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!

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.
