This is my experience....draw from it what you need to be informed. The wife interviewed us and said she would like to represent Kayla. I asked if she would be in better demand because she is biracial and the answer was yes. We paid for all the photos and they did come out really beautiful. We also paid additional money to be represented by the agency. I am told each and everytime I bring my daughter anywhere that she is beautiful (thank goodness she does not look like Mom) of course I am proud that Kayla has a great heart, a wonderful spirit and a jest for life...needless to say in the entire year she was represented she received only one call and then a return call after that she would not be needed for the casting call. I am more than disappointed in the company. Another issue is that they say they are working hard to get jobs but you have no idea what is being done on your behalf. Another very weird situation with the company is after the year was over I received a call the agency called but did not use my child's name but rather a different model-I know mistakes happen...but it was very strange.

I would recommend for those who believe they have the potential of becoming a model not to go to Dynasty models. This agency is a rip off, a bunch of hungry money nazi's. I have been with them for three years and it was a total waste of time. Joe Freeman is a corn man and so is his wife Joe Free man. Modeling agenices aren't supposed to ask for money up front at least the real one's aren't. Ask anyone who has model and excelled at this. They all have the same thing in common, they are affiliated with a NY agency. You would be a fool to go with Dynasty a big fool. For anyone trying to further there career and believe they have potential try click boston. They are an NY agency with a branch in Boston. They actually test shoot and if your pictures are good enough you are shipped off to New york. BOOM there you have no lie. I speak from experience. Dynasty is just not good enough.

Not impressed. I think they're a scam. Why? Because when I and my 5-year-old daughter recently met the owner Joe for a ""private interview"", within 3 minutes he handed me a price list that added up to a minimum of $1,000 for head shots, comp cards, etc. When I said I could get all that done on my own because I know people in the business (which is true), he immediately that comp cards MUST BE purchased through Dynasty which costs $495 for 150 cards. BTW. You can get comp cards printed on your own for about $100 for 500 cards. Here's the kicker. The ""private interview"" was supposed to be for Joe to meet my daughter to determine if she had potential. The problem is he barely acknowledged her presence during the interview. No surprise there. He was too busy reviewing his price list with me. I'll tell you this, he must be a good salesman. While I was there, the waiting room was packed with kids and their parents having photo shoots done. Keep in mind, according to Dynasty's price list, they get anywhere from $275 to $525 for each shoot. Throw in the optional add ons of make-up artist, hairstylist and clothing stylist and you're talking an additional $250 to $500. And don't forget about the $495 you MUST pay Dynasty for their comp cards. I asked a few of the parents that were there if they're kids had gotten any jobs through Dynasty. None had.

This is an agency that I enjoy working with, they have cute kids and some great print models. Sometimes they send out a few more models than I would like to see come in, but they always send kids and they have strong cards. I just need those cards, I cannot depend on computer color and I need to compare. Joe seems like a nice guy and is great about calling back
