The Life Models’ Society was formed in 1989 when a group of models decided to organise themselves in order to advocate for better pay and conditions for people working as life models in Melbourne.

Since then we have grown to a membership of over 150 models based in Melbourne.

We provide training to aspiring models and new members before they are invited to join the LMS which means all LMS member models have the same foundation level of knowledge whether they are new to the profession or new to the LMS. More about our Workshops is available on the Events page.

We are a volunteer led organisation with an elected committee of seven people. The LMS became an incorporated entity in 2020 and aquired an ABN in 2021. The AGM is generally held in August.

Although the LMS is not a booking agency, we maintain a list of active and train LMS member models in Melbourne and parts of regional Victoria. More information on becoming a member is on the Membership `page.

Artists and venues may become financial subscribers to the list of models, and will also receive regular newsletters. More information on becoming a financial subscriber on the Subscriber page.

For specialist jobs, such as sculpture, body casting, photography, theatre, television, body double work etc, we encourage you to get in touch with us directly, via email, for recommendations from among our membership.
