I just wanted to say that I'm so pleased I joined RAM. As you know, I'm relatively new to the the life modelling world, and joining RAM, has presented me with so many job opportunities that were unavailable when I was 'going it alone'.
Thanks so much for helping me get started with life modelling :) Emilia Jane Hanna
Membership of RAM acts as a reference to anyone booking me for the first time - have had someone specifically say that the RAM membership was as good as a reference for them.
I like that fact that RAM provides a reference point for employers and guarantees first-time models an opportunity to gain a true experience modelling in a safe environment so you know what to expect the next time. It means that there isn't the pressure on your first time to know what you are doing - even if it is unpaid work it's valuable.
I can only praise RAM for all the work it has done in gaining better pay and conditions for life models. I have been offered a lot of interesting jobs as a result of being a member of the Register as it is considered to be a professional organisation that expects its members to achieve a high standard in performance and reliability.
I like the way jobs are advertised on the website, and fact that the RAM name impresses people.
My main positive about RAM is that it looks after models and artists so well - not many other unions or "job-related" organisations and websites take to much care in trying to assure high-quality experiences all round. And the fact that you're so well organised and quick to reply to mail, too!
I thought the audition process was a good idea and a pleasant experience for people who had never modelled before. Also I like that the website is updated frequently and that I can apply for work directly. I recently got a job, using the RAM website, which was a a few hours filming with the BBC for a new art show - I was very impressed!
RAM and Rachel are always excellent to deal with, always friendly and accommodating. A register of reliable and good models.

Great model - turned up on time and managed to keep the pose, even though she was recovering from a leg injury! Very useful site.

It is fantastic to know there is such a wealth of enthusiastic artists' models who are so keen to be involved in my work. I have already recommended your organisation to a friend who I believe posted an ad shortly after me and will continue to recommend it to my other arty friends. Thanks again for your help.
