Tips for Modeling Teenagers

Taking the plunge as a modeling teenager can be scary, especially if you are a girl or boy not knowing where to start but this tutorial will help you with some things to do and some not to do.

How to get started as a kid or teen model?

This question is one of many I get as a professional female model photographer and it has many answers.

These tips for males and females will answer some of the issues involved in the entertainment industry and will help you understand the reality instead of the fantasy of making the top list of supermodels or even working locally.

First Things First

Before you run out and buy new outfits, take snapshots and apply to major teen markets like Ford or Elite, get the requirements and set some reasonable goals.

When deciding what teenagers in modelling need to know, jot this down. If you are applying to IMG Management or one of the other “big guys” or, even if you decide to go local, know the requirements of how tall you need to be, weight and attributes of petite, mid-range or plus size models, etc.

Most teenagers ready to get started in modeling throw these first steps to chance. Let me say this is a big mistake! Learn as much as you can about fashion kids models, commercial or promotional modeling so that you can see where you fit in. Then, your goals become more realistic.

Setting and Working Your Modeling Goals

I’m a big believer in putting “legs” on your goals. To set your sights on getting into commercial modeling for kids, write down the following:

Types of modeling you are interested in for your child (i.e. catalog, fashion, catwalk, kid’s commercial modelling)

Days of the week you have available for practice (I suggest that you practice posing for your child and help them with facial expressions for at least everyday. The big name models practiced relentlessly before they became stars.

Make agency contacts – When you feel comfortable with posing and other factors in , set dates for contacting talent agencies. The type agent will be relevant to the type of model goals you have and I will not list all these here. You can find a list of model agents at bobpardue.com/model-agency-list .

Treat rejection as an opportunity – It’s a fact that you will most likely be turned down. If that happens don’t take it personally. Teenagers who make it in modeling take failure as a way to improve and then try again.

Repeat the above process – An old saying goes – “Never give up, never, never give up.” I believe this is true in all walks of life and certainly applies to modeling teenagers.

So, if you are a teenager or have a child with a dream of modeling locally or internationally read over these tips again and write out your goals, put a date on them, put legs on them and turn your fantasy into reality. It all comes down to your being willing to do the work.

Final thought. Be sure as a Mom or Dad you keep informed in all aspects of the process and never leave your kid alone with agencies or photographers. Safety is a must!

The most important step in getting booked for these type jobs is to keep your child’s name in front of the right people. After all, publicity is what makes the stars from commercial modeling for kids, isn’t it? Check out more online to see how your baby or child fits in.
