i was called by one source talent and asked to come in for an audition. i was so excited i couldnt believe it was happening.
i drive 3 hours to chicago with my mom and get sent in a room where we have to sit there for 2 hours with a ton of strangers who were probably as excited as i was. then we get called into groups of 5 and they measured us and i noticed right away that the girl didnt even write down the right bust or waist sizes for me. then i had to go sit down again in the room for another hour when they called me to talk to this woman who was chomping on gum and asking me questions like if id be willing to travel i said yea, but it was my senior year of high school and they knew it. then she asked me to come in again in 2 days and my mom said i could miss school that day.
we drove got an ipass and we drove 3 hours and this company knew how far we lived they got me a contract and said they would like for me to be a model for them and again all my dreams were coming true. then i had a friend studying to be a photographer and he took a bunch of really great pictures of me and i brought them in at my 2 week meeting with a girl named whitney and she said they werent OST material. my feelings were hurt because everyone loved those pictures and so did i. she sets me up with a photographer in chicago and its going to cost 700 dollars and we had to put a 200 dollar deposit in too.
my mom was not happy at this point, but she still did it. the shoot was awkward and i hated it there were about 8 other girks there he had a loft apartment and that is where it all took place make up artist did my hair and no make up and no one would talk the entire time!! it was soo awkward and creepy i hated it! and i was there for 6 hours with no food or anything and theye were sitting there eating and drinking in front of me.
i got to leave and i went home and got onto my OST page and the pictures were up and they were so bad. he took some where i was in the middle of blinking and i looked really ***. i couldnt believe how dumb i looked. I never got casting calls and the company said i needed to be sending my stuff out but im pretty sure that is why we were paying them 40.00 a month.
i talked to my parents and told them i thought it was just a joke and i had them cancel my account. im not doing ANY modeling now but how can i trust another company?
