Getting your kid hired as a model is not as easy as it seems even if your child is a model. And turning your kid to be a model is another tough job. Modeling is harder – it’s not like a cake to eat and walk away rather it’s a demanding job with tight schedules dealing with the people associated with this field. Be prepared for rejection and deal with the impatient art directors, etc. If your kid happens to be much patient one, easy going and appears to be amiable with the people, then just sit and enjoy the kid’s super modeling career. What is required to get your kid hired as a model is mentioned as under:
Remember if you want to get your kid noticed in the modeling industry and want to bring much work for him/her then you have to live in the area or near the area rich for modeling works like New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami.
Make contacts with the famous modeling agencies. And you can even check with the web and yellow pages directories for the modeling jobs. Make contact with the authorities with a letter carrying your interest for your kid’s modeling. With the letter, affix few pictures of the kid (must be of full body and head shots). Do mention your contact information along with kid’s name, age, eye color and tresses color, clothing size and size of the shoes at the back of the each photo of your child. Do not use ball point rather use something else to write the details.
Keep visiting those modeling agencies which have offers for your kids. Show them up the details instantly and have through meetings with them.
When contracts are made, do read them carefully and understand each point. Normally these legal papers are laced with complicated languages, so you may consult with a lawyer also. Carefully understand then sign it off.
After you sign up, agencies will begin sending you and the kid with the people having works.
Agents or agencies normally charge 20% commission on each work.
Get prepared for the rejections as well and if your kid is big enough to understand the rejection, get him or her prepared for this situation as well.
