Developing a website to recruit models

Q: I am a web developer. I have a job offer to build a website, which is related to the (male and female) models. Hiring models. Now, I'm confused, should I refuse this job?

A: This job is not permissible as it entails displaying pictures of males and females. Pictures of all animate objects are haraam and forbidden in Shari'ah.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
