The modelling business is highly competitive and requires total professionalism. Clients need different sorts of people for different jobs, particularly when it comes to advertising and photography – it’s not only the tall, slim models you see at international fashion shows. But what they all demand are people who are trained and competent: people who know what they are doing on the runway or in front of the camera; people who know how to present themselves and look their best, both live and in photos. They haven’t got time to waste on teaching people how to prepare, pose or walk.


 That’s why we offer a complete preparation and thorough guidance to our models and actors, to help them achieve their aims and dreams. We have been in the industry for over four decades now, and have successfully launched many highly successful careers.


For aspiring actors, it is vital to know how to successfully audition for TV commercials, TV series and dramas, presenter work and movie roles. You will be tutored in small groups by experienced casting directors and consultants, directors and media producers.
