*REBUTTAL Owner of company: False Allegations by Brian Styles Photography
First, I was asked to attend a photo shoot with one of their photographers, I believe his name was Simon Gentry. I was asked to pay a few hundred dollars upfront to get my shots taken. Needless to say, I complied.
After months had gone by, I still had not received my photos. I had not received any contract. I had not received any work. And my photo was being used on their model portfolio listing my stats which were all wrong. I was also offered to attend workshops of which I would have to pay more fees upfront.
After doing a bit of research online, I found out that real agencies do not require their models to pay for their own photo shoots upfront and typically collect from the model's first gig. This agency took my money, threw me into a photo shoot with their photographer, and never contacted me again nor provided me any of the photos I had paid for.
After speaking with a few of their current models, we found out that nearly every model was scammed this same way and almost all of them do not receive work or photos. This "agency" pushes 3 of their best models and just collects from the rest on their roster.
This is very disheartening and upsetting.
