A new feature will be regularly publishing some of the many letters of thanks I get for RAM's services.

Dear Rachel,
May I commend you on the RAM website?
On Sunday I was offered and accepted a long-term booking (ten sessions), and yesterday was separately offered and accepted a  long-term booking (seven sessions to start, with long-term potential) at a girls’ school.  And I haven’t even been on the website for a week!
I’m extremely impressed.
Many thanks.

Dear Rachel,

I wish to thank you for being a great leader and moderator - your enthusiasm and commitment to improve standards are admirable.
All the best,

Hey Rachel!

How are you?
We love RAM!!! Keep up the good work and thanks to make life models life easier.
I'm a big fan!! ;)


Thanks Rachel.

Just like to congratulate you on a really excellent and useful site.


Hi, Rachel

We are very impressed with the standard of modeling and that I am able to source models mainly from the local or near areas

Susie Mason of  The Register of Artists' Models is doing really well since starting a new career via RAM!

Her latest report:

My portrait called "The Ageing Dancer" has been chosen to be in the window, at the Alpha Gallery, 23 Cork Street, £7,500 just in time for Christmas shoppers as is behind Bond Street.  It is also featured in European newspapers and magazines and the artist Michele Del Campo will speak on Spanish TV.  I have told him about Modelreg being a great place to look for new models when he needs for a future project. Usually he chooses models by spotting them in the shopping centres, on the beach etc etc (!) but its always good to have a new contact.

RAM model, Rachel McCarthy.

RAM and Rachel McCarthy feature in this blog. In it, Patrick speaks of how he found RAM and how much he admires the work we do!

RAM and Rachel

Clifford Again! Plus Lucy Saunders. Spirited Bodies.

I feel I must mention the wonderful work RAM model Lucy Saunders and her colleague, Esther Bunting do via the marvellous organisation Spirited Bodies.

The idea is that anyone can model - and these group events are truly joyous occasions. They also, very kindly, audition models for RAM membership.

Here is a recent Daily Mail article about them.:

Keep up the good work, ladies!

RAM Model in Channel 4 Programme.

RAM model, Clifford Allison, sent us this description of his recent tv experience!

My turn for a TV stint today - a life modelling session filmed for television. It lasted 2 hours (eventually!) with a half hour break in the middle for the 2 groups of artists to complete separate questionnaires.
This was all a staged subterfuge on the 20 artists there, who believed they were attending a televised life modelling session.
Well, they were, but that was not the point of the programme, which was a scientific exercise to observe what they ate during the break! I'm not sure how that part went but I was pleased with the session, especially the spontaneous applause the tutor and I got from the artists at the end.
The programme is called 'Secret Eaters' (sic) and, provided none of the guinea pigs object, it will air on Channel 4 on 16 May 2013.
