I met Francois through Model Mayhem, actually he found me, and i was very flattered because he wanted to work with me right away, i was fine with it because he seemed like a professional and when i looked him up online i didn't see any scam reports or complaints untill now so i figured that i was safe... anyway the first day i met him in person was at his apartment in Queens first off he doesn't even want to see anyone who isn't going to pay him.. he kept pressuring me to pay him upfront and he told me that i had to strip naked in order for him to take my measurements.. when i told him that i was a bit uncomfortable his personality changed like Dr. Jekyl and Mr.Hyde!!!!! he got angry and annoyed and said that if i wanted to be a model that i shouldn't be uncomfortable in situatioms like these... i actually believed him (wow i feel so stupid now)
anyway i only did semi nude so he could take my measurements and i was fine..

but on the way to his house he called me and asked to buy him some food!!! i thought to myself( why is he asking me to buy him food when he is supposed to be a well payed celebrity photographer?!?!?!?) i told him that i couldn't and he got angry.. i couldn't understand why.. anyway we did a photoshoot with the MUA that he uses and a couple of other models and he was actually an hour late!!! when we finally did the shoot and the other models would leave to change their clothes... he would wait for us to be alone so he could say all these nasty and sexually explicit things to me.. he would flirt and feel me up whenever he had the chance and even invited me to a celebrity orgi party?!?!? but as soon as we were around other models he would insult me and say that i looked fat!!!!!! it was very unprofessional!! anyway i got my photos in a cd and none of them were edited or touched up so i had to do all of that myself on my computer!! I've been able to book jobs but not because of him.. what a rip off, and a very bad experience...

I Believe YOU

AUTHOR: SkyDreams - (United States of America)

People have to realized he treated YOU this way. maybe he's different with other models. it's possible but this is a situation that happen with YOU! I don't understand why everyone is so personal and harsh as if they're with him 24/7 One should never burn their hands for another ....

I believe YOU and I'm glad you file a report ... I am not getting paid for this nor am I recieving exposure. There's no need to lie!To each is own ... Media news said Chris Brown attack Rhianna and people went nuts! Yet average people are stating there's a fake scam artist, predator and people are still being fooled  .... Ladies careful you might be his next victim.

Francois Is The Best" He's An Amazing Person" Get Know Him" Stop Poppin" Bs Like Uno Him.

AUTHOR: Hateraid - (USA)

I had the pleasure of staying at the model apartment in Queens, NY provided through Francois Vision of WeKnowTV. The apartment was safe & secured in a peaceful retirement like community. I never felt unsafe or uncomfortable on any
of my visits. The apartment was fully furnished & also included bathroom toiletries, cable TV, wifi & Internet access.

Anything I needed advice on in the industry, Francois provided me with. I can honestly say I have a better outlook & clearer prospective on the fashion industry as a model, than what I had prior to meeting Francois. When I met with Francois in January/February 2011, I was frustrated not knowing how to revamp myself & career as a model and I explained my frustration to him; Coming from Maryland, a place of "promising opportunities with slim structural foundation on how to advance & move forward outside of local work. I told him what my vision was & how determined & willing I am to progress as a household name in the modeling industry as a Runway/Print Model.
Francois told me straight up what I needed to do & how I should go about it.
He's like a personal tutor, on call whenever you need him. Everything from my image to helping me with my test shoot, to getting me INSIDE at Fashion Week & watching numerous shows, I can honestly say Francois has followed through on his
word. I've even been backstage & met with designers, viewing their model lineups, meeting with people who work behind the scenes with designers being invited to the after parties . I mean up front access most people never have the opportunity of being familiar with.

Recently, I signed with Flaunt Models in NYC as well as Wilhelmina of PA.
Francois helped shape me into what the industry looks for in black models. I never had anyone other than one other person, to spend the time into molding me into industry expectations. He would tell me what size I needed to be, what look to go for, how to carry myself when meeting with them. Sure you learn this through modeling school & the web but, very rare do you meet someone who is kind & generous enough to hold your hand & say, "I will help you, don't worry... You will make it". He's never crossed the line and touch me in an inappropriate manner or made me feel uncomfortable around him. I have new test shoot images I'm able to use because of him, references, Fashion Week access, new agency representation, and a friend I can call.

Renne Alexander - (United States of America): A Racist

AUTHOR: This is a Scammer - (USA)

Oh how I love pictures-Don't we all.  Renne Alexander - (United States of America) is a racist plain and simple.  You so hate being with black/African-American men that you wish to spite them it seems.  It appears that your racism knows no bounds.  Thankfully you can be exposed for (1) Who You Are (2) What You Continue Do in being the racist that you seemingly are.

Oh How I love pictures..especially belonging to racists such as these:

Renee Alexander
Female

19 years old
Jackson, Maine, US

About me I've wanted to be a model since i was probably 5 years old.

i graduated from modeling school and im trying to pursue my dream of becoming a model. im into any and every kind of modeling. It's all amazing =]

I have been in 2 Miss Teen Maine pagents, and i plan on being in the Miss Maine pagent this November.

im trying to build up my portfolio at the moment so im not looking for any certain kind of shots, whatever the photographer wants to put into their portfolio is what im willing to do.

yahoo-Renee_Alexander92@yahoo.com

IF YOU WISH TO KNOW WHO I AM YOU MAY CONSIDER ME AN OBSERVER IF YOU WILL-SOMEONE WHO LOOKS AT RACISTS AND SEEKS TO EXPOSE THEM FOR WHO AND WHAT THEY ARE.

By the way working with a black/African American man and being with one are two different sides of the coin-REMEMBER THAT YOU RACIST.

HE IS NOT A SCAM!

AUTHOR: Confused - (United States of America)

Like I said! He is not a scam or a pervert. Whatever your reasons move on.

This man is repeatable and professional. I am not fooled or tricked by him! when I see things like this being said, and I know the man to be a pleasure to work with, it boils my blood. We can go back and forth on this but what is the point. A good mans name is tarnished because of some disgruntle want-to-be model. The damage is done! The overall good of a person will prevail as time goes.

I am not a liar

AUTHOR: Renne Alexander - (United States of America)

Obviously the both of you are very fooled by Francois... I am a model who has worked with all types of professionals so I don't feel the need to argue with two idiots... To anyone who is out there and reading this... Don't be fooled!!!!! Protect yourself and stay away from anyone who tries to treat you the way I was treated!!! And lastly I just want to point out that I have no personal beef against Francois and never did, it's not like he broke my heart because he never had my heart... And I never made advances towards him, were you there when I had to strip naked? of course not because he would never do that while someone else is present....were you there at the photo shoot? No!!!! so seriously don't call me a liar... I'm just sharing my opinion on the lack of professionalism that he has, good bye

#6 UPDATE Employee

The Accusations are False!

AUTHOR: Confused - (United States of America)

I have worked with Francois for "many" years. I know him to be candid and always willing to help others. Some of the people that come to Francois are hungry for the modeling industry. So he always doses his best for his clients
and tries to help them out as much as possible. Some of the girls and guys (yes guys!) that he represented were not always high fashion runway models. But he guided them in the right direction for print and commercial modeling. I have been to some of the photo shoots and he has always been very professional. I know Francois means no disrespect to his "female" clients. I know you are a lair because he dose not do or say shit like that. You are being vindictive. Because I know him well, I know you are the one who made the advances! Want-to-be models who think they do not have to pay for pictures starting out are puerile, especially if they do not have the height or a certain 'jena se qua' to get noticed. Get over yourself, and move on! Francois is not a scam or sex prowler! Weknow.tv is an upcoming cutting edge production company that has already began to rise up in the industry. I wonder if all this negativity will even matter down the road as his popularity grows and more people get to know the true outgoing, smart, and very professional Francois first hand. All you want-to-be who want to write false reports will be stuck doing the same thing.

Why Are You Telling Lie About A Good Man BC He Broke Ur Heart

AUTHOR: Hateraid - (United States of America)

I Am a former client and employee of Mr.Francois Legagneur and i can ensure you that these accusations above are FALSE! . Francois did not display any unprofessional conduct with his models/clients. He did not touch his model inappropriately nor make sexual innuendos. the following accusations were filled by a Jealous and Upset client who got what she was promised (photos, prints) but wanted more, As most humans always want more. I have also woked as Mr.legagneurs Assistant and have first hand witnessed The Fake accusations, Sexual requests (from clients to legagneur which were denied) as well as Other employess who have also worked for WEKNOWTV, Francois company who have
gossiped fake stories after they though that they deserved more (better pay) Although most of the work done is unpaid and the employees knew that from the start!! I can firmly assure you that Francois is a good man and this are wrong and LIESSSS!!!
