Child Modelling

Child models tend to be between two and twelve years of age and it is much more widely accepted in this area of the industry that a diverse selection is desired. The requirements that you would find in other areas of modelling like weight, size and height are much more variable and what agencies look for above all else is a confident, happy and compatible child with an attractive look.

The governing of child modelling is obviously and rightly more strict than other areas of modelling, the key objective being to ensure that no detriment is caused to the child’s educational development and to safeguard against exploitation. In order for a child under sixteen to work, the parent or guardian must hold a license and abide by the strict guidelines orientating around length and number of working hours. In addition to this, all reputable model agencies will insist that a biological parent or legal guardian is present at any shoot.

We do also believe it important that as the child’s parent or guardian you take full responsibility as their manager. At the end of the day no one is going to be more reliable than you (the parent/guardian) in assuring your child’s best interests are at the forefront of all decisions and the journey of modelling career can lead to a flourishing in the relationship that you and your child share.

In recent years there has been a measurable surge in the marketability of children’s clothing and many major fashion houses have branched out into this profitable enterprise.
