    Child modelling agencies, anyone used any??

    I know everyone thinks their child is beautiful but my son really does shine in front of the camera and I thought I would give it a shot for some extra pennies for him. Obviously I know there are lots of dodgy companies out there and wondered if anyone has any experience of modelling children and can recommend any good places. Ideally midlands based.

    Have to agree - dont see why people do it - if there kid is cute they are cute but dont make a decision for them

    Because he genuinely enjoys having photos taken. We have had lost of photos taken as a family and he has never had a bad photo taken. He is 4 so it's not like I have decided that I have a beauitiful baby and want to show the world. It may earn us a few extra pounds to put in his bank account and maybe put towards a nice treat as a family. I'm not expecting to earn much from it and I'm not a pushy parent, I just think he has a really photogenic face and is a natural in front of the camera. By the way I have 2 other children and wouldn't think about it for them as they are not that way inclined.

    This is wrong and you're sick.



    ..and you base this on???

    By the way if you look at the post I haven't asked for peoples opinions I am asking if anyone has any good or bad experiences of companies. I'm not doing anything illegal or harmful to my children, so please, if you are going to be rude post elsewhere!!!

    LOL :-D but not my reasons for doing so!!!

    Do you write to catalogue's and magazines who use childrens pictures and say this? All the woman is doing is trying to get a bit of cash for her kid, she's doing the decent thing and researching companies rather than go to first company she can find. I say well done to her!!

    In response to OP, cant help as never used one. My kids are cute, but arent keen on being photographed.

    Slightly dramatic if u ask me:roll:

    I can undersand why people would want to do it to be honest, to show off their kids....it's called being proud! And of course sorting a nest egg for the the childs future. Although, I do also wonder if it's a good idea to put ur kids to work at such a young age lol:w00t:

    we all think out children are beautiful, but if you really believe he has what it takes then research online and send some photos off

    dont go with models direct

    If your baby needed to lose 10lbs in a week to get the cover, could it manage it?

    What about animals? Could it ride on the back of a small lion?

    i hope you have a thick skin .

    My little boy and girl model... the only child model agancys i would suggest would be elizabeth smith and norrie carr ... both have been around for a long time and both one of the 1st child agency .

    Edit : my children have done alot of well known brands. My little girl is picked more than my little boy but i think its because she is a very pretty little girl with lots of blonde curly hair and her eyes are very unusual like jasmines from alladin like almonds but slanty lol

    Two,three years ago, my son ( now 6 year old) was spotted by agent in the airport and arranged for free photo take, but the day before the appointment, my son trapped over and had three stitches on his face.:-(
    another time, when we went to a photo shop for family photo, the owner offer free service for uses of my son's photo.
    sorry, i can't find the contact Number now.

    The only thing ive heard about it is that a lot of agencies want you to be based in london and not to trust any agencies that ask for money

    Thanks everyone for the positive feedback. Some people are so negative. I do not intend to pay a penny to anyone but I will have a look around and send some photos. I will try elizabeth smith and norrie carr and see how I get on. If he gets £50 out of it it will be a bonus if not then so be it.
    Thanks again

    This is not the same thing - but is in a way ......................when my son was 8 we visited a local radio station. cut a long story short...............they let my son have a go in the training room ............told me that he was very good and naturally chatty and would I like him to go 'live' on air for a little bit with the current DJ............mum said yes..

    Fate played a hand that day as they were on the look out for a young child around age 8 to start doing a childrens radio show every saturday.................well my son has been doing this show on his own every saturday and is just fantastic!!! He was even on BBC Newsround as Scotlands youngest DJ ...................

    So OP it is all down to being proud of your children and showing them off - but without exploiting them. My son is a wee celebrity where we live as been in papers loads and tv few times too - and he is only ten now.

    good luck with what you decide!

    My girl has been with Rascals for 3 years now has done lots of work they are a genuine agency it's not exploiting she loves it and gets money in her savings account for when she's older.You don't have to go to lots of castings just do what they are happy with,they love seeing themselves on tv or on posters in store it has no negative affect as long as it's your childs choice not just for yourself,also most agencys charge a yearly fee and unless you can do your own professional photos you pay for these as well but usually they make back lots more than paid out.
