We see them almost every day, but we don’t often think about the opportunity to be in one. Catalogues! Every catalogue you find in your letterbox usually includes models. Department stores, clothing stores and many other retailers use child models in their catalogues.
Usually, the kids will be happy, smiling and playing. Whether they’re modelling clothes, toys or anything else, kids have a great time on catalogue modelling shoots, and it’s a great place to start.
TV advertisement modelling for kids
Several types of companies advertise on television, and many require child models. This is where modelling crosses over with acting in a way, however TV advertisements are varied. In some cases, the kids are just jumping around, playing or modelling clothes. You’ll see these ads everywhere, for large clothing retailers and department stores.
Other types of TV modelling are more like acting. The children are required to do something more specific, or maybe even say a few lines. So, depending on your child’s experience and skill, TV modelling can be a stepping stone for an acting career.
Every business needs professional photography done for their products. Children’s clothing retailers in particular, always need models for new products on their website. While these jobs aren’t always the highest-paying, they are a good place to start. Think about all the businesses out there selling children’s clothes, toys, educational products and more. They all want to show their products in the best light, and that usually requires some happy kids modelling on their site.
Modelling for babies
Let’s not forget about modelling for babies! There’s plenty of work out there for the older kids, but baby products need to be advertised too. Think about all the television commercials, websites and catalogues selling products for babies. That’s where modelling for kids extends right down to the little ones.
Obviously baby models don’t need to have acting or modelling skills, just the right temperament to be happy for the cameras!
