The LMS was formed in 1989 to provide a means for life models to get to know each other, as a support group to standardise rates of pay and improve our working conditions, and to collate a list of active models to send to our subscribers.
We are a collective of life models who stand in solidarity together to improve working conditions for life models in Melbourne. We look forward to welcoming you into our collective.
You must attend a workshop to join the LMS.
The workshop is suitable for people with no experience, or a small amount of all levels of experience as a life model. Models with experience in the field, or who have modelling experience primarily in another industry, who wish to join the LMS are also required to attend this workshop.
We cover life modelling basics, health and safety precautions, tips and tricks, boundaries and consent, with a focus on the LMS Working Conditions. Participants will receive a guide to take home, including a copy of the Working Conditions. The workshop allows you to assess, in a safe space, whether working as a life model is right for you.
Upon completion, participants will be invited to join the LMS or a recommended to repeat the workshop if we feel you need extra support.Workshops are scheduled for the following dates/times:
