As a Mom to four very active children, I have to choose activities that fit into our schedule as well as our budget. When the opportunity arose for one of my daughters to consider modeling, I admit I was skeptical. However, after working with this company for over a year, I can honestly say that not only am I impressed, but I am thankful that my daughter is working with such a wonderful, supportive group of people. \n\nMy daughter attended a modeling camp through the school and really enjoyed the class. The photo shoot and resulting photos were amazing. She has recently completed an acting class and learned a lot during the 8-week course. Her confidence level has grown tremendously and she is looking forward to her next class - Improv! I would definitely recommend this school to anyone looking to improve their acting or modeling talent.

People are often confused by Page Parkes. The Page Parkes Center of Modeling & Acting is a strictly a school that offers training for models and actors. The agency that represents models and actors (talent) is Page.713. An agent helps them find jobs. Although the Center of Modeling & Acting and Page.713 are located in the same building, they are managed separately, and are very different types of businesses. \r\n\r\nThe school will go out to recruit potential models and talent to attend their training programs. Attending the schol does not guarantee that someone will be signed for representation with the agency. The agency will sometimes have model searches. \r\n\r\nUnless someone wins one of their model searches where the reward is stated to be a contract with the agency, then there is no guarantee of getting signed by the agency. In this case, there are usually several local model searches. All of the winners from the local contests become the pool of contestants from which the final winner is selected. \r\n \r\nMy daughter has been a model with the agency for several years. She did not go through the school first. Sometimes I think it would have been easier to go through the school first, because then she would have known what was expected from her and how the agency operates. She has since taken a few short courses (1 or 2 days) from the school that have been very beneficial.\r\n\r\nIf your child wants to go into acting, training is an absolute must, and it will never stop. Most actors take periodic training courses, as well as specialized ones to help them when they are cast for a particular part. Many models take some acting classes too to help them learn how to emote for the camera.\r\n\r\nPeople just need to research things a little better so they know what they are really signing up for.

I am writing in regards to Page Parkes herself. I have read many reviews on many sites. What I have found is that it seems that people only write reviews when they are angry with someone or something. My daughter was somewhat interested in the acting/modeling business. We were interviewed and then given the okay that she could attend the acting camp/workshop. We were really not expecting that would be the outcome of the interview. At any rate, we accepted and then realized that she really is not passionate enough about the craft to commit to something like that. Her talent is singing, which is what she needs to focus on inevitibly. We really just wanted to get her foot in the door....somehow. Once we talked about it together and realized we made a mistake by accepting, I contacted the appropriate people, Page called me personally. I let her know my concerns and she agreed. I was shocked that Page herself called me, i figured honestly that no one would call me at all, maybe that I would get a response from email letting me know there was nothing they could do.................HOWEVER, they took great care of us and offered help any way they could with future endevours. I am very pleased with the outcome. THANKS PAGE!!

Page Parkes is a scam. They got a picture of my daughter that we took in the mall and application.Later we got a call to meet a represenative at Page Parkes at a hotel.I was clueless to the fashion world so i ended up paying about $1,000 for a modeling camp my teen was to attend.So it was finally time for my daughter to go to her model camp in Houston.We ended being scammed and the hotel said there weren't any reservations for the camp.Afterwards we could never get in touch with Page Parkes. They are very good at selling thereselves so my advice is DON'T PAY THEM ANYTHING FORGET ABOUT IT!!!A real legit model agency would never ask you to pay for a model camp.If they really want you they would have you doing photo shoots with no cost!I read more articles about model scams and real agencies DONT ask you to meet weekends,they only operate mon-fri. between 8:00-5:00.A scam like this wont be recognized by authorities because they have no way of finding them either...So that is why i would like to educate others on this type of crime.

At the age of 11 I interviewed for this ""prestigious"" modeling school. I was recommended to them through the country station, KILT. I waited for a long time in a crowded waiting room with wannabe celebrities. Most of these girls were coached by their mothers and clearly weren't interested in modeling. When I got to the agent's office she immediately became fixated on my teeth. I was soon to get braces and she asked why and how come my teeth were so crooked,and when my mom was buying me braces. Next she told me that I was not of any interest to them until my teeth were completely ""perfect"". We called her back at the number when I was a high school sophomore *when the braces were off* and she had either been fired or quit. I don't believe they are professional. They, (like all other phony modeling agencies) wanted us to pay over $1k for their modeling school. I learned that you never pay any modeling school.If you're good enough you get in. Don't go to this place.
