Took more than 2,800 dollars promised to pay back if I wasn't happy and never did it. Played with the dreams of first time parents.
First is the photoshot then they tell you that your kid has been choosen, but must extend your contract for four more years and that is how they take your money and you never see it again.
AKA, Model Talent Development, they're ripoff artists, plain and simple. Hard, fast sell for digital photos anybody could take, and they don't tell you all the prices up front, such as the fact that putting your pictures on their website costs extra, along with other fees. Google their reviews, and don't fall for their scam.
New Faces development are Con-artists – These are con-artists. They hard sell 10-15 min photo time that has no props, scenereies, wardrobes, coaches, lessons in a cold non-heated garage. They give false promises but they really just follow an elaborate scheme making you and rushing you into signing an agreementt tricking you to pay between $550-$2500 to get some unprofessional digital photo time. You dont even get to keep the photos unless you pay more later on. They tape you, make you sign agreements in a rush and push you to get the photo time done right away even when our son is wearing wrinklly clothing and they did not help in teaching or coaching him as promised. We paid $550 for 15 min photo time that we never saw the pictures much less keeping them. We called within one hour to get our money back but they denied it. You see, they cover their "asses" by taping you getting excited about your kids'faces will be on ads, magazines, 95% chances of getting modelling gigs etc and they secured our money with the agreement that they rushed us to sign without reading it. The entire time and going forward it is just a scam to get our money outright and legally without providing any modelling portfolio, coaches, lessons, advertisements to any companies. They are predators preying on the hopeful dreams for our children. They will pay for this. I will make sure of it. Legitimate companies would refund the money when customers are not receiving what they are supposed to receive. We dont even have or see anynof the pictures taken in that 15min time. They still own them. There was no modelling coaches, lessons, make up, wardrobes, or even someone standing by my son to make sure his clothing or lighting was right. Babiesrus and jcpenny who costed us $99 for digital copies and printed multiple 13x10 pictures spend more time, have more props and do more coaching with picture taking than these people who call themselves a modelling agency. New faces photo room was in a non-heated garage and the photographer was wearing a winter coat taking my son's pictures. His colar was wrinkled up and shirt was lop-sided and she continued taking pictures that were supposedly for his portfolio. 15min and out of $550. That was the service rendered and they claimed it was worth $550. We got no pictures, portfolio, lessons, and i can only infer that there will not be any modelling gis either. This is outrageous. They scam and prey on innocent kids' parents' hard earn money.
I just want to thank New Faces Development for a wonderful experience. As a fashion photographer I know firsthand what a difficult industry this is to break into. The process from start to finish was so professional and enjoyable.New Faces development provided my daughter with numerous opportunities to meet with some of the biggest model and talent agencies from all over the world!
After modeling in Europe and Asia, I wanted to move to America to start my career in New York. I never realized how difficult it would actually be to break into the New York fashion industry. Until I found New Faces, it was the only company that took the time to truly help guide me and put in contact with all the biggest agents in New York. With their assistance I am starting my modeling career in New York and I owe it all to New Faces!
My daughter, Leah, has been doing projects steadily for the past year and a half. She sincerely thanks New Faces Development for helping her promote her career. Leah is currently with a top modeling agency, which as anyone would agree, is a girl’s dream come true. Thank you New Faces Development for all you support!

One minute I was walking through the Smith Haven Mall, and the next, I was shooting French Vogue with Brooke Shields. I wouldn't have even pursued this if New Faces didn't approach me. Thank You New Faces!
This has been a great experience. I’ve gained hands-on experience and interacted with real agents/casting directors in the industry. Thanks New Faces Development.
