Absolutly not. As a model you are required to invest in your comp card.
Many model management companies and agencies require this.
We probably sign about 1/4 of the people that we see in a week. The success of our company is the success of our models and actors. That is also the reason that I request a photo of you before attending. Our open calls a generally invite ONLY, because we do not want to waist our time.
And yours. This is not a large model search where anyone and everyone can attend.

You have no license registered with the State of each of the four cities you claim to have offices. This is illegal.
New York, San Diego, Chicago nor Detroit.
It is a requirement to do so if you are representing talent.
You are a Staffing Agency.
You have Spam ads all over the internet with Google ads on the side bar of most anything you pull up to do with modeling.
Spam ads that are either looking for models or looking for talent scouts.
You even FEATURE other non-reputable or not well known agencies
You do heavy promotions to try and lure talent I,n don't you?
http://onesourcetalent.tripod.com/ – scroll half-way down the text to view those.
Agencies use track records/ brief client lists (if at all) to show their reputations. Not testimonials from random people who we know we'll never be able to contact for a reference.
Your website appears to send mixed signals. Which clients don't like. Clients want an easy way to search for talent...not go to a website and sift through promo ads asking models to sign up, etc...
You have ads in the online phonebooks of the cities New York, Chicago and San Diego. The biggest thing I see on the site is you being referenced as a Merchant and this statement: We take Visa/MC, American Express. Heck, you even take Discover!".
You are mentioned on every scam warning site imaginable. Even the not-so-reputable sites.
You are linked to TCT, and Wilhelmina Scouting. All three names including a fourth, Options Talent, have been implied to be operating under false promises.
Being linked to TCT brings up this interesting piece of info which makes a person curious as to the reason for the many name changes.
Conflicting info is everywhere. This link lists a different address for your California office.
You’ve been discussed here before…
This is my favorite.
You’re selling FRANCHISES!
According to One Source Talent, I can actually become an owner of my very own Talent Agency with…
