If I can jump in here for a minute.
I'd like to say that I have been happily represented by Marisa for going on 6 months now.
I'd like to address some of the complaints made against her.
1: "Marisa pushes you to use HER photographers."
As we all know, it is VERY difficult to get acting work anywhere, let alone in Phoenix Arizona. However, in order to get a career in acting or modeling, you must first find the right head-shot. Your head-shot is your career. It is what gets you work, what pays your bills, your head-shot is your EVERYTHING. I have PERSONALLY SEEN Marisa accept head-shots from other clients that were NOT taken by her photographer.
If you come into her office with a head-shot that is NOT industry standard, she will turn you in the direction of somebody that SHE KNOWS CAN DO THE JOB RIGHT. Marisa does not collect on this, head-shots are expensive, and they are part of the process, she will not turn you down if you have INDUSTRY STANDARD head-shots from another photographer.
2: "Marisa says the same things to everyone."
I would like to go out on a limb here and say that Marisa was NOT going to accept me as a client at first. I consider myself lucky that I was even able to make it down for an appointment, and after I showed her what I was capable of as a performer, she considered me. I've seen her turn people down, and almost experienced it first-hand.
3: "Marisa doesn't get me any work."
Go to LA. Go to New York. If you want calls every week, Phoenix probably isn't the place for you.
A word of advice from someone trying to help:
Don't listen to the people that talk negatively about people in the business. There is no sure-fire way to fame, fortune or the silver screen. Every route is different, and people that post negative things online about representation will most likely have a poor chance of ever getting represented by anyone.
