Child Models And Child Modeling Has Really Come Of Age

Author: Mark Lavel

Child modeling has become quite popular these days especially because it is easier for children to reach out to the global consumer. As a result, more and more companies and brands have started to employ child models and some of the companies are using young models as their brand ambassador. This has actually in a way opened a parallel industry that caters only to the requirement of child modeling. Interesting as it is to note that this is fast becoming a lucrative industry; it is a known fact that child modeling is the first step towards a rewarding modeling career.
There are pros and cons of starting early. One of the pros of starting early is that it is easier for young models to adapt to different situations and requirements with ease. For example: if a modeling assignment requires child models to shoot in different locations and pose as different characters – they will be more eager to do it vis-à-vis older models. This is because of the fact that children by nature are inquisitive and eager to learn. The good thing is that this inquisitiveness if channelized properly can take the child model places. This is where the parents come in.
It is extremely necessary that the parents participate in the enthusiasm of their children. Young models can be prone to home sickness and even throw tantrums on location but the reassuring presence of parents will ensure that the shoot goes on smoothly. The second most important point is that the younger the models are the better exposure they will get. In modeling experience and exposure really matters. Normally, the period from 10 to 17 years is the right time for child modeling. Child models can start off even at age 4 or 5 and the good thing is that by the time they are in their teens, they would have amassed a lot of experience and got enough exposure to help them carve their career. By the time these models hit their early 20’s they will be well established.

So the best place to begin is over the internet. But first thing first, child models need to have their portfolio. There are several important areas that you need to focus on while creating your child’s portfolio so that they are considered for modeling assignments and auditions. Young models never know what is good for them and how they need to plan their life. Hence, it is the responsibility of the parents to guide them through this.  Most child modeling recruiters as well as modeling agencies will select only those young models that have strong extra-curricular background, who are smart, who have charisma, and of course not to mention a great overall personality. It is important that child models are not just cute and smart but they have to be expressive and talented as well. So when you are working on your child’s portfolio, you need to ensure that you promote all the salient points of your child and don’t forget to include as many photographs as possible.
Are you looking for work for young models? You can now upload child or young model profiles and also find job postings for child models.

More Modeling Tips For Teenagers | Teen Models

By Charlene Hinds
So you want to become a teen model? Well you have come to the right place, to find out a bit on what you need to know.

Despite the stereotypes, breaking into the modeling industry requires a lot more than beauty. It requires dedication, smarts and perseverance. First and foremost is to realize how difficult it is to become a top fashion model in such a competitive industry. Millions chase the dream but only a handful actually make it as top fashion models. However, many people succeed as part-time models and enjoy an exhilarating life of being paid for fashion, tv, movies and much more...

There are several different types and levels of modeling, and if your expectations are realistic, you Needn't feel discouraged. There are different kinds of models such as child models, tall runway models seen in fashion shows, plus size models who are a size 10 and above and body parts models whose hands you might see in a diamond ring ad on a billboard.

The list goes on but the first thing you have to do is look at yourself, be honest and see where you qualify. Look at models in magazines like Vogue & Elle and see how you measure up.

Starting a Modeling Career.

Important Tips:

Yes, modeling is all about the right look but the what really determines whether a model is successful or not is what we call The 4 D's - Desire, Dedication, Determination and Devotion. There is so much competition in the business that every job usually has hundreds of applicants and models that show professionalism and reliability usually end up on top.

Here are a few tips you should remember.

1. Always show up early unlike a regular job as a model your job will most likely be in a different location each time, so always be prepared for traffic, getting lost or looking for parking.

2. Always be available the last thing you want as a model is to miss out on job opportunities because you missed a call, so always make sure you return calls promptly and that your agency and clients have your cell phone number.

3. Always be Professional most people think modeling is a laid back and easy going profession when is actually the opposite. From the moment you show up, pay attention, act professional so people will enjoy working with you, and offer you more work.If you are going on an audition or casting call do not bring friends, children or parents (unless you are under 18) because most agencies will not accept it. However for safety reasons, if you are unsure about the company or person you are going to see, we advise you bring someone.

4. Be Yourself always be yourself, relax and be comfortable because it all ends up showing when you get in front of the camera. Being yourself also means being honest when asked questions or asked for your opinions. Do not be intimidated or pressured into doing something you are not comfortable with, for example if you are not comfortable with nudes or implied nudity do not do it to please the photographer, simply say no.

The 4 Steps to Starting Modeling:

Step 1. Do Some Reading we highly recommend that you do some research by reading about the modeling industry so you can be aware of the way the industry works, the scams and also to better prepare yourself to get involved

Step 2. Build a Portfolio you are going to need some professional photos other than the snap shots you have to build your portfolio. Do not spend hundreds of dollars on this, instead ask photographers for test shoots, get involved in modeling shows, or volunteer to model for a college photo class. Collect all the photos you get and put at least ten good shots into a nice portfolio binder, now you have something to show agencies and clients. The more photo shoots you do the more experience you get.

Remember the modeling business is very competitive and there will always be someone who is taller, prettier and in better shape than you, so keep a positive attitude, learn to deal with rejection and you will do just fine.Also remember you cannot buy a modeling career so beware of people who will try to sell you your dream with expensive portfolios, photo shoots and pointless modeling classes.

It is obvious that you are determined to become a model because you have read this far and that is a great sign. Remember it is all about your attitude, knowing your role and exposing yourself to the right people.

Please remember that no single person can claim to be an expert on the modeling industry, it is way too dynamic therefore some people may have different views or opinions on our information. We have simply gathered this information from different reliable sources and our own personal experience to benefit you.

So good luck with your dreams of becoming a teen model.
