RUN AWAY as far and as fast as you can from these guys!!! They are selling a DREAM to eager and gullible people. Was there with my girl and they had us waiting for five hours to 'select photos' shot the week before. Then after paying $750 for photoshoot and $45 for Copyright fee, was told you need to spend $550 more for six months of website exposure and with nothing more than a contract that said they will email the photos ONE time. I don't know how they are able to rip off so many people and not be stopped. Do the math, In just ONE day they probably shoot more than 100 kids, with an average fee of more than $1000 per kid that is $100,000 in a DAY!!! This place is a MONEY MACHINE, but it all comes FROM YOU !!!
I went there few days ago and it was a joke those prices to take a photo shoots the guy Tim thinks that he can impress people just to show you magazines and DVD telling you that they find new faces and you can get a job easy with them all you need is to pay for the pictures but there is more money behind that. Thank God I find out that they just want to take your money away and I didn't make that big mistake I feel sorry for those people that lose there money somebody has to stop this agency the money is very difficult to make to let people like them take it away that easy doing nothing just talking BS.
No please it is a huge scam, no one should ask for upfront fees on any model. They charge very overpriced charges and they were also in trouble as welll especially in 2006 by the Attorney General. Please if you have any problem with them is to contact the media, the more our voices are herad the more their business will be known!
They are a ripe off the charge you so much money but they really do nothing. I got my infant's photos done there and totally took advantage of our excitement. I'm still waiting for my composite cards! Thank god our family could kind of afford the set back. They rob so many people a day. Please don't be next !
I am with them right now and to be honest I should of did my research. This was my second day there and a tiny voice in my head say search it up after I already took the photos. I went straight home and search the name up and found all this things about it and honestly I don't know what to do right now honestly I am shocked and hurt. I cried because my mother over draft by doing something for me that put a smile on my face. And now I don't want to bother doing it again I just want to get my pics and leave. I will not give them anymore money .... I feel soo bad I didnt do my search earlier. I shared the info with my mother so she will know what I found. If anyone have any suggestion of what to do now please say
I was there yesterday, and right away you know it's a scam, the intevieweer said the she had rejected a cute talented 4 year old, but yet she wanted to qualify my 4 year old daughter, and then she came out with the crazy prices and as soon as I said I can not afford it she ended the interview saying that I was wasting her time and that we should leave and never come back, my suggestion, stay away from them
I was there on 11/26/11. They are scammers! NO modeling agency would ask for $2,600 up front! ($1,500 for photos and $1100 for web exposure). I should have done my home work first. They are dishonest people (especially Tim Scott) and I hope enough voice will be heard to file a complaint by the attorney general for us to be refunded. Any 5 star positive review you see is done by a member of that unreputable establishemnt.
We were there today. Felt like a total scam. Honestly it felt like we were at a used car dealer. Apparently there was some discount for the holidays but when pressed the "director" could not cite any dates for this "sale". It was really just a pressure tactic to get us to sign up and pay $1500 right there and then. The guy (Tim Scott or something like that) was a real prick. Nasty, condescending, and rude. Do not do business with these people.
I was there two days, boy, it is all a scam, that scott person was so rude and nasty, was only interest in my credit card. Told me that I wasting his time and that I did not have any money. I was I piss off. I drove about an hour, a bid mistake!!! Stay away!!!!
I believe you are referring to New Faces Development center. It is a great place for starting your baby's modelling career. They have very strong contacts with the arts and movie industry and use it to the benefit of their clients. I am sure you would not be disappointed with them.
I signed my daughter up with New Faces Development Center in Hicksville about 6 months ago. I went through the interview, sign up, photo shoot, slide review, comp card selection. After they put the pics online, I realized that I did not like them. They re-shot them the very next week with the head photographer. They wanted to make up for the first shoot being so bad that they shot 2 rolls, inside and outside, (72 instead of 36), and didn't charge me an extra dime. They also threw in a CD and proof sheet for nothing. Then they called her for a Tommy Hilfiger ad but she wasnt thin enough. Now they have selected her to come in for an open casting call. Maybe they haven't made her a star yet, and maybe they do own the studio, and printers, but they did right by me in making sure I was satisfied with their product.
I am verry pleased with their work and performance.
