There is a very common scam that is being solicited to actors right now. If you are contacted by anyone from DeDe Photography wanting to hire you for a catalog shoot, this is 100% a scam. Do not give them your information. They are also not in any way affiliated with Backstage.
Just as a note, anytime something seems too good to be true, it probably is. If someone is trying to pay you, upfront, for a photo shoot, when they have never met you, it is scam. Every time!
Also, if you ever have any questions about the legitimacy of a photographer’s site (when they are making an offer like this) I suggest your do a reverse image search in Google of the pictures on their site. I promise they will come up credited to someone else or as stock photography. The more you know.
