On a whim I submitted a few snaps of my nearly 8 month old to two model agencies. It's not my usual territory and I was curious whether he would be accepted. Money is really tight as I'm a single parent and I thought this could give him a start on his savings. They have responded offering him a contract but I need to pay £189 for the contract plus £80 for professional pictures. No work is guaranteed but they say they only accept about 10% of applicants (still - I'm sure that's a lot of kids!).
I'm 99% sure I won't be doing this as I simply don't have the money and it's probably not my scene in the first place but I'm reading that they are a well known and reputable agency and wondering if I am passing up a great opportunity?
