NEW MODELS BEWARE!!!! This company is extremely unwelcome to new models. I was first told about NEMG by a friend who encouraged me to check it out. After looking them up online, I couldn't find much about their agency or their clients, or feedback from other people - I found nothing that scared me away from applying to their agency. I am an agency-stats model and sent in a few photos for review and was contacted by their head of Fresh Faces division for an interview. I went for an in-person interview and everything seemed great, the place was nice, the office seemed professional, they loved my look -- I was certain I was going to get signed. Then she pushed a piece of paper in my face that said I was going to have to pay $1,300+ for "Classes" and "Seminars" to be signed with their agency!!!!! HA!!!
Anyone who knows about agencies knows that LEGITIMATE working agencies do not ask their models (or potential models at that) to pay for classes or seminars! Photos, comp-cards, yes, but never classes or seminars. They were the most ridiculous seminars too that belittled my experience as a model (how to pose 101, how to apply make-up 101, etc) and the lady treated me like an idiot the entire time, as if I knew nothing about the modeling industry at all, or how normal legitimate agencies operate. MODELS BEWARE!!!! NEMG is not welcome to new models, and it seems to me like they don't have enough WORK available for their models and are just accepting nearly everyone that comes along - as long as they're willing to pay! Check out some Boston agencies instead - NEMG is a joke!
