I am sorry to hear that Tim Grant has ripped off other people, but glad to hear I am not alone. I met with him in a Starbucks, at which time he asked for the $300 fee. I told him I was broke but he agreed to take $150 as a deposit and collect the balance later.

We met a second time and he took me to a fashion house where I tried on some clothes for a shoot. We actually did a shoot (without the promised hair/makeup personnel) but I decided I was uncomfortable with the level of nudity he required. He claimed that I had misled him but said I should call to get copies of the photos we had taken.

I called repeatedly for months and months, to no avail. I have never seen the promised pictures, nor have I received my money back. He claimed to be an ethical person and preyed upon my trust in him after our seemingly open conversation.

If you read this, Tim, you can make things right by following through on your promises. Your "rebuttal" that these allegations are untrue is pathetic -- three women who do not know each other have frighteningly similar stories (which says to me that there are A LOT more out there who haven't found this site).

False statements

AUTHOR: Lisa - ()

Ok, I keep reading these pointless complains from so called models and it really sounds silly to me. As none of this complain has anything even close to who is Tim Grant and how he works. I did many different photo-sessions with him and officially state that all that i have read here is false. For so many years of working with Tim and see him working with other people I have never faced with any described above issues. If I deposit and pay for his work, I always get great and fast results. Every photo-shoot always handles very professional. I always recommend him to my friends and have never heard any complains.

I have never been sexually offended during the shoots and never heard any rapping complains from other women. Before each shoot everything is discoursed in details. I always know ahead what my shoot requires. Mr.Grant is very sharp and professional in what he does - just looks like some bimbo minds can not keep up with that. Lisa, New York,NY,USA

SEX OFFENDER

AUTHOR: Rm2805 - (U.S.A.)

I dealt with Tim Grant in 2003 when I first started in modeling and knew very little of how this industry worked. He contacted me through One Model Place and suggested to set up a shoot. He also gave me the same story of how he worked with all these top designers and worked closely with companies such as FUBU and Pelle Pelle, etc. He even used one particular model (which was probably in the schemes with him) and claimed that he was responsible for all of her success and such, trying to use her as motivation for me. I too gave the down payment of $300 which was to guarantee 3 photoshoots total in which he said wardrobe and makeup would be taken care of. I shot one shoot at an apartment which he claimed belonged to the model which he always boasted about which was located on the upper east side. She was there and so was a makeup artist. After shooting, I NEVER saw the images.

I shot another shoot with him in the STAIRWELLS of Ripley Grier studios (520 Eighth Avenue, NY, NY) where he grabbed two outfits from a local showroom; and then he proceeded to pursuade me to take my clothes off for a "modern art/art nude" project for what he called was a coffee table project that he was putting together. Nonetheless, I was treated as pray and was put in a horrific, vulnerable and uncomfortable position. These images he did miraculously deliver however.

In an effort to recieve my missing images, I called and called for months and he never responded or would act as if he lost phone signals, etc. Almost a year later I also found out that the model that he boasted so much about quit working with him, and as for the makeup artist I also ran into him and he had horrible things to say about him including the fact that he still owed him money.

After being in the industry now almost 5 years everyone knows that Tim Grant is a pathetic joke, and sadly I know plenty of models personally that have dealt with the same crap. I WISH Tim Grant would take this to court because I can guarentee that the number of models that would show up to testify against him would not come in small numbers.

He is a pervert and sick minded person. He owes plenty of people that I know serious amounts of money and/or unfinished work and is nothing but a coward that dodges everyone's phonecall. He is lewd and beyond a molester. SEX OFFENDER!!!
