need very deep pockets. La Mode charge the highest price of any photo studio in London that we are aware of - the common amount for a photo shoot is £2750! Two thousand seven hundred and fifty pound - for photos that are not needed to apply for modelling!

La Mode have been taken to court by customers complaining about their service and the fabricated information they supplied prior to the shoot. The customer that made the complaint won the case against La Mode.

We have been asked by potential models for advice about La Mode London modelling agency. However La Mode based in London are not a modeling agency so we cannot give any reviews about them for getting you modelling work. They sell portfolio shoots, they do not book models for work.

La Mode london Modelling - where do they get their money from ?

La Mode London are a photography studio. Potential models can go to La Mode to pay for a photo shoot but that is it - you do not get work from a commercial photo studio that sells portfolio shoots and you do not need a portfolio to approach modelling agencies. La Mode make their money from selling photo shoots to people, they do not pay models for shoots or get them work as they are not a modelling agency. If you have been ripped off and unable to get a refund this BBC series may be able to help you

New ITV Show - Cook Me The Money

My name is Anabel and I work for ITV Studios on abrand new series called Cook Me The Money for ITV1 andI am currently recruiting couples and teams of two to take part.

It would be absolutely fantastic if you are able to forward on a copy of the advert attached to your distribution list and/or client list and put the word out there to friends, family, and colleagues as through word of mouth, you never know, someone you know might know someone who would like to apply.  It would be brilliant if you could also print a copy andput it up perhaps in your staff room, reception and any otherway you can think of such as a mention in your newsletter, putting something onyour website, in print, on Facebook or on the modelling agency Twitter for example.  And, ifyou have any ideas on how you think you might be able to help then please let me know as we are looking for couples in your area now.

The show is essentially a cook-off between three couples with a passion for cooking whowant to demonstrate their skills and in the process could win a cashprize.   Each couple will be given the opportunity to create the perfect food pitch and compete against the other two couples for the chance of winning a grand prize.  They’ll have to source the ingredients,pitch up and cook their chosen dish and desert to members of the public. The couple that sells the most wins.  They don’t need to be top-notch chefs but experience and a love for cooking and food wouldn’t go a miss.

Maybe even you and your partner or friend might be interested?  It can be mother and daughter, two friends, two colleagues, brother and sister, husband and wife, boyfriend and girlfriend - any couple is welcome to apply so long as neither are or have ever been a professional chef, cook, caterer or the modelling agency.

Form models - misleading claims again!

Form models are now running a twitter account that claims they are a model agency when as their website clearly states they are no such thing. Form models is the name used by Neptune studios in Waterloo to entice models into attending shoots where they are sold expensive portfolios that they do
not need to apply to real model agencies.

Hidden Camera TV Show

I was wondering if you were able to help me?

We're trying to find people between the ages of 18-30yr to take part in our hidden camera comedy show for E4. The idea behind the show is that you'd set up your boyfriend (or girlfriend) by introducing her/him to your family for the 1st time.

However the only catch is that it wouldn't be your real family but instead a bunch of actors! The family are quite quirky and a bit eccentric but the premise of the show is light-hearted and lots of fun and there's also an amazing prize up for grabs if they can stay the course. It is therefore important that your partner hasn't met your parents yet.

Can I ask you a few questions.

.           Are you currently in a relationship where your partner hasn't met your parents?

.           If so, how long have you two been together?

.           Has your partner met your parents yet or seen any photos of them?

.           Do you have any brothers or sisters or even step-siblings? Has your partner met them or know much about them?

It would be good to have a number for you so we can chat further. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

Emm Hobbs | Casting | 0207 202 2456 | @CastObjective

Should I have to pay deposit to a model agency?

Did i need to pay deposit for model agency? Should I pay a deposit for a modelling agency?

If you have paid a deposit to meet with a model agency then it is almost certainly not actually a model agency at all. Deposits are normally taken by portfolio shoot companies that may appear to be model agencies by their use of the words "selected", "successful" or "chosen" but in reality all you have been offered is an expensive portfolio shoot even if they don't make any mention of costs.

Advice from model agency Now Models - do not pay for a portfolio and do not pay a deposit!

A genuine modelling agency will not ask for a deposit just to assess if you are suitable for their books. If you fail to turn up then that is your loss not theirs. A fake model agency that is actually a photo studio will want a deposit to ensure you arrive as they have paid photographers and makeup artists for the shoot and want to get your money to pay their costs.

I am working on an exciting new property programme for a major TV channel. The show will transmit in a prime time slot.

We are currently looking for homeowners who would like the opportunity to have a top interior designer revamp their home, creating an aspirational and visually stunning transformation.

The criteria is quite specific in that I need three households who all live in architecturally identical properties, for example all 3 houses might be a Victorian terraced or a 1930’s semi or they could all be Georgian townhouses.

I wondered if this might be something for your members/parents and I would be grateful if you would consider bringing the show to their attention.

Splash Media are an independent television production company founded in 2006 by ex BBC Head of Entertainment Jane Lush and BBC Executive Fenia Vardanis.
We have developed and broadcast successful property shows in the past such as Fantasy Homes by the Sea and Celebrity Fantasy Homes with Gaby Roslin, Piers Morgan On…Dubai/ Monte Carlo/ Sandbanks etc for ITV1 and we are currently in production with a new property series called Marbella Mansions. Splash Media has experience of working with major British Broadcasters making a wide range of programmes including James Martin’s Operation Hospital Food for BBC ONE, Great British Hairdresser for E4 and Cleverdicks, a new quiz hosted by Ann Widdecombe for SKY.

Are Form Models in London an agency /Form Modelling Agency?

 Are Form Models in London an agency? What is Form Modelling Agency?

Form Models in London are not a model agency. Form Models is the name used by Neptune Studios near Waterloo to sell modelling portfolio shoots.

You may be told by Form Models in London that you have been selected or chosen for a modelling shoot. This is purely designed to convince you to attend the shoot, all they want to do is sell you a modelling portfolio as that is their business. A real model agency makes their money by booking models for work and taking commission.
