John Robert Powers Experience 1/18/2015

I would not recommend JRP to anyone. Not even 1 star is worth it. Aweful aweful awful, scam, scam, scam. It does not matter how many years the business has been around or the few people who work there rave about JRP those who should be models are not picked and those who should not be models are. Their business is just that, a business with very little modeling ethic. It's all about their internal sales not about those who have the real modeling talent. Thank you Rebecca for writing your review in Rip Off in 2005. If you find this read it, Rebecca wrote her experience well. I wish I read it before having our own experience. If you have to pay to be a model you are in the wrong place. I would highly recommend not going to John Robert Powers. more

A great experience 11/23/2014

My family's experience with JRP Philadelphia has been wonderful. The entire staff and teachers are unfailingly professional and polite. They're also genuinely nice people. When you're a student there you're not just a paycheck to them, you become part of the Powers Philadelphia family. In fact, their values, business ethics, and results impressed me so much that I've become a sort of unofficial brand ambassador. Here's what happened after we discovered John Robert Powers Philadelphia. Our daughter enrolled there and got wonderful pictures, which were included in the very reasonable tuition. Through Powers, she was signed by a NY agent and got paid jobs in two movies. Powers Philadelphia is also an agency, which regularly gets its graduates paid modeling and acting jobs. And they don't just work with children and teens. In 2013 I went with Powers to the IMTA convention in NYC. I was signed by both my daughter's agent and a manager/agent in Philadelphia. I've already earned back most of the cost of the convention. Some people say John Robert Powers and the IMTA convention are a scam. Anyone who assures you your daughter can be a high-fashion model even if she's a little overweight, or promises you'll get an agent if you go to IMTA, is lying. Mindy and Mr. Ross, the directors of JRP Philadelphia, never promise that. What they do promise, and deliver, is that you'll go to IMTA fully prepared for the opportunities you'll have there to meet real agents and casting directors. But they can't force agents to sign you. If you or your son or daughter really want to get into modeling or acting, AND you have the look and the talent, Mindy and Mr. Ross will bend over backward to help you. I'm happy to talk with you if you'd like to know more, just call the school for my email address or phone number. more
