HOW TO BECOME A CHILD MODEL
We welcome applications by parents on behalf of their children. There are a surprising number of agencies out there that specialise in children, and an awful lot of work. There are of course no real restrictions on what a child can and can’t model as the key is not that the child is attractive but rather that they fit a certain look the creative team are after, and that they work well in front of the camera.
Getting a child into an agency is relatively easy, and probably the easiest of all categories. This is because agencies that specialise in kids need a huge volume of models to cover all the ages, types and geographic locations, and to also cover availability.
Jobs are almost always commercial so can range from clothing catalogues, to holiday brochures, to adverts for nappies or cornflakes.
Having a professional photo shoot with us is the best way to discover whether your child has what it takes to make it as a model. For child models, being able to open up in front of new people is important and being able to perform on demand is also key. If your child clams up when asked to smile in front of the camera then you should consider whether modelling is for them. You need to think about whether they have confidence on camera and whether they have the patience to sit through a long photo shoot.
There are laws regarding child modelling in the UK and you should be aware of them. For your child to work they will require a license and they will be limited to the amount of hours they can work. Parents or legal guardians legally have to accompany children to all shoots.
Child modelling can be very rewarding financially and can be a lot of fun. Model Agencies who specialize in children’s modelling can place the right child in huge campaigns for Television commercials, billboards, games and toys, magazines and posters.
