I used to model when I was in school. However, I left modelling when I completed my college and started working for a real estate company. I was working as the site representative. One day, I got an offer while I was showing the property to a client who happened to be the owner of a product company. We talked and after realizing about my interests in modelling, he offered me to model for him.
He asked me for a portfolio which I did not have as I had left modelling two years back. So, I started looking for companies that do portfolio shoots. My budgets were limited, and I needed someone who could offer me cheap rates. After checking a lot of options, I got to know about the Lyon Marketing Group. I talked to someone from the company and they asked me to come for the discussion.
So, I approached them the very next day. They told me about all their experiences which was a lot to start with. And, their rates were cheaper too. So, I paid them in full and they provided me the shoot date. The entire set up was okay. There was nothing very great about the set up as they flaunted about. However, I was not ready to let the chance get away from my hands and did not sensed the problem.
I did feel something fishy but overlooked it. The entire shoot was tiring. The photographer, at many occasions did not understand what I was asking for. He did not have any proper suggestions. The entire crew was unprofessional, and no one cared about the shoot. The shoot was completed in not more than an hour. And, they asked me to come after a week to collect the portfolio.
I did not hear from them after a week’s time and went to their office without a prior notice. They had not even started the work on my portfolio and everyone was busy attending other clients. I heard them repeating the same lies that they told me.
Anyway, I left. After three days, I got a call to collect the portfolio. I visited them and was very shocked to see the results. The pictures did not look at all amazing. It seemed as if someone had taken them randomly. The story was missing, and it was completely destroyed.
I asked them for a reshoot and they said that they would charge me for the same. I asked them to return my money and they were not ready to do so. Hence, I had to leave without a real portfolio after spending my hard earned money.
I did the portfolio with other company and the photographer was great. I got the modelling project. However, I still repent the day I chose LMG company to do my portfolio. These guys are scammers and great con artists. They have hired some great marketing professionals to excel at telling lies. Beware of this company.
