I was interested in signing up with them as well. However I believe if a company wants you should audition for them. If they the are happy you shouldn't have to pay for the shoot or anything else as the only money they should make is commission off each role you land. However this is just my opinion and I could be wrong and they could be a great company. Here is an email they sent me below, hope it helps!
As per our discussion; if you are interested in having us representing you within the Industry, please go to our website and register as an Artist with us. From there, I can help you get your Professional Photo Portfolio sorted by an accredited photographer with the Film and Television Industry. If you would like, I can also help you to get your Showreel done (for as you are aware that opens up so many more doors for you).
Once we have your Portfolio and/or Showreel we can begin promoting you to casting directors, production companies, etc.
Further to our conversation please find relative information re: bank deposit for booking fee (mentioned below) of $199 along with some necessary information for you to read through.
PORTFOLIO DETAILS: $199 (fully Tax Deductible)
You require 3 outfit styles for your Photo shoot: 1. Casual 2. Corporate 3. Evening (funky)

Your Videographer will film you doing 2 scripts that you can either choose yourself or we can supply a range for you to choose from, these scripts will need to showcase various emotions.
You should look at obtaining these as soon as possible so you do not miss out on the current opportunities available.
