''The Academy is such a safe way to get into the modelling industry and get noticed by the public, and by the media. On my first Model Tutorial Day I was really nervous about the shoots but really wanted to get some lingerie shots! But once I got there and met everyone I was really comfortable, and the Academy has helped me gain so much confidence.
Since the tutorial, I won one of the Model of the Year heats, and also appeared as a Bond Girl for a charity event at Norwich Football ground with some Academy girls and Kerri! I am pushing myself to gain more experience in the industry and working with the Academy is the safest, and best way to make a name for myself!''
Paige Fitzsimmons, aged 18 from Dereham
''I have been with the Academy for 6 months now and am soo glad I joined! I have made loads of new friends, recieved loads of advice and also enjoyed a Model Tutorial Day where I got my best photos yet! I'm also booking to go on another Model Tutorial Day soon! If you want to get into modeling you should definately join the Academy to meet other models, apply for castings, receive advice and go on the Model Tutorial Days as well! I say its the best move in modeling I have made!''
Kerrianne Crane, 24 from Ipswich
''Once I head that Kerri was offering portfolio shoots I just knew that I just had to book in for one knowing, that it would defiantly be worth while the 300 mile round trip to Norwich. The team boosted my confidence, and I received special one to one attention from all the team that I have never experienced ever from another studio. So girls take my advice if you want to be treated like a star and receive a set of great images, book one of these fantastic value for money packages!''
Amy Walton from Manchester
"In this age where every young girl aspires to be a model, it is imperative that there is a consistant source of information and advice readily available to help those reach their goals and ambitions. The Academy does exactly that, and what makes this site stand out from any other on the internet is that Kerri has been there herself as a young aspiring model, and uses her wealth of knowledge and experience to help those acheive their dreams.
When you log onto the Academy, not only do you get first class information and guidance about the industry, but you become a part of a large family and network of young models supporting one another. Girls of all backgrounds can now have a taste of model life through the various events Kerri puts on throughout the year and with that, have lots of fun on the way. Thanks Kerri!"
Emma Watts, aged 20 from Manchester
''Since joining the Academy Kerri has always been a great help and is always there for support. The Academy gets a good variety of jobs and I've been lucky enough to be a Grid Girl and appear on tv, and also shoot a feature for Nuts, which I applied for in the Academy casting section! I also won a modelling contest with the Academy and went to The Model of the Year grand final, which was a well organised event and all the girls enjoyed :) x''
Micky Sasse, aged 18 from East Sussex
''Before I joined the Academy I did not have much experience so I attended a portfolio shoot and Model Tutorial Day which increased my confidence and I received lots of advice from Kerri. The Academy has found me paid Grid Girl work and I have had many features in newspapers and magazines, as well as promotional work from the advice and extra confidence boost I received from the Academy. Thanks guys!''
Gemma Louise Bott, aged 19 from Manchester
''I have always wanted to model, I have tried a few times but always ended up being scammed! I joined the Academy under a year ago, and went to a Model Tutorial Day where I got a portfolio and help from Kerri on how to pose catwalk. I won the model competition aswell which gave me a place in the Model of the Year final!
Through the Academy I have had a full page spread in Nuts magazine and been a Grid Girl! I feel like I have achieved a lot in such a small amount of time from being with them!''
Joleigh Berry, aged 20 from Runcorn
''Kerri helped me get to where I am today with constant advice, she's very friendly and approachable. There are always jobs to apply for and I've since worked as a Grid Girl and appeared on TV! I was a new model starting out when I joined the Academy, and being with them has really given me confidence and the ability to progress successfully in the industry.
So a tip to all new models starting is look no further to kick start ur career off! Kerri gives advice for all the good agencies and also the scams to watch out for. It's nice to have advice from a person who has been in the same shoes as us models, starting from scratch. A lot more people like Kerri we need and this industry would be a better place.. Thanks so much Kerri!! X''
Lynsey Phillips, 20 from South Wales
''I have always wanted to get into modelling but never had the courage to do so, a friend recommended the Model Tutorial days to me and I thoroughly enjoyed my first one! I was extremely nervous, but Kerri is absolutely lovely and made me feel extremely comfortable.Lingerie modelling is what I have always wanted to do, the photographers are outstanding and made me feel relaxed and I enjoyed all the shoots.
I would recommend anybody to join the Academy and come to the Model Tutorial Days. The days have boosted my confidence and the images at the end are always wonderful! :) x
Gee Goddard, aged 18 from Saxmundham
''I first attended a Model Tutorial Day with the Academy, it was a great price and the best offer I found! I was nervous before the day but Kerri and the team were brilliant and put my mind to ease.
I received advice from Kerri all day on everything she knows about modelling, and got some amazing images in some beautiful setting!
I enjoyed this day so much that i immediately became a member of the Kerri Parker Academy, which has given me brilliant opportunities already. I was lucky enough to be chosen for one of the 30 finalists out of hundreds of girls who entered for Model Of The Year pageant.
I was the youngest contestant and it was the most exciting thing I had ever done! I was up against girls over ten years older than me! Although I didn't win it was a wonderful experience which many girls dream of.
I would most definitely recommend joining the Academy, even if you do not wish to become a model as it really helps to boost confidence and self esteem.
If you are under 18 like I am, I would just like to add how much Kerri looks out for me, she discusses every opportunity with my mum, she warns me of anything which may be a scam and also informs me of any work which becomes available for my age.
I especially love the forum where you will be able to get to know other members, find out about up and coming jobs and everything you need to know to keep you updated!''
Marina Maytum, aged 16 from Norwich
''I had never modelled before I went along to an Ultimate Tutorial Day and it was absolutely fantastic! I received lots of images and my confidence improved so much.
Since then I have gone to many Model Tutorial Days and absolutely love them, I feel part like I have become part of a big new family!
You gain confidence, receive a portfolio and make new friends from all over the country! Kerri offers advice on applying for model jobs, tips on posing and outfits, and how to watch out for dodgy photographers and scams!
Kerri is not just a model or a business woman she is a friend to all the Academy girls. Since joining the Academy I got the chance to be in the Model of the Year Final from winning one of the Model Tutorial Day competitions!
It was one of the most amazing experiences I have had, there where no hidden charges or catches, just a great day for girls from all over the country!
I have also received a paid shoot through the Academy, and always recommend the Academy to all of my friends.
If you look around in the internet you can see various scams, and the high priced days with no pictures included, so if any girl wants to become a model or just see what she looks like in a professional shoot then the Model Tutorial Days are perfect for you!
Kerri is a local Norwich girl who became a star and who now uses every waking moment giving advice to the hundreds of girls on her Academy, setting up competitions and giving other girls amazing chances to break the modelling industry or to just have a bit of fun!"
Joanna Burgess, 20 from Norwich
''Since joining the Academy I have had some amazing opportunities! I have done lots of jobs for the Academy, including catwalk modelling for the House of Fraser 'Bronzed Goddess' fashion show with Estee Lauder, promotional work for Bavaria Beer, working at Snetterton as a Grid Girl, and I already have paid shoots lined up!
I was a model of the year finalist after winning the live modelling contest at the April Model Tutorial Day.
Recently thanks to the Academy I was a hair model in Max Giamello's Vidal Sassoon hair show, and was also featured in Zoo with images from one of the Academy's photographers!
The Academy has helped me with so much - I made loads of new friends, received advice, paid work and publicity, and also stopped me from getting scammed!''
Lauren Bowgen, aged 18 from Norwich
''Since joining the Academy I feel a lot more confident about getting into the model industry, Kerri has put a lot of information and advice on the website to help us and the safety information is really good.
I attended a Model Tutorial Day which was fantastic and I loved my images! Kerri made us all feel so welcome and helped us all with outfits and posing!
I travelled hundreds of miles to do that day but it was so worth it and have already booked onto the next one to build my portfolio with more fantastic images!
Kelly Lewis, 21 from Cheshire
''The Academy has helped me in so many ways as has Kerri herself! They have helped me find confidence and also helped me to believe in myself.
The Academy has made me realise that everyone is beautiful and I have gained so much advice from the website, including fitness tips, fashion and beauty advice, what to do and how to act on a casting and most importantly it has made me aware of how many scams there are out there!
You do not realise how many scams there are until you find yourself in that situation and Kerri is the first person there if you need help!
I have met so many great people through the Academy and the events Kerri holds and have made some friends for life.
The Model Tutorial Days that are held once a month are a great experience. The day is absolutly brilliant you meet so many nice girls and the team are amazing and so helpfull.
The modelling industry is a very bitchy industry to be in but with the Academy everyone is like a family and at the tutorial days you will just see your confidence blossom as mine did!
I would like to thank Kerri for everything she has done for me and how she has helped me and always been there.
I would recommend the tutorial days and joining the Academy to every girl who is either a model wanting to further their career or if you are wanting to get into the modelling insustry. It's a great way to kick start your modelling career!''
