We are setting up a childrens fashion clothing company,thinking of launching around March.
We have a budget in mind for our children models but the agencies are charging extortionate amount for a day of modelling.
So i was hoping if there are any mums out there who would like to model their child/s in our clothing ranging between 8 to 14 years of age boys or girls. Images to be displayed on our website.
For further inquiries please do not hesitate to contact me on
Many thanks
Adam & Louisa

Hi everyone, I give my experience of Planet of Modelling. They are Scammers. I paid £ 485, did some photo shoot. Went to collect my child's photos, then again I was asked further £185. I refused. Then was told not worry she still will get a job. They lied to my child. After that they never called me and when I called them, they never answered the phone. Left messages but that never helped. I asked wht there ni contract, they said, we don't do contract with children. When I asked her name, she gave me a false name and never showed any ID who she was. Avoid at all cost. They Scammers. If they deny, I have evidence to show you. Save yourselves from those money hungry and prepared to even lie to a child.

Hi, does anyone know if Top Talent Agency (TTA Kids) is better than Bizzykidz for acting roles? My 4 and 6 year olds have an audition with TTA Kids next Tuesday 14th Feb in Covent Garden but I have now realised that Bizzykidz is much closer to home with their Rochester Kent office and I am wondering if this will be a better option? My 4 year old is particularly interested in performing and her theatre school told us to consider applying for TTA Kids and we have the audition (couldn't attend back in August last year). Any advice welcome please as I am a brand new poster....!

Hi Michelle, I was in a similar position, and after seeking advice, read reviews etc. Orange Models came recommended through school parents, so I went on their and found great information, advice, and honest reviews from their clients. Good luck, hope this helps, Jess x

Kalayarasy Thu 21-Apr-16 11:23:30 dd is 3 years old...I applied few agencies...I got reply from kitsch agency as follows..

Thank you for applying for, we would love to have them on our books.

The next step would be to invite you along to our photo shoot, It is a 1 year contract with a set-up cost of £50 for the creation and maintenance of the online publication and £25 for the shoot with the Agency photographer, where you will meet Sharon or Sam.

Once we take the photos we then upload 5 of them and build your child's page, this is what we send to our clients, we will make any changes throughout the year for height and any additions to experience.

Pls suggest me wat to do next...

I've come over all misty eyed and nostalgic reading this thread. grin

Baby models U.K. - don't waste your time and certainly don't waste your money. They are unprofessional, intimidating, smelly (literally), lying minimum wage photographers and lying salesmen trying to charge £400 for a few photos on a CD. If anyone's leaving positive feedback about them, it's probably them.

Me too Dexters. Trying to think what I was doing in September 2004. grin

Hi my child has been accepted for baby models uk is this a spam or....has anyone heard of this agency?

Chipster79 Wed 23-Mar-16 14:44:45

Just DON'T use Kids London! EVER! Completely conned us. £150 for a bunch of horrendous photos (really, really bad) and we've never heard anything since despite trying to contact them. They really built our hopes up and made it seem like our little girl would have lots of work. Just avoid them and go to a real agency.

Oh I do love an old child modelling thread that's constantly resurrected.

Hi my daughter has been accepted for tuesdays child im half and half though on what to do. Also applied for kids manchester so waiting if i hear anything just cant decide whether to go with tuesdays child or not as they have a one off fee of £150 anyone else know a good agency?

There are only a couple or decent agencies who actually get work for the kids on books-urban angels north and south are one who my friend uses
They don't make loads of cash but her child loves the dressing up element
You'll need to be very available and often at short notice
Your child has to genuinely love being comfortable by a camera and happy in self
They sniff an over keen parent at 20 paces wink
