Being a Child Model
- A parent or legal guardian must accompany any child model aged 21 or under.
- No child model under the age of 18 will be offered a studio booking unless we have a contact number and email address for their parent.
- In the event that an underage aspiring model turns up without a parent or guardian, we are obliged to inform the parent of the situation and will contact them to re-schedule the appointment.
All parents must be briefed on the style and content of any shoot prior to the shoot taking place. We understand that helping your child break into the modelling world can feel like a treacherous task. Be assured our team has a multitude of experience in the fashion & modelling industry. We are here to ensure that your child feels comfortable in this new environment and most importantly, we ensure you understand all aspects of modelling.
Below are some of the more popular questions parents of a potential child model ask. However, we welcome any further questions or concerns you may wish to ask prior to your child taking their first steps into a modelling career.
Another topic that comes up a lot in the enquiries, is about travel. For paid modelling work travel expenses tend to be covered by either the client or the modelling agency that you are with. However, this isn’t a guarantee, for example film and TV extras very rarely pay for travel expenses. Before you end up booking a job, the details covering travel expenses will always be given to you. Some clients work by booking your travelling arrangements and telling you where you need to be and at what time, whereas some simply ask for receipts of travel and refund that. If travelling by car, the most common practice is to be paid a certain rate per mile.
