They will make you get photos through them even if you have your own beautiful headshots. Why? Because they'll look through your portfolio and tell you how unprofessional and terrible all of your photos are and then explain how their's are better. I had photos done by an amazing photograher in LA and they said they wouldn't use the photo.
After you pay for a make-up artist and photos ... they will then add in additional fees for "touch-ups" and for storing your photos. If you refuse to pay (as I did) they then tell you they will take the fees out of your first job.
Soon you will find yourself doing promotional work at Wal-Mart and never getting paid. Why? Because Nik will tell you that you filled out the paperwork wrong or you didn't fax it in fast enough.
It is a huge scam! You won't make any money - or not much and they will continue to beat you down so you feel bad about yourself. If they do pay you anything - it's because you called over and over and over and fought for your tiny paycheck. Even then - you won't get it for months.
I have been working for over a year now without an agent. My last job paid over $400.00. It was a legit commercial job and I loved it. Also, they paid me by check ... the same day ... and they paid for my gas to get there.
Actors are often taken advantage of because we love what we do and we are sensitive, caring people. Don't let VIA get their claws on you! And - don't give up on your career!
