How To Start Your Career as a Child Model
Although a career as a teen model can offer the best work and glamorous settings. If you are interested in giving it a try, be prepared to work hard, stay focused and avoid taking rejection too personally. Confidence, a healthy attitude and supportive parents are crucial when launching a teen modelling career. If you think your child has what it takes to make it in the glamorous world of Kids Modelling, we've put together a guide to help you get your little one on the right track for catwalk domination.
A good place to start is to get a recommendation on which Modelling Agency to go with, by asking around for friends or colleagues who might already have a child in an agency. Make sure you understand the process of applying and the total cost of joining. Some agencies will say that they do not charge but then say that you will need to have professional pictures were taken that can cost well.
Initially, you will only need to send in a couple of colour snaps of your child, they do not need to be professional photos.Natural photos work best and do make sure they are clear and in focus and that at least one of them shows their face and features clearly.
The Modelling Agencies will decide whether they use those images or ask you to bring your child along for a photoshoot. Always ask if there is a cost involved and how often you will need to update the photographs.Depending on your child’s age, it should be on average: babies: every six months until they are walking; young children: every 12-18 months; older children: every 24 months, unless you see a big change in them within that period of time.
A Modellling portfolio is just a bound book with plastic sleeve pages for displaying photographs. Insert several of the best photos from the photo shoot into the portfolio. If you are uncertain about a picture, don’t include it. It's better to have a few great shots instead of dozens of mediocre ones. As your career moves forward, you will add photographs from modelling jobs to your portfolio for competing in Modelling Contest.
Once you’ve got some professional shots and digi’s, the submission process begins. You can go about this in two ways – open calls or direct submission.
Some of the larger agencies have open calls where they open their doors to meet with aspiring models during Modelling Competition certain hours of a particular day. Agencies that have this option will have it clearly stated on their website. Direct submissions are done via email which can be found on the agency websites. Remember to include the best images from your portfolio as well as designs and all your stats.
