Models Stop Agency Ripp-Offs for Photos
Model Portfolio 2 Looks for Nick Gavin demonstrates the promotional energy and creativity that can come even from our basic model portfolio session. Models and their friends and family need to understand how to recognize quality photography along with truly helpful representation by real model agencies. They especially need to be on the lookout for scams when it comes to the creation of a model portfolio.
This is not a good thing for you as the model for two reasons. First, If the agency is not making the bulk of their money from bookings, it means that you, as a model, are very unlikely to get booked through your affiliation with the agency. Second, it means that you are overpaying for photography that most often is not up to professional standards. You may not realize it at first because you are not used to the wide variation in levels of quality that abound in the new wild west of professional photography, where there are far more amateurs posing as professionals than there are actual professionals.
There is only a handful of real model agencies in the Philadelphia area, and only a handful of real photographers. Take your time to sort out the wheat from the chaff. You can’t afford to waste your time and money.
