Complaint / review text:
This so called professional photographer is lying about his professional connections, after researching the modeling industry I found out he is not taken seriously by any of the agencies in New York, and his work is NOT at the professional level that he claims it to be. Just compare it with what is in the magazines.
I was called by his company to do a job, which I was not even offered to be paid for. Then was told that if I wanted to make it in the fashion world I would need to buy a photoshoot from him.
This guys is a con artist that is working with through companies like OMP, musecube and others, to trick wanna be models into buying photos by him. He cliams to have working studios around the country, checked into it (another lie) He boasts about his professional connections, and in reality he just belongs to camera clubs, that do not make him a "professional photographer."
Furthermore he told me that he owned OMP and that the people involved are all his business partners. That has shot all the top models and does not use the photos because it would discourage other models (LIES).
I was shocked but not suprised to find out that in reality, he does not own OMP, and that he has photographed a few of my friends in a very poor taste sort of way. (More along the lines of soft porn.) Which could explian why he markets himself through OMP.
It may be possible that his photostudio is a front for a much more devious operation that my even include pornography.
Models like myself deal with people like this unfortunatly on a daily basis, however be weary of this business, they are professional con-artists, NOT professional world class photographers, at best maybe amatures tying to trick us models in to wasting our money on amature work, and being misled into signing releases of soft pornographic materials without knowing we actually did that. I. E upskirts and panty shots. Nudity dressed with a flower... Etc... Etc...
Be careful girls, A concerned model.
