I went for the interview. Well they told me it would be some $300 for her mug shots, and then I could break down the cost of the classes in something like 4 payments of $120 (This figure could be wrong, but it's close). They said I would have to pay for books, classes, photos, and a professional portfolio. I paid for the photo shoot that day, but set up a date for the shoot.
The next day I had to go to an already scheduled doctor's appt. When I went, I found out that I needed a major operation and would not be able to afford, let alone transport my daughter to and from these classes and sessions. I called the company and explained my problem. They said the same thing. They would reimburse me. 'Check is in the mail'. I waited, then called again. They said whoever I talked to was mistaken and they don't refund any money. (Same as above also, it had to be done in 3 business days, which it was, but there was no file). The woman told me that they would keep her in their files for 'life'.
Two years later, yes it took that long to recover, I pulled out the paperwork for my 'lifetime' contract and called ES. They had no record of me or my daughter...
As stated by the person before me, if one of these modeling agencies won't accept YOUR protraits, or take the photos for free, they really don't have that much confidence in you/your child's talent.
