I signed with WM models approximately 5 years ago.
I had left because of the many troubles in which they presented me. My parents had forked out at least $10, 000 for photoshoots and the pictures were horrible. What I mean by horrible is that they were grainy, cheesy, and soometimes sleezy. They used the cheapest photographers, makeup artists and stylists they could find, but charge the models a ton to make big profit.Every picture I got back from the photoshoots i cried over.
My parents had already scheduled another photoshoot when a friend from school had died. So I cancelled the photoshoot. Well they wouldn't refund me the money or book me another shoot!
The WM team; James and Tara, are the most ridiculous people I have ever met. It's not that they are rude, they are just down right mean. I don't know what Tara's problem is, but she is completely unprofessional. James is not a whole lot better.
I tell everyone I know to stay clear of them.
I never ONCE got a job, because every casting call I went to, they were all for CHARITY work. I couldn't justify spending the time and money to travel at least an hour to Toronto and not get paid.
They are not a real agency. When I go into other agencies, I don't even bring my book. I just say that I have never modelled before. I seem to get better results.
