Please DO NOT pay any money to this so called "modeling agency"! We were "interviewed" by the daughter in-law to the director, about 5 years ago and were effectively led to believe that this agency was enthusiastic about actually getting modeling work for our school age daughter.
We were told that she needed to complete their (sub par) "training program", (to the tune of $300.00) so that they could begin "marketing her". Well, after successfully going through the the program, we were then told that she would need professinal pictures by their "recommended" New York photographer (another $400.00), so that they could send her pictures to their clients. Well, after the photo shoot (which was NOT ANYWHERE NEAR WORTH $400.00), we were told that she would need comp cards (another $200.00) and then we would need to attend an "agency meeting" (another $25.00) to sign the "contract".
Shortly before the completion of their $300.00 training program, the director's daughter in-law (the one who effectively sold the agency to us) left the area and we were left to deal with the director's considerably less pleasant DAUGHTER, who made no secret of the fact that she was not at all interested in finding work for our daughter and seemed to actually resent it whenever we asked any questions. We still cheerfully complied with ALL of their money requirements, time requirements and effort requirements and to this date we have received ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for it. These people scammed us out of over a THOUSAND DOLLARS! Please don't make the same mistake we did! Run from Wright Model and Talent!
