A model asked me about an ad she saw when visiting GG the other day that she clicked on. It was for a Dwight Agnor Model Search, or something like that. She wondered if it was legitimate. I see lots of online info that ranges from high praise all the way to scam artist. Since anyone can say anything they want on a webpage, forum, blog, etc, it is sometimes hard to know what to trust.

So how does a model judge whether to persue something like this? Anyone have any pertinent information?

Cheers,

My check list:

Whom is the company? An agency looking for new talent, a modeling school looking for new "students", an online portfolio looking for new models, a company looking for new faces.

I then check to see if there is an entry fee for the model search and if so, what is the cost.

Then, work in perspective:
If it is an agency: there should be no cost to enter the search and you should contact the Better Business Bureau and/or state film commission to check them out.

If is a modeling school: Don't waste time at all, period

If it is an Online port: I wouldn't pay to enter at all, and if it was free, it would depend on what they were offering for their model search.

A company looking for new faces: Usually isn't any entry fee or if there is, it is very low. Ujena does have entry fees, yet is deemed by alot of folks in the industry as professional. There are many other companies that do models searches and don't charge entry fees: Texas Bikini Team, Hawaiian Tropics (the biggies there); and other small ones can include business that want models for promotions and addvertising that don't want to use an agency (night clubs, automotive business, local designers, ect.).

Basically, avoid modeling schools and any company that wants to charge large (or usually any) fees to enter.

Happy Holidays!
Alicia

also avoid any one claiming to be a "model scout". About 99.9% of the time, that term means "I do sales for a modeling school" or "I am going to tell you that your are great and fabulous and for a $499 you can get these poloraids I took in the hotel lobby on my website that no agency goes to".

According to various internet sites Dwight Agnor is the most famous model scout in history. That being the case, I'm surprised to see very little response to my original post. Has anyone actually dealt with this individual?
