After wasting an entire day of my life today I had to add to this review page in hope to save someone else who potentially may waste their time or pay these scammers a penny of their hard-earned cash. I regret not researching this company beforehand and I do hope if you are reading this and are thinking of visiting this agency - you think again. From the moment I got into the crummy waiting area, I knew something was off. They made us wait over an hour, then we were scurried into the studio and the photographer banged out a couple pictures on a low-budget set for around 10-15 minutes, we then were asked to wait around for my babies outcome of his performance. I presumed the photos that were taken were just a test to see how my baby performed in front of the camera and the photos were for nothing more than that. After waiting even longer in the waiting area after the test shoot we were eventually taken to an office where we were told our baby had been approved by the 'agency'. We were fed a lot of chat about brands, pay and possible potential and then the gentlemen slipped in 'and how are you going to be paying the 399 today?' WHAT?! LOL. Little did he know I was a successful model for many years and having the experiance I have never paid for pictures from an agency, so I knew what his game was the moment he mentioned money. If I wanted a portfolio I would've booked one. AND if I wanted to pay 399 for a portfolio I would book it with a professional photographer and make sure it was good value for money for everything I was getting i.e studio hire/ props/editing /photographer creativity. How this company think they can charge 399+ for 10-15 minutes worth of pathetic, low-quality, un-talented photos is preposterous! Then pretending you will be booked for modelling work through their fake website. These scammers need shutting down, I feel so sad for people who have been fooled. I am sorry to read some of these reviews. Stealing peoples money, mugging them off because they have ambition and dreams is VILE. They have to be stopped asap!!

I wasted the journey into London. Then was told I needed to pay 350 pounds if my photos passed their approval to go on their website (which I would have to upload myself)..... and then wait to be selected by their client's. Luckily I didn't have that kind of money to part with in the first place, but they won't tell you anything like this in advance of the visit. They wait to rope you in whilst they've got you "in that visit"
Do not use. Didn't give them any money but everything that is said on this site is fact. I hope that everyone who gave them money gets it back ASAP as this is false advertising at its best.
Really disappointing paid 200 for a few shoots and came out rubbish didn't even tell my shirt are not sitting fine really $#*! $#*! $#*! service

Seen the ad on Facebook and I applied for a FREE!! Photo shoot for my little girl whos only 3months old .. I get there and have to wait in a waiting room for ages then they take us upstairs and do the shoot and told us to wait we then go back upstairs to the consultant to be told we had to pay £700 to sign up and to keep the pics of her so we did being gullible as we want our daughter to have a future in modelling and since then we have tried to contact them for our online profile and they blocked our number DONT NOT GO THERE they still have pics of our daughter and I am taking this further
Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate is who you need to contact to report this scam ppl! My mate is also speaking with watchdog now and getting things in notion to confront these scumbags!!! I hope any who partyed with any money can get their money back...
They have different names, they change all the time, AM Management, Angel Management, Little Angels Management, Blackberry, Model, and God knows what else ...
They will contact you saying that you, or your child has the talent to be a model / actor, it will all seem legitimate, and then you have to go for a photographic test, and there you have the blow, at the end of the test, you wait long hours to talk to an 'agent', who will explain how the company works, but its function is to sell you photos, for an exorbitant amount, DO NOT BET IN THIS, you will not be sent to any job, NEVER.
Just avoid, and call the police
These people are scam indeed. Thank God we read this comment if not we would have paid the £399 for the portfolio. They seriously need to be closed down. Wonder why they are still running. It's a shame as my son's shots where quite nice.
So I went there today as they rang me and told me to come in got there and all it is , is 2 rooms and 3 people working there my son is 3 years old and did absolutely amazing in the shoot like I didn't think he would act so but when we finished I waited down stairs not even 2 mins and she told me to come back up and said that 3 model agencies have already got in touch and it looks amazing that they want to get in contact but for them to send my details to them I have to pay 700£ But when I saw the photos they were so bad and unprofessional I just hated them and didn't want to spend 700£ on them but I really want my son to be in the model industry so I said let me put 50£ down deposit and give the rest on Friday and iv just been on insta and seen a advert of them and seen a comment under neath saying scam don't trust them and now I have looked at reviews I am so happy that I didn't pay anymore and I looked before paying the rest that phone call she gives me I'll be telling her straight the company is so unprofessional it's embarrassing!! For the cheek of it they kept asking what I worked as probably to see if I could afford here $#*!ty photos I hope to warn other people about this !!
If this company is so bad, then why are they still Going? Has anyone reported them or even told the relevant authorities?
Previously traded under the name of Blackberry models, Adora model, and m0del. The address of 24 School Lane and Glenn House, South Langworthy Road have both been attended and have no idea who this company are, the London address of Dalton House
60 Windsor Avenue is a virtual office, and they also have no listing of angel models or Angel Management.
This is a scam. They pretend to be a modelling agency, but all they do is take great pictures of your child / yourself and tell you that the agent loved them, but you need to pay £500 for a portfolio to go on their books which does not lead to any work at all. If you refuse to buy the portfolio they try selling you the pics for £100. I paid nothing and very much doubt I will ever be sent the "free" shot they claim you will get. Save yourself a wasted trip.
Little Angels Photography (littleangels.uk.com) are running a model agency scam using the name Angels Management (angelsmanagement.co.uk).
Their Google Ads suckered me into thinking they were a model agency. They even sent me an email telling me I had a casting for a TV Commercial to make sure I turned up to their studios so they could scam money off me. Alarm bells were ringing but I still paid £400 to go on their books so they could find work for my baby.
Avoid like the plague, and if they have done the same to you, post a review and get them stopped - they are thieves and should be reported.
SCAM!!!!!Beware of Angel Management Model Agency and Little Angels. I signed my little one with them thinking they are reputable model agency for babies and they will find jobs
for him as they say on their web site. I thought I don't have anything to loose as they don't charge registration fee and they claim there is no any other cost. We were called for
a test shoot which was terrible experience as we we there for hours,photographer wasn't very professional and photos were not good at all. After the shoot (about and hour) they put
us in another room and we waited there for about an hour...They showed us the photos and hard sell started...If we wanted our baby's portfolio on their website, we had to pay for
the photos at unbelievable prices... from £500 up to £1000... if you don't buy the photos,no portfolio. We couldn't really afford any of the packages so they put price down to
£399 and we stupidly agreed to that. What a mistake...We didn't hear from them since, there is no contact at all, ...When we checked the receipt from the shoot,at the bottom it
says they are NOT modeling agency and I guess they will never find my son any jobs.I feel like an idiot to fall for this scams...Please don't make same mistake!!!!
On their website it says they are a modelling agency, we got called to come for a test shoot for our baby. They took pictures, made us wait for over an hour and told us he is through. Made us pay £500 for the 'portfolio' and sign this contract. In small print st the bottom it says 'we are not a modelling agency and applying to jobs is at our own risk through their site. So they don't even have contracts with these people! Fell very upset as we'd been mugged. The pictures were great, but it's sad as other legitimate agencies are refusing to use them. Stay away from these!!
Their website makes you think they are a model agency and get you to join free. When me and my baby went along to see them they made me pay for a for a portfolio which I didn't want and then I found out that they are not even a legit agency and will never find us any work
Tip for consumers: Scam Agency - Stay away

Hi! Just read all of these and Im really worried now! Should have read this before as I have paid the £399 for the portfolio! I dont understand, if so many people reported this agency to the police why does it still exist? I found their advert on FB only a month ago. How are legal actions proceeding? Do you have any advices? Im thinking of doing something about this, but I doubt that I will get any money back!
