Hiya, I'm new to model mayhem so not totally sure how this works!
Erm, this is just putting myself out there I suppose. Feel free to take a look at my portfolio and message me if you'd like to work together some time. smile

Welcome to MM...

Familiarize yourself with the browse & casting section. Those will help you find people that you want to shoot with. Look through the forums, but I recommend that you lurk for a bit before you get too involved. Best to get a feel before you end up putting something out there & seemingly get roasted for making a noob mistake...

Good luck!

Since your a minor and you really need to be careful out there and always take an escort with you no matter what the photographer says.  Good Luck, be careful and have fun with it!

In fact, the photographer who tells you "oh, you don't need an escort it's okay" are the ones to avoid! Take it slow. Get a good feel before jumping right in tongue

Really.. i never have had or will have an escort because
i live away from home and work  , and i still shoot with
good people ?

but perhaps if she still lives at home she will be different ?smile

In Canada, the age you can legally sign a document is 18. If model is 16 or 17, a parent or 18+ legal guardian can sign as a witness to her signature verifying model understood what she was signing to (the MR/contractual agreement). I dislike escorts passionately, but believe a parent or legal guardian would serve a secondary purpose on-set of enhancing the young model's level of comfort as well. Especially with a photographer who looks like me tongue

Welcome to Model Mayhem Ellie, you are going to love it here. One thing ALL new models MUST do is learn how to recognize and avoid scams. If you look in the MY STUFF section of your site you will see a red square that says "Avoid Scams". It is vital information for all new models. Scammers prey on the new and inexperienced. Here is a direct link for you.

Once again, welcome! Let me know if I can ever be of service!

Except, both Leah and the OP are in the UK where a release is often not required.  There may be nothing that either one of them needs to sign.

That explains why Leah goes off to her shoots alone.
