This company is a joke. They find a photographer and pay him $75.00 for three looks and a make-up person for maybe $25.00 of all three looks. The reason they do it becasue when you pack in 15 people on a Saturday to shoot that photoagapher is walking away with $1,125 in his pocket and the make-up artist $375.00 - wow that is great for them, but these models or want to be models are paying for this service and they are paying $600-$900. Now $900 x what 200 models is $180,000.00 ok now $30 a month from those 200 models is $6,000 a month or $72,000 a year petty good for three girls running this company and a few scouts that are told to look for pretty people.
Heather Duback Age 33 - Owner, lives in California
Heather use to work as a scout for Options, Fashion Rock, whatever you want to call it and than bought out and changed the name, but still kept taking money from people.
Vonda Love Age 23 - Assistant, lives in Seattle
High School Drop out, saw a chance to hardly work and get paid
Kattie Age 25 - Assistant, Lives in Portland
Finished School and ended up scouting for Options, which Heather bought out the Seattle office and Portland office so she stayed.
This company will take on anyone willing to spend $900 and up. They claim to work with agencies from Nordstroms, Seattle Models, Cusick's, Heffner, Gloss, Nike, Wilhelmina, and many others, but when these agencies are contacted they don't know who they are.
There has been an long standing investegation into this company that was start by models, then photographers, agencies, media and now lawyers. This kind of company should not be allowed to be out there to steel from people who think they will make it into the industry.
We contacted a few Agencies who have worked with Heather and Vonda and they told us they will never deal with this company again. They hired models, signed models and in turn were lied to, and not paid commission. Two angencies told us they have been contacted by media a number of times in regards to this company. So why does the number of models grow? This kinda of ripoff is bad for real agencies - this must stop. Put people like this behind bars. Who is to blam? Is it Emodels? Options? Wilhelmina Scouting Network? Fashion Rock? Infinite Talent? Heather? Vonda? Kattie? the agencies? or you the model? Whoever it might be we need to put a stop to this crime and put the people who are behind it in Jail.
