How they make money = from you.
They have no other way.
Get your mom involved in everything you do. No matter how old you are.
A genuine agency is legally not allowed to ask you for money. They get their income fromthe clients who hire the models.
So any agency that asks for cash is a scam.
Look on industry sites like
Remember a legitimate agency ONLY makes money after they book you on a job then takes their commission. They do not charge you for classes, photos or anything else. While a model will have to pay for her own comp cards and a few test shoots for her portfolio, any decent agency will have a list of at least 5-10 recommended agencies the models contact on their own, negotiate a price and pay the photographer directly. You never pay your agency for photos or one specific photographer/studio they are forcing you to use
