The Life Models' Society (LMS) is a collective of artists' models. We were formed in 1989 to provide a means for life models to get to know each other, and as a support group to standardise rates of pay and to improve our working conditions. Although we do not have the resources to act as a booking agency, we publish a list of available artists' models which is sent to all our subscribers, and updated several times a year.
Back in March none of us would have predicted we would still be facing significant social restrictions in August, but here we are.
The LMS Committee is now starting Zoom Life Drawing sessions featuring our models.
Our first session will feature model Madelyn. Madelyn is a prolific artists of no fixed media, theme or subject matter. She has just started working on a book about bees. She is a model with several years experience for drawing and photography.

September Updates Our constitution has been updated. New version is available here. 2019 Annual general meeting minutes are available here. Various dates for 2020 have been updated on our events page.
Update to minimum rates The minimum rate for drawing increased to $40.00 per hour, for a minimum of two hours, as of 1 July 2019.
In no way do we think this reflects the true value of modeling, and it simply represents the bare minimum our members will accept. We continue to encourage models to charge what they feel is fair for their skills and the venues ability to pay.
