My daughter was "accepted" by the agency who are now trading as Blackberry model agency. We were then shown the test shots and quoted £1000 for a portfolio, the total quickly dropped to £400 and could have dropped further as the saleswoman at Media One studio wanted to speak to her boss to see if they could reduce it! I said we would sort our own portfolio and quickly got an email from the agency asking where we were getting the portfolio done.... Read more

If you're not familiar with this particularly offensive scam of a photography company then you probably know of one just like it. It's probably almost as bad, but not quite. It probably hires a giant posse of amateur photographers with Canon Rebels around their necks"”complete with a kit lens attached"”and their turnover rate is probably astonishing. I graduated from Mount Royal University last summer (Class of 2011) after a very difficult, yet... Read more

Went to portrait innovations in Monroeville, PA. First of all - was very busy and hectic. We felt rushed but did like their backgrounds. They take your picture very quickly but they have you go to different rooms and you wait when you get their for us (15 minutes)- then go to room 1 take some photos - wait (again for us 20 minutes totalling 35 minutes of waiting now) - go to room 2 then wait ( we waited 10 minutes which is not bad But for us...

I have worked for this company for 5 years as an hourly studio manager. Let me enlighten you as to how this company works. They advertise a $4.99 package for 30 portraits of one pose. Then we're suppose to sell you at least $80 more, or we're written up & fired for low numbers. It doesn't matter how loyal we are to the company, or how good we are. Money talks. We're harassed via email, and voice mail on a daily basis. Our... Read more

I am writing this to protect you, prospective employee, from this company. Take heed of this warning, as well as the reviews written by a growing community of ex-employees victimized by this business. Many of the reviews posted online have been deleted because of their overtly defamatory contents. use to have a large collection of honest reviews, but have been substituted by fake favorable reviews made, most likely, by current...

I was fired from this lovely company via PHONE CALL! That's right. My boss was completely professional no? People need to know that this place is not a photography studio, it's a sales business. Many of the "photographers" are still in school some way, shape, or form. You are trained on site within like a week. That does not make the professional. We are expected to be in and out of the photo rooms within 15-20min, but if your kid is... Read more

After taking a million shots and poses they put you in front of this huge tv screen with music and you pictures on a slideshow?... Read more

Teddy Bear Portraits set up a photo session at my son's preschool. This was on September 15th. When we arrived to pick up my son (after his picture was taken), they allowed us to select and purchase the portrait package, Naturally, we selected the largest one available, which included "instant" digital images. We were told we would be sent an invoice within a few days. Our account was debited $140 two days later, yet we received no invoice. ... Read more

Portrait Innovations is now officially a rip off. Now when you order pictures you only get the studio view of the pictures you purchased! So pretty much if you want to buy products, or any other items you can't because you may only have 3 pictures! No one wants that! I used to share it on facebook for my family and they would buy four times if not more than what I spent on their to get what they wanted and now their is no use. You just lost... Read more
