Actually if some of these pics were my head shots. I would ask for my money back. Some of them are good at best but the majority of them are poorly shot and look like they were shot by a high school photo student. This is what people spent 800 dollars on. Unbelievable!

Want to talk about professionalism, I used Richard Bertone for my comp cards as well, I did the whole Karon Shea, John Wood thing, I'll chalk it up to a bad experience. The thing that pissed me off was that Richard Berotnes name was plastered all over my comp cards. I didn't think anything of it a t first until a professional photographer pointed it it out. So not only did I overpay for bad comp cards. I unwillingly helped Bertone advertise.

I now have professional looking comp cards from a different person and am starting to get work. I actually worked with a photographer that cared about the final product and what I looked like in the finished product. Dont waste your money helping Bertone advertise his mediocre photography skills.

As I said before. YOU HAVE TO GET A LIFE!!
I'd give you my email or even my phone number to talk to you if I didn't think you wouldn't stock me! BUT I KNOW YOU WOULD, because I don't drink YOUR COOL AID!!
This web page you posted, HOW DO YOU KNOW THEY ALL CAME from KSSM and or John???? Or what they paid?? THAT"S MY POINT!! You guessing, at best! Just as I don't know.
And to the last poster... You can't tell any thing from a contact page web site. Or how the shoots look like after they touched up. THEY ARE PROOFS! But I forget we all all expects!!

YES SARA is my real name...
BTW were is my other post showing some work of his??? POST ONLY WHAT WILL KEEP YOU GOING>>>> HUMMM!

Ya I had my photos done by Richard as well. And I've gotten a ton of work. Name on my photos too! It's called a copy right. most photographers use them.

Anonymous said...

I have had several cards done by multiple photographers and not one set has the photographer name on it. Its one thing, if you get a free photo shoot its another if you are paying for them.

Regardless of the fact you should actually pay 50% on the initial booking and the other 50% when you approve the pictures used for the cards.

Bad photographers charge everything up front because they know there work is crap and once they have your money you have no choice but to accept their work.

Who the hell is this Sara. Talking about people needing to get a life look in the mirror. You keep posting, if you had a life you wouldn't be reading. This blog has opened my eyes and it seems other peoples as well.

I'm thankful for the opinions posted here. I went to an open call with John Wood and Karon Shea. This blog saved me 795.00 dollars.

Because of this blog I was able to ask better questions to prospective agencies. Sara I hate to say it but ask anyone who has had experiences with these people, they don't have good reputations, no matter what they say. Actually I have spoken to various models and actors that have also had experience with Richard, john and Karon and they are known throughout central New England as a big joke. Why doesn't Richard work with The Miss Mass Pageant anymore?

You should call them and ask for a reference on him.

I'm a photographer in Boston, I know Richard and he does fine work, Now you may not like his style or you may not like mine. That's why YOU PICK the person you shoot with. Now to the copy rights and name on photos. Evey one I know does that. Only people who don't want there name out there DON"T.
As to payment.. NO WAY. I get the dollars up front if it's a testing. I have had lots of people skip out after there shoot and not pay. So again if I don't know you or if your not a client that come in before, YOU PAY UP FRONT. If want to be shot for modeling or acting come on in. I don't know if you'll make it or not or if your to tall, short, fat, thin, whatever. We take pictures, if you want to shoot and pay my price I charge I'll shoot you. But there is oh well I paid half and now I don't feel I have what it takes or whatever reason they/you come up with not to pay there bill. I know I don't need the practice and either does Richard.
This guy here is busting on him and Karen Shea and this guy John Wood because he felt that it was not good for him. Ok so you didn't work with them. Go look for someone you like. But then he ask for others chime in.
Please never show up at up studio and talk bad about anyone that you never shoot with. I'd ask you to leave..

Sara is BACK, Ya I have time because i"m off from school, if you must know.
"Why doesn't Richard work with The Miss Mass Pageant anymore? "
Well you tell me what story you think you know?? I know because I asked him and also have a friend min that world. BUT I'm sure you'll come up up with some crap.
I read what was said here and I looked into it. AGAIN SOME BS ABOUT OPINIONS. Truth and way not call him or the USA folks. Pageants make money from everyone, the girls, the dress makers, photographers, etc. The price of doing business with them got to costly. PERIOD, not some BS about his reputation.AGAIN if so where is the proof.REAL FACTS, not an opinion.
YA I sticky up for him, because LIES about people are wrong!!! Opinions whatever!!
So this is the slippery slop that the blogger plays. You don't like them ..FINE we get it, but LIES and OPINIONS are BS that try to hurt someone is wrong.
So you think there are over priced ok but people do what they want. I still haven't heard someone say they had a gun to there head and made them pay...
You buy a car for X and I pay XX for the same car. oh well.
But I don't go out with malice to hurt that place I just don't use them again.
So PLEASE ONLY POST THE FACTS about people lives. If you have a police report about the lies prove it. There is not I looked that how I can state what I say, not just some made up opinion.

I'm not sure if anyone else reading this blog is thinking the same thing as me or not. Doesn;t this Sara seemd awfully upset for soemone just reading the blog and offering up an opinion.
I have put my 2 cents worth in her twice before I know that though I went to Karons and feel scammed I did not get all hot and bothered.
I have this sneaking suspicion that Sara is actually Richard Bertone. Or someone REALLY close to him. I also notice everytime Sara says to call, email or leave a link, she never actually does. Half of what this person says doesn't even make sense.
Enough about that. So where is Richards studio in NY because I would love to stop by and see it. I am in NY regularly for castings. He does not have an actual studio there, I can almost guarantee that.
I have had quite a few sets of comp crads over the years from different photographers and none put their name on it except Richard. I have seen many others from people at castings etc. and theres do not advertise the photographer either. With no webiste, etc. I suppose he needs a way to drum up some business right?
LOL

annoyed said...

You don’t get it! The one photo you see is the first shot of the whole shoot! Who takes the best photos of their first shoot the first time? You need a PW to view all 800 photos. Of course his name will be on all proofs, any photog does that! HELLO copy right!!! The photos on the comp card will not have his name. The photos in the album also are not edited. Your dumb as rocks and you don’t know how things roll in the industry, so all you "wana be's" need to keep to yourself.

Anonymous said...

not to mention the first photo taken is to test the lighting, so basically you just stand there untill he says your ready

Anonymous said...

Well, now some one or the same person chiming in?? No I shoot with him, I had a friend that got the same treatment as Richard is getting. A lot of BS on the net, being said. I don't like it so that's way I post in his favor.I all ready told you he does care about it, because no has come to him about any of this. Now I have twice posted some info that the blogger will not post!!! Just as I think this will not go and get posted As well. The one way opinions well all most are witch hunt. The blogger NEVER SHOOT WITH RICHARD! So what's his almost daily harassment of Richard about?? Ya he said he talk to him and said BA BA BA. Never if it was true... WHO CARES!! You Made your feelings more than clear. MOVE ON! Again BLOGGER I sent you a few links to look at but NO.. You will not post either of them. And to the last post, LOOK Richard up CALL HIM (I"LL SAY IT AGAIN) his number is on the links of the photos you all looked at. Website ya that a deal maker?? LOOK AT SOME OF THE real big guys THEY DON'T HAVE SITES.. no THERE ARE SITES for them, but they don't run them. So you'll say bu there is a website. AGAIN WHO CARES! Did you know that the BIGGEST AGENTICY in BOSTON does have a website???
SARA
PS I would love you all to email me or call, but it is proven that this BLOGGER is not RIGHT!

The Renegade Blogger said...

HELLO SARAH I HAVE ASKED YOU REPEATEDLY TO SEND ME LINKS TO RICHARDS PICTURES. YOU HAVE NOT, I WILL ASK YOU AGAIN FOR THE LINKS SO I CAN POST THEM. YOU NEVER SENT ME ANY LINKS. SO I CANT POST WHAT YOU DIDN'T SEND. I HAVE POSTED EVERYTHING THAT YOU HAVE SENT. YOU TELL ME TO GET MY FACTS STRAIGHT YOU SHOULD AS WELL.

The Renegade Blogger said...

All I did was present 2 links that someone sent me in regards to pics taken by Richard Bertone. They wanted us to check them out so I did and when these things get posted I'm perceived to be the bad guy. I have been more than fair posting both sides of the story. Unfortunately there is more bad than good out there about John, Karon, and Richard!

Anonymous said...

I had my comp cards done a few months ago by Richard, and the ones I received, the actual cards have his name clearly printed on the bottom of them.

I wonder if Sara is retarded or just plain illiterate. It seems that all you do is complain about what is not posted; if that is the case then what are all these posting with your name attached to them. I have read every single posting that has been posted and it seems that more than just the blogger have low opinions on these people. If you don't want to believe what is written here don't

Ok...clearly some of you are extremely angry as evidenced by the fact that you have gone out of your way to create a website/ "blog" that is slanderous in nature. Modeling/ acting is a competitive industry and it is important to do your research and to be happy and confident with whom you choose to work with…that is your choice. It is standard to invest a certain amount of time and money to get started in the business. Your key to success is your image. And, in order to have strong images you need to go to a professional photographer. And, as the saying goes “you get what you pay for”. If you are serious about modeling/acting and truly believe that you are focused on it enough to put lots of time, hard work, and energy into it; then why is it such an issue to spend a reasonable amount of money initially in order to potentially get paying jobs? I am signed with the best agency in Boston and it is true, as one blog noted previously, that there is no website. It is also true and accurate that many excellent photographers do not have and/or need websites. I have known and worked with Richard Bertone for over 8 years and I have nothing but great things to say about him and his work. It pains me that someone who has never even met Richard or participated in a photoshoot with him would go to such great lengths to commit libel against him or his work. It also dismays me that people would post links connecting the general public to Richard’s private client photo base. As stated previously, those photos are un-retouched and they display one small image on the front. That site is private, password protected, so that his clients only may log in to view their photos from a shoot then pick out the best for editing. Only after that, would an image be considered “complete”…so you may not judge his work based on what you are viewing from that link, which in all due respect, should not be open to the general public in the first place. To call his work “like a high school student’s” just makes me laugh because Richard has done a lot of work for very high scale clients. If you don’t like what you see – perhaps you need to hit gym or do something different with look. And, remember that as you gain experience modeling your images will continue to get better overtime. It is true that there are many untalented Photographers out there pretending to be something that they aren’t; but Richard Bertone does not fall into this category whatsoever. Rather creating negative energy perhaps your time would be better spent working on your goal to become a great model/ actor…if that is really your goal. Perhaps you should go to another agency to find a better fit for you and do some more research to find a photographer who you want to shoot with to get started.

People are ANGRY BECAUSE THEY FEEL THEY HAVE GOTTEN RIPPED OFF. THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THE CIRCLE OF 3 HAD A VERY PROFITABLE LITTLE VENTURE GOING. I HAVE REPEATEDLY ASKED FOR BOTH GOOD AND BAD ON THE SUBJECT. PEOPLE NOW HAVE A SOUNDING BOARD. THAT BEING SAID I HOPE NO ONE HAS FORMULATED AN OPINION ON WEATHER OR NOT TO USE THE COMPANIES MENTIONED BASED SOLELY ON THIS BLOG. PEOPLE NEED TO MAKE UP THERE OWN MINDS. TRUTH BE TOLD IF RICHARD WAS AS GOOD AS YOU CLAIM, THERE WOULD BE A HECK OF ALOT MORE INFORMATION ON HIM ON THE WEB. THE FACT IS THAT THERE IS NOT.

Anonymous said...

Hey BLOGGER, WOW as I read threw your blog I see you say or post statements that you know the dollar break down of these three? The FACT BE TOLD, YOU DON'T! So STOP that side of your BS. I worked for him for five years, here in the Boston area and in NYC,before doing my own thing. So yes I know the prices of what he charge, made and spent. You are so off. But as I read over your blog I see you THINK YOU ARE ALL KNOWING!

So if I look for you on the web would I find you?
Some photographers don't need to be in that spot light, just as some mangers of talent. You just don't see them out there. NO NEED. They report and answer to only the clients they pay them. Why do you think you would see anything on anyone on the net unless they put out there.Clients pay for a job to be done , not for them to post who did what.
If you come in for a testing you'd see work that the studio has done. You can always check out his MYSPACE page. The whole world is using is on MYSPACE for all types of work. And for the testing side of the studio, that is all that is need. Now you may not like that, but I'm sure Richard does not care really on what you think he should have and do at his studio. Or if you like his work.
As I see it, if you did shoot with him and had a problem and didn't first contact Richard? Why would you just blog on it instead of calling to get things set right? None of you I see said you call Richard, At lease I didn't see anyone say they contacted him about it. So really you don't have a leg to stand on! You should first call and talk about things before shooting your mouth off. I know every shoot doesn't work out, but I also know Richard has always fixed any issues that have every came up at his studio.

REALLY BECAUSE I HAVE TALKED TO SEVERAL PEOPLE THAT SAY OTHERWISE, AND ACTUALLY THIS SITE WAS FORMED FROM THE FACT THAT THEY ALL TRIED TO SCAM ME AND A FRIEND OF MINE. I WANTED TO LET EVERYONE ELSE KNOW WHAT THEY ATTEMPTED TO DO AND WARN PEOPLE BEFORE THEY SPEND ANY HARD EARNED MONEY. AMAZINGLY I WAS NOT ALONE, THIS SCAM THAT JOHN, KARON AND YES RICHARD WERE PART OF MADE THEM A LOT OF MONEY. SO YOUR ENTITLED TO YOUR OPINION, AND WE ARE ENTITLED TO OURS. TRUTH BE TOLD THIS IS JUST A SITE FOR PEOPLE TO SPEAK FREELY BOTH GOOD AND BAD. YOUR RIGHT THERE ARE ALOT OF AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHERS OUT THERE, IN MY OPINION RICHARD IS NOT ONE OF THEM, BUT AGAIN YOU ARE ENTITLED TO YOUR OPINION AND I AM ENTITLED TO MINE. ACTUALLY THIS BLOG IS A CULMINATION OF MANY POSTERS NOT JUST ME I JUST STARTED IT. FYI I HAVE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THESE 3 THAN I HAVE ACTUIALLY POSTED, SO YOU DONT REALLY KNOW WHAT I KNOW. I HAVE EMAILS FROM PEOPLE WHO KNOW THESE 3 QUITE WELL AS THE INFORMATION THEY HAVE PROVIDED COULD ONLY BE FROM THEIR INNER CIRCLES ALSO i AM POSTING YOUR POST BUT SINCE YOU REMAINED ANONYMOUS I CANT PROVE WHAT YOU ARE SAYING IS TRUE EITHER, AS FAR AS I KNOW THIS MIGHT BE JOHN OR RICHARD, YOU SAY EVERYTHING I HAVE POSTED IS BULL SHIT WELL SINCE I CANT PROVE WHAT YOU ARE SAYING EITHER, I GUESS WE CAN CALL THAT BULLSHIT ALSO. HAVE A GREAT DAY AND KEEP READING

look it all depends on the model. If you don't have what it takes it wont come out in the pictures. Don't matter who is shooting you. On top of that the people on that link don't even look like models so maybe they just wanted to get some pp done. This hole blog is kinda gay. so you did't like what you got out of it. It happend's. that's called life. your not gonna like everything that comes your way.
