Little Sprouts
I got a phone call from Little Sprouts Talent Agency today. Has anyone used them or know anything about them? Any online reviews were good, but I could not find much information outside of their website.

I did google them but could not find much. This is waht concerns me, the maintenance charge. I was told I would either need to pay or get the composite cards which I heard are more expensive. I copied and pasted this from their website.

Infants up to 3 years donít need professional photos. If accepted into the agency, you can use your own photos that we approve or you can come by the office and we can take some shots at no cost. We will then create and add you to our model catalog, which is available to our clients exclusively for castings. They can view and print the models for jobs we submit for. There is a onetime maintenance charge of $150 for this service. Kids in this age set change every day and it is necessary to constantly update and change the photos. This age requires quite a bit more work for us than older children. The model catalog is not required if you plan to get or already have Composite Cards or Zed Cards for us to use.

Is there any way around that online portfolio?
They did seem legit when I spoke with them, and I could not find 1 bad review anywhere online.

If they ask for money upfront, chances are they ARE a scam, so I would stay clear.

Thanks
I definitely will steer clear of them...$150 is a lot of money to have to give them up front. I read about some of the other agencies that have scammed people on here as well. Sad so many people are out there taking advantage.

you dont have to do thew portfolio. you can make model composit cards that they can use to send out for you, Audrey works with little sprouts they are legit. the reason why the protfoloi is better is because at a young age you need to update pics every 8 weeks and that would get expensive if you are making cards.

Ruby Contracts
hi everyone,
Ive been contacted by a few agencies out of Ohio for Ruby. Its hard to pick because i really havent come across any huge agencies in Ohio. Heyman Talent was recommended to us by FFT in new york. They are interested in Ruby and have asked for four professional quality photos for there files. I guess thats normal? But there the only agency that hasnt sent us any form of a contract which maybe could be a good thing..i dont know. I emailed them asking that question so that we can figure out how much she will make if she does get any jobs. Plus although its a reputable agency they dont get much work for babies so should i play it safe and sign with them or join with a smaller agency that maybe gets more work for kids. its all so confusing! Wish we lived in New York to cause FFT was willing to sign her :-(

i am in the same situation. There are not many agencies here in onatrio and most of them only take fro ages 3 and up. Thats why I went with a further away agency because they can still get you work in your area. We make 80% of every job that Audrey does and they take 20% and I didn't sign a contract which I am happy about. Good luck ith everything.
