Watch out for FAKE Agents: ACTUAL CONVERSATION

ThereIronMan Magazine Real Picture p. 150-151 are many great agents and managers in the entertainment and modeling business.  I have the great pleasure of working with great agencies and an awesome manager.  Unfortunately, there are many FAKERS that aren't even in the industry that are looking to take advantage of people new to the business.  Recently, I was approached by a FAKER.  I have been in the business long enough to sniff out  BS.  As soon as I got my first sniff of dung from this guy I knew what  I had to do.  As the Editor-in-Chief of MensPhysique.com I owe it to our readers, my fellow competitors and hopeful fitness models to expose guys like this.  With this tought in mind, I decided to egg him on and see what all he had to say.  Consequenly, I was able to get him to expose his ignorance while at the same time collecting information to share with you.  This will teach you the right questions to ask to find out if someone is legit.  Following is the actual conversation:

 

Jonathan GQ

hey studd

 

Jonathan GQ

Sign with anyone modeling agency wise or interested? Add me on Facebook and follow me On Instagram for details about Fitness modeling here in NYC

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

Already represented. Thanks though!

 

Jonathan GQ

Add me on fb

Are you were presented with a six-figure contract as well??

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

of course

 

Jonathan GQ

Lol hmm

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

Any additional contractual arrangements can go through whichever of my agencies is an appropriate match. Sports/Lifestyle, Commercial or Theatrical.

 

Jonathan GQ

Add me

And this is all of

The above

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

What is your agency so i can research on IMDB?

 

Jonathan GQ

Lol imbd?

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

No disrespect is intended; but, if you do not know what imdb is then it is highly unlikely that you are a legitimate agent or even familiar with the business.

That being said, best of luck with your future endeavors.

 

Jonathan GQ

I'm I know what ImBD is I just don't think that that is where all of the agend mitt fitness modeling or fashion modeling agencies are listed

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

model wire perhaps...which CD's are you associated with?

 

Jonathan GQ

And I am more than legitimate seeing as I am in GQ magazine this month

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

unfortunately being IN a magazine doesn't make someone an agent or manager.

I have been featured in multiple fitness magazines and I do not claim to be a fitness modeling agent.

 

 

Jonathan GQ

I never said that I was an agent or manager I clearly said that I am recruiting for an agent

Add me

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

congrats on your appearance in gq and best wishes.

which agent?

 

Jonathan GQ

Quit being a dick dude

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

Silver or Wilhelmina? those are two large fitness related in NY and I know agents in both...

 

Jonathan GQ

First of all with Wilhelmina they don't pay nearly as much and same with silver I know XXXX personally and have been invited to his house more times and it's mainly the fact that neither of them paid six figures and neither of them are The top-of-the-line in this industry even in the US

 

Jonathan GQ

I live in the same penthouse building XXXX XXXXXX

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

They don't pay as much? Agencies take a percentage of the contract they help you land...they don't pay you anything....

 

Jonathan GQ

Of course that's what I'm saying they take out more than what other agencies take out of what do you make while getting other gigs

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

what agency

 

Jonathan GQ

Add me

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

i don't believe you and don't care for your bossy tone. best of luck to you.

 

Jonathan GQ

Bossy???

Lol you're a joke

I'm typing

There is no tone

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

not a joke. experienced.

 

Jonathan GQ

Inexperienced

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

a legitimate agent doesn't initiate a conversation with "hey studd"

 

Jonathan GQ

I never said anything about hey stud

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

a legitimate recruiter would have a url to the agency they are working with.

a recruiter with a prominent agency would know a bit about the person they are interested in recruiting

 

Jonathan GQ

Already gave that too

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

no...no you didn't

 

Jonathan GQ

Did

 

Ian Lauer Ifbb Pro

you said your agency PAYS more than Wil or Silver...which is a sign of not knowing the business

Managers/Agencies usually get 10-20% depending on the agreement.

 

Jonathan GQ

What are you talking about that's what I was talking about it doesn't take as much out of the gigs that you land so quit trying to twist up my words dumbass
