Come on folks, a real agency does not take money up front, so you are under 5'9" and the other agencies turned you down...but guess what IT accepted you, and your Visa card. Whohooo.

Sorry, I used to shoot for them. They pay the photographer $90 per person for 100 images and the MUA $40 per model......they charge you $695-995 and tell you that we have shot for Vogue Magazine etc.....if I shot for Vogue....I would certainly not shoot for this sorry ass used car salesman, Heather ( that is what she did before Options Talent.com....also a law suit). If you doubt this look at you credit card bill...it says IT, and not the photographers name. Yep...you have been scammed.

sorry, allowing you to give a competitors name would instigate others to just file against their competition, to only come back later to suggest their company your comments on this policy are welcome! CLICK here to see why Rip-off Report, as a matter of policy, deleted either a phone number, link or e-mail address from this Report.

Everything that I have read on this site about Infinite Talent USA is accurate....just wish that more photographers would come forward and say the truth.....rather disappointing for the industry and not a good representation of us.

I stopped shooting for them after 1 year. I did the best work I could for the models and took a serious interest in their future...even passed on their images to real clients. I tried so hard to make this company have some respect for humanity. It did not work.... and I said "Later, you guys are scam artists....see you on 60 Minutes"

If you want a great book for free, please go to www.modelmayhem.com and shoot with the best local shooter in your town.....it will be free....

Heather, Rachel and the other girls at IT are pure evil and have zero respect for people. They did treat me well and always paid on time, I made them a fortune.....and I feel bad for working with them.....the images I took are great and 3 girls out of 167 that I shot have real modeling jobs with real agencies.

What more can I say.....I got sucked in too. Please lets post on www.craigslist.org and put them out of business....permanently. They are a disgrace to all of us that work so hard to make it and have respect for the industry.

Again...my regrets for having been involved with Heather Duback, and very sincere apologies. My new work rocks.....and yes I do now shoot for real magazines and agencies....just don't mention IT....you will be blackballed.

They are no longer in Seattle and Portland....been banned by the BBB... just do a "gooogle" search.....they are scammers.

My best to you all,

Seattle Shooter

#2 Consumer Suggestion

Good for you!

AUTHOR: Anonymous - (U.S.A.)

I have a hard time believing you are really a model, simply because Heather keeps tabs on this site and makes rebuttals all the time. But, you clearly didnt have the same experience, since you paid the photographer directly, you knew how much he or she was paid. If you are happy with the internet data base that gives you so called leads, GOOD FOR YOU! They dont even produce what they say they are going to for that! I had marked on my composite card that I dont want to do swimsuit, alcohol or tobacco promotion, and that is all I got info for! Plus I didnt want to be a promotional model because all they get paid is 15-30 per hour. That is all that I was able to see that they offered. I only paid them for 4 months. Then I cancelled, I advise anyone to AVOID INFINITE TALENT AT ALL COSTS!!!! Literally

Model with Infinite Talent

AUTHOR: Lisa - (U.S.A.)

I am a current model with Infinite Talent. I referred one of my friends to them. She came upon this report. I want to respond to this posting with my experience. I have been modeling with them for a couple years. I had been trying to get into the industry for a long time and had been turned down everytime because I'm only 5'5. Luckly I was accepted by Infinite Talent, because they also do print and promotional work. I needed to get pictures for a portfolio and they referred me to a photographer. I am very happy with the results from my shoot. I know from talking with the photographer that I got a discounted rate on my photos because I was referred by Infinite Talent. I have spoken to other models that have paid twice as much for their pictures. I've been very pleased with the work I have gotten from Infinite Talent. They were honest with me about the type of work I should be expecting. Clearly I'm tall enough to do runway. I have found them to be very friendly and easy to work with.
