People may well have commented you have a ‘Star’ quality and you dream of being famous – well this is all possible with an agent and pure determination from you!
To achieve this you may have to start smaller than your dreams, but everyone who is famous has had to start somewhere, so who knows where you dreams may take you.
Whatever talent you have, whether you love singing, long to be a dancer or aspire to be an actor then take the plunge and follow your dreams with Talent Management by your side.
Our experience and expertise can help with matching performers to clients through the many number of industry contacts we have built up over nearly 20 years in the business. Whilst there is no magic formula on how to be a star, believing in yourself is a must and a helping hand goes a long way. Talent Management can give advice and guidance every step of the way.
What type of work can I expect when signed by a commercial modelling/talent agency like Talent Management/Models Direct?
In the commercial modelling industry there are several different types of work you could be considered for. At Talent Management we represent models with lots of other talents too, so can provide models to a varied selection of clients across the UK for lots of different types of work.
Below are some of the areas of the modelling industry we supply models to and the clients we have worked with:
Are you convinced your baby has modelling potential?
It can be a fun way to fill the first year and spend time with your new-born.
Agencies are always looking for newborns as they have a short modelling span, they are always on the look out for the next fresh face!
At Talent Management we often see parents applying for their babies when they are around 6 months old as they have started to develop a personality and the parents are feeling more comfortable about taking on new challenges with their baby. They are also able to sit around this age and respond to people, which works well for photo-shoots and filming!
When signing your child up with a talent agency like Talent Management with Models Direct it’s every parents dream to hear their child has been successfully selected to star in a large feature film that will be shown in cinemas nationwide! That’s just the call our Assignments Manager, Molly had to make to 8 parents of our selected child models!
The production company were also wanting 20-30 adult extras for the film, they would be acting as ship passengers as the film was set in the 1920’s. They requested a mixture of age, looks and ethnicity and the filming was to take place in Southampton – the team at Models Direct set to work on sourcing the right people straight away!
The assignments team at Talent Management spend their days speaking to clients, new and regular, understanding their model requirements for their next photo-shoot, commercial, campaign or promotional event – it’s essential our booking agents have a good relationship with the clients we work with so they can ensure they introduce the client to the talent they need!
Sometimes this process can be lengthy, due to the client’s brief or contacting multiple models who may have been shortlisted for the job and we need to know their availability. The nature of the industry is fast, so generally there is not alot of time to find the perfect person for the assignment in question, so our bookers at Talent Management work quickly and often under pressure!!
Being a Booking Agent is very exciting and it is so pleasing when you have matched the perfect model(s) to client, equaling happy models and happy clients!
The Talent and Modelling industry can be a tricky world to break into, you have a talent, but how do you get seen?? The best way to get yourself noticed by clients is to have an agent to promote you, at Talent Management we have a variety of talented artists on our books, from singers, dancers, actors, voice overs and musicians, all very gifted and incredibly determined to succeed in the industry!
It’s always useful to hear other peoples experiences of the industry and their thoughts on being represented by Talent Management, check out this video of one of our models Lucy Scarfe who has successfully secured several acting and modelling roles through Talent management!!
There are a few best practices and bad behaviours that you and your mini-model should start to learn as you pursue the child and baby modeling world. Simply follow these dos and don’ts below to help your child succeed as a baby model.
DO behave well and be considerate. Remember that casting calls, auditions, and bookings can be very stressful on all the staff and everyone at work. If you need to make a phone call or your child needs to let loose some energy, be sure to step out. You don’t want to be recognised as a parent who is either insensitive or hard to deal with.
DO emphasise the importance of following the directions of the casting director/agent, photographer, or staff, especially if your kid is a bit older. The more your tot can easily follow directions, the more they will be able to achieve in their career.
Baby modeling can be one of the best things you and your kid choose to pursue. The perks and benefits of becoming a child model are countless. No wonder the number of children wanting to be a model and signed by a talent agency is constantly increasing. Let’s take a look at below some of the benefits of baby modeling.
Fun and Exciting
Imagine the thrill of getting all dressed up, posing, and acting. Such enjoyable activities would likely be defined by your child as play, rather than work. This is what makes child modeling so rewarding. It can be a fun and pleasant experience for the entire family, especially once you see your little model on TV, in magazines, or advertising baby products.
It can be an exciting time stepping into the world of child and baby modelling jobs. For the uninitiated trying to navigate this new world, however, or even for experienced parents trying to work out how to best to secure the best parts whilst juggling the day to day demands of family life, it can often be a little bit overwhelming.
