Have you just signed your child model up to an agency, or thinking about doing so? As a mum of a child model, I know how exciting it can be to get a call from the agency, whether it’s to be accepted or for a casting call. Thousands of children apply and only a small percentage will be accepted and even fewer will land that dream job. Either way you know it’s a competitive world, but when things come together as the rewards are so satisfying.
Give your child a head start.
Some agencies will do a photoshoot every year, and some will require you to provide them with images that will be used to send out to casting directors. Either way throughout the year they will expect you to update them with new images, updated measurements and new skills etc. Beau photography can give your child the best opportunity to send in some amazing shots and also give your child some invaluable studio time that will hopefully pay off when they get in front of the camera for a real Job!!
Let your child's personality shine through the lens
It’s even more exciting when the jobs start coming in and from my experience they love a child that is at ease in front of the camera. Visit us at Beau Photography to gain some great experience in a studio setting and walk away with some wonderful images to send to your agent.
Tips for the shoot.
The images should be all about them, no pattern clothes or logos, good solid colours, age appropriate. It should reflect your who your child is, if your child has a particular skill, it’s a good idea to take some shots in their chosen outfit. These images are also great on the living room wall or to send to the grandparents.
