MODEL LIFE

Shooting model portfolios was never part of our plan but now they are a main crux of our business, and we love them

Our editorial style was always intended to set FayAndrea apart from other child photographers, I guess we just never anticipated to attract some of the UK’s leading child models and agencies who we have collaborated with on their model portfolio updates.

Since launching our editorial portfolios, we have seen many of our clients signed by agencies, as well as relaunch stagnant careers. Our parents have shared great news with us on advertorials and editorials their children have landed from their FayAndrea images, names of which have included Gucci, Childrensalon, Kenzo, Burberry, John Lewis, Zara Kids, The White Company, Mothercare, Marks & Spencer, Babiekins Magazine and Next.

Does my child have what it takes?

We can give our opinion on how photogenic we believe your child is but we cannot promise a model agency will sign them. Every agency has a recruitment-criteria and this may vary from time-to-time based on the industry requirements and the type of children getting work.

For child modelling it’s important to consider far more than just whether your child is classically good-looking when determining whether they can model. Personality also plays a crucial part in their appeal so it’s important they appear likeable, confident and co-operative.

Be aware child modelling takes a lot of time and dedication. Once you are signed, agencies will expect you to be available for castings at the drop of a hat, which can mean long days, expensive travel with no guarantee of a booking at the other end. Discuss this prospect with your child and ensure you are both happy before pursuing the opportunity.

‘What should I look for when choosing an agency?’

Always research the agency thoroughly by using the Internet to search forums and social networking posts to read parents feedback and experiences.

Bear in mind the amount of children within your child’s age bracket currently on the agency’s books, and take note of the types of jobs they are getting their models. Quantity is really important because there are only a certain amount of jobs to go around, so the more children, the more internal competition your child will have.

Child modelling agencies can charge a fee to list models on their books, however, it’s important to evaluate the cost vs income reimbursement.
