Dd has been accepted by this agency, and a bit of googling seems to suggest they are good. However, a friend who regularly works on film sets says it's strange that they don't want professional shots and that casting agents won't look at home snaps, so she thinks it's a bit dodgy. I don't know what to think. Does anyone have any experience of Kids London?

I'm biased because my kids are with KL but I've nothing but praise for this agency.

They're generally considered one of the top 3 agencies in UK, so if they've accepted DD then take that as a compliment and go for it! My kids have done Vogue, Pepe Jeans, Junior, John Richmond etc through KL - all great jobs that mean great souvenirs for the future when they're older and giving me grief smile The woman who runs the company has a great eye for the right kids and keeps the numbers low so you're not competing with stupid numbers for the same job (unlike some agencies I could mention who charge a fortune for the privilege)

Good Luck!

Thanks! That's good to hear. I've sent off the form so now we just sit and wait I guess.

So what do Kids London show to casting agents then? I'm confused.

My DD is also with KL and has also had great work. They charged no upfront fees and the pay is great from the jobs. We're very happy with them and find them very easy to to communicate with, as it's mostly text messaging.

We didn't have professional pictures, but good quality snaps have been fine and she has got lots of jobs.

Are you going to be bumping every zombie thread about child modelling?

Sparklingbrook Fri 09-Oct-15 19:40:46

I wasn't even on MN when this thread started Auntie. grin

Superproudmum09 Fri 09-Oct-15 21:35:24

I'm new to this @Auntiestella, i joined this evening so try and be a little bit patient with newbies finding their way around!

Sparklingbrook Fri 09-Oct-15 21:38:05

If you really need to discuss child modelling maybe start a new thread? Not keep bumping zombie ones?

Superproudmum09 Sat 10-Oct-15 15:04:03

@Sparklingbrook was there any point to that comment other than to be bossy?

The title of the thread is about Kids London so whats wrong with bumping the thread if I am specifically talking about KL?

Sparklingbrook Sat 10-Oct-15 15:08:19

As the previous thread was deleted due to turning into a bunfight, it is probably best to let this one quietly fade away too.

Superproudmum09 Sat 10-Oct-15 15:14:26

Im not sure how to find the new ones, all i can find are old ones! I'm not very good at this...

Pipbin Sat 10-Oct-15 15:17:01

Start a new one. Honestly, here people would much rather you started a new thread about something that has been covered than bump an old one. It's different to other places in that respect.

StrawberrytallCake Sat 10-Oct-15 15:18:06

I'm a bit sad - I invested so much time into reading the thread that never dies. I can't believe it's gone.

Floralnomad Sat 10-Oct-15 15:18:10

At the top of the thread it says start a new thread in this topic ,click on that and then you can start your own thread.

Sparklingbrook Sat 10-Oct-15 15:18:29

There probably aren't any new ones. If you really, really want to discuss this you need to start a new thread.

But as the other thread proved it's not going to go down very well. So my advice would be don't.

Are there not Child Modelling websites that have chat boards where you could talk to people who also do it?

I am not being bossy either, I just don't think there is a big interest in it on here.

StrawberrytallCake Sat 10-Oct-15 15:19:32

So, erm, is your dd a child model Superproudmum?

Sparklingbrook Sat 10-Oct-15 15:20:17

Oh please Strawberry. Don't. sad

This thread is 4 years old OP.

<Only commented on this one to prove I know what year it is grin>

hobnobsaremyfave Sat 10-Oct-15 15:50:45

grin at is your child a model

hobnobsaremyfave Sat 10-Oct-15 15:52:02

I'm beginning to think threads here should have a "use by" date at which point they go poof

Sparklingbrook Sat 10-Oct-15 15:53:45

I think 'Best before' hob. In this one's case I would have put a mark down sticker on it and dated it 22/8/11.

Superproudmum09 : We don't bite newbies, really we don't.

However, you had just bumped two zombies within minutes of each other, and that's a bit off, as you might have noticed from the other - now deleted - thread. It's nothing personal - you could be a longstanding poster, a newbie, a troll or a spambot - it's the release of multiple zombies that was unwelcome.
