He proceeded to tell me about the agency very briefly, and there it was - what I expected - "Unlike any other agency, we do not take any commission off you when you book a job, we just take a £100 start up fee". NO! Reputable agencies are NOT allowed to do this. DO NOT AGREE TO THIS.
When I questioned him about this, he got rude and defensive, saying its the way they've always done it and it works. I asked many other questions about the agency itself, to which he said something like "I could tell you its all great but at the end of the day, we're gonna get you jobs" blah blah blah... It was honestly the most ridiculous phone call ive ever had. He was probably just sitting at home on his iPhone, ********ting his way through.
Also, do not trust 'Studio Boulevard' if thats what they're called. If you are booking a shoot through them, go do your shoot, get your photos, and leave. The photographers are freelance and are not associated with this scam.
Is icon derby good ? My daughter has been asked to get signed to them and they want £100 admission cost for the year instead of commission? Before I pay it I would like to know from peoples experience please . So sorry to be a pain x
Oh and as for the person who posted above saying they had 3 jobs. That's an employer part of the scam. Notice how they only have 1 post? They probably own the same account as the OP
AVOID THESE *****Y SCAMMERS WHO PREY ON PEOPLE
