What’s coming up with I WANT TO BE A MODEL

It’s finally 2019 and we have lots to come this year for all aspiring models! If your New Year’s Resolution is to achieve your hopes and dreams of becoming a model, then there are so many excellent opportunities coming up! It has now been 25 years that I began my career as a full-time model and having been employed with some of the country’s best model agencies as well as working internationally with top brands, I would like to offer opportunities for young people to achieve their dream of becoming a model too! The industry is becoming increasingly competitive so it is always a bonus to ensure that you have knowledge, qualities and a strong portfolio which will set you aside from the rest.

Some of our feedback from 2018 has been excellent. I & the team are delighted to see that people have felt relaxed, increased their knowledge and also

been signed to great agencies! (Feedback below)

Meet Apollonia Llewellyn

I have previously worked alongside Apollonia and she truly is an inspiration. She currently holds title for World Teen Supermodel England, and I am happy to announce that Apollonia will be joining me to provide an EXCLUSIVE Model Masterclass on the 3rd of February.

The Masterclass is for aspiring models aged 15+. You will meet myself and Apollonia and spend 3 hours learning about the modelling industry and our personal experiences. You will also receive exclusive training in: poses, expressions and catwalk.

Each model must bring 5 outfits for 5 different photoshoots! Each shoot will then be part of your personally tailored package wherein you will choose 10 edited images to start up your portfolio! Your images will then get sent off to top model and TV agencies! You will also get to take away a list of other reputable model agencies to try.

Kids Model Open Day

I will also be holding an EXCLUSIVE Kids Model Open Day event in Leeds on the 2nd of February. This image is of some lovely siblings who came to me for a shoot and both got signed to a brilliant model agency… they also went on to eventually do a model job with me!

The Open Day is aimed at helping kids ages 0-14 to get signed to reputable model agencies. I am increasingly seeing scam model agencies popping up EVERYWHERE and it is worrying to see how many people are unfortunately fooled by the scammers. I am here to help and want to help your kids achieve their full potential as a model. There are no hidden fees involved, no joining fees it is purely an Open Day run by me, Matt Bates, full time model of 25 years.

During the day each child will take part in 3 different, professional shoots wearing different outfits and get to take away their professional, edited images! The images will be sent to reputable model agencies & parents will also be given a list of researched model agencies (some of which I have worked with myself) and other small-scale agencies to try! You will also have an exclusive lesson in modelling and what it’s like to be in the industry.

LIMITED SPACES APPLY TO THIS OPEN DAY! This is an exclusive event meaning that there will be 20 spaces available!

 Can’t make it to one of the above events? There are even MORE model classes to come for 2019 so don’t worry!

The Open Day & Masterclass will be held in my model studios, Leeds. Please see the below contact details to find out more information regarding location & times.
