Complaint Review: Sharlet Grier Models
Sharlet Grier Models Silka Sosa of Sharlet Grier Models is a thief!!! STAY FAR AWAY! New York New York
Silka Sosa of Sharlet Grier Models is a thief! Not only has she stolen from me but she has refused to pay models and has conducted herself in an unprofessional manner at photo shoots. While signed to the agency, I paid $300 for my photos; however, the photo shoot never took place and Silka refused to refund me. Since then I have learned that an agency should not ask a model for ANY upfront fees. All monies for the portfolio should go DIRECTLY to the photographer. All negotiations for the shoot should take place between the photographer and the model, NOT the agent.
Although I took Silka, Tamico Hodges, or whatever her name is to court and won the case, she still has not paid the judgement. She's a liar and a thief that is HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL! I am not the only one that Sharlet Grier Models has taken advantage of. There is a long line of disgruntled models, MUA's, etc....
To all aspiring models:
There are many people preying on unknowledgeable models that are new to the industry. Please remember that having no agency is BETTER than being signed to a bad agency. If an agent requests any money upfront, politely thank them and walk away! Any fees for the portfolio go to the photographer. An agent that is requesting money for photos is a SCAMMER! Please do not get desperate. There are reputable agencies out there. Model agencies such as Sharlet Grier can do nothing FOR you and can do nothing to you. A woman such as Silka has a terrible reputation and she can do nothing to further your career.
