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!

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Horrible!!!

AUTHOR: Modelstar - (United States of America)

This agency is not an agency. Its a school that takes your money
for bad classes. The agents are stuck in the 80s and treat every model bad.
They are unprofessional and have a terrible rep with casting directors.
Beware!!!! Get a real agent like maggie or click
Run for the hills!!! Rip off!

NEMG - scam agency!!!!

AUTHOR: Kate - (United States of America)

Girls, anytime an agency charges you money, it is 100% a scam. NEMG charge for classes, they charge for pictures. NEMG affiliated with IMTA which has an AWFUL reputation.

They have a lot of "models" who don't fit any working modes, they do not update their book, some pictures of models at list 5 years old. No client lists, no examples of  real success or models they can show as having gotten  good work from NEMG. When NEMG talk to you,  it sounded like they trying to sell a car ;-)  Their top priority is getting their hands on your money, not on getting you a great career in acting or modeling. BEWARE!!!!

NEMG scam

AUTHOR: Lora - (United States of America)

NEMG SUCKS!!! NEMG scam people they do not have much work for their talents.

Nick Purcell maded himself his own way to "Hollywood". NEMG keep him in their book cuz they want to be noticed and Nick's face help them to attract talents.

I talked with NEMG on a phone, they  trying to sell "classes" and they will sign up with you only  after you pay for classes and you pay for putting you on their web site. Otherwise, they  say "NO"  even if you are  a Stunning Model!
They are unwelcome and very unprofessional.
NEMG said they are small agency and THEY need some money to be on a "boat" that`s why their revenue involves "classes", but they also saying they have a lot of work for models.

If they would have enough work for talents they would do not push thier  classes so hard.

 Lies and Scams!!!!
