I absolutely loved my first modelling assignment today it was really good fun working with the photographer and the other children, I cannot wait for the next one!
My assignment was modelling Stem educational toys with other children for the catalogue and there wasn't a single part from the day I could pick out as more enjoyable than the rest as I loved every second from walking into the building to walking out again.
Actually I wish that I could of been there for a few more hours, I just love being in front of the camera!
For anybody who is thinking about or wanting to become a model I would just say two things, firstly "relax" and secondly "have fun"
I joined up with Talent Management for experience and to take advantage of the knowledge that they posses of the industry. This is something I really feel comfortable doing and enjoy, so hopefully my first of many assignments.
Thank you Talent Management team for my first opportunity!
We would absolutely recommend Talent Management to others, Rio was originally quite apprehensive about being a model for the first time, however, he soon lightened up and was looking forward to it :)
Rio had a fantastic day modelling for Stem educational toy catalogue whilst making some new friends , he said he really enjoyed it and would love to take part in some more modelling again soon.
We were all really looking forward to our day shooting as a family for Exbury Gardens and had a really great time. Harry didn't want to leave at the end of the day as he had had so much fun! Our 14 month old daughter, Bella, also seemed to enjoy every minute of the experience!
The gardens where the photography took place were stunning. We were made to feel very welcome and met some really lovely people on the shoot.
We would happily undertake a similar shoot again as a family. We would recommend the experience to others, as you get to visit new places and meet lovely people.
We decided to join up with Talent Management as so many people had commented on how our 4 year old son is such a natural in front of the camera, so we thought it might provide him with good experience and opportunities.
A big thank you from the Tomlinson family!
Elizaveta was a little nervous before the assignment, but the film crew and staff from Wex Photographic made her feel very welcomed, relaxed and comfortable. Elizaveta absolutely enjoyed the day and she would definitely love to do it again. Elizaveta received good comments from the film crew and they said she is very natural in her acting.
In the assignment she played a daughter which goes for a walk with her dad (played by another Talent management Model). During the walk they were stopping to look at the beautiful surroundings of Holkham Beach area and “dad” was taking pictures of Elizaveta using his new camera.
Elizaveta loved walking on the beach and in the woods surrounding it, but most of all she like interacting with the owl also on set, watching baby frogs in the woods and finding mushrooms under the trees. The day was finished by shooting the last scene at the lake with beautiful sunset.
Elizaveta gained a lot of experience from the video shoot and her confidence has grown a lot.
We would definitely recommend others to give their children the opportunity to have similar experience, it helps them to meet and interact with new people, it is fun and gives kids an enormous confidence boost.
We would definitely recommend joining an agency such as Talent Management as it is very hard to find work by yourselves. However you have to remember that the work in the talent industry can, at times, mean a long day and a very tired child at the end of it. Elizaveta started the video shoot at 09-30 and finished at 18-00 with an hour and a half of traveling each way. The client looked after us very well by providing lunch, snacks and drinks during the day.
Elizaveta would like to become and actress when she is older and by joining Talent Management she can gain experience and the confidence to pursue this career in the future.
We are hoping to be working with you again soon and thank you very much to Talent Management for a great day!
Immy had a great time shooting with the NHS for their new advertising material. She was a little star and the cameraman was surprised she was new to acting/modelling! Thanks Talent Management!

My son joined Talent Management for the experience of overcoming his shyness, and he was so cute in front of the camera on his first booking.
Robeka had a great time modelling for Disney Infinity. We can't wait for more assignments through Talent Management!
Paignton had a great day, lots of fun and the team worked really well with her and were very welcoming. The assignment involved photo shots of her playing with the puzzles and having messy play, which Paignton enjoyed the most. It was a great experience for her and she is very much looking forward to many more assignment opportunities. My reasons for signing with Talent Management was that I wanted to help build a career for my daughter. The staff were excellent in taking an interest and making sure we were both looked after - highly recommended!
Bonnie was a little nervous at the outset, but the Next crew made her feel comfortable and she absolutely shone and enjoyed the day. She would absolutely love to do it again and the comments from the Next crew were that a) Bonnie was a good find for Next and b) They would definitely like to use her again.
The assignment involved dressing in a new Next outfit and then having her pictures taken on Cromer Pier. Bonnie loved dressing up and having her pictures taken. Bonnie certainly gained experience from the photo shoot, but her confidence boost outweighed this.
I would definitely recommend others to encourage their children to do this for the experience and the confidence boost, let alone the fun element and meeting new people. We are not experienced enough yet to give advice about the industry, but I would definitely recommend joining an agency such as Talent Management as it is very hard to get exposure otherwise. We will be keeping on top of updating Bonnie's profile from now on.
One of my friends who is an amateur photographer suggested that Bonnie had the look that certain retailers would be looking for and suggested that we send her details to Talent Management. I believe that Bon would like to continue with this type of work but she is also an athlete and is quite academic so for now, we will just see where this goes and who knows?!
I really enjoyed my day today, it was so much fun and I would definitely do it again! I had to make lots of different puzzles in many different places. I did a puzzle on the table to start with and then moved to the grass, I even did a puzzle in the sand pit! I got on very well with the lady who was helping me - she made everything so interesting and the photographer was really nice too.
I would 100% recommend this experience for anyone the same age as me. It was amazing, as well as having my photos taken I was having a very fun time. My mummy and daddy signed me up to Talent Management as I love having my photos taken. This was my first assignment and I absolutely loved it!

We had a wonderful time yesterday at the clothes fittings session for Jessie from Jessie and James London. It was very exciting for Ariyanna - she really loved trying on all the new clothes before they were available to the public. We wanted Ariyanna to join Talent Management to get in to modeling, and we hope a photo shoot will be next in store for her. BIG THANK YOU TO TALENT MANAGEMENT!!!! :):)
Myleigh was booked to play a granddaughter on Duracell's latest corporate advert. She was extremely excited about this as she has never filmed before. Myleigh was made a fuss of and introduced to the friendly team including the film crew and the other actors. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The crew gave Myleigh direction of what they wanted her to do on the shoot, which was to read to her 'grandmother'. Myleigh's favourite part was meeting her 'grandmother', as she asked Myleigh whether she had any pets and was very friendly apparently.
This is Myleigh's 3rd shoot with Talent Management and she is still loving every moment and learning new skills - today's filming proved that! Myleigh has learnt so much from the 3 different shoots she has had over her time with TM - her confidence has grown and I was told by the director today that "Myleigh takes direction very well which makes our job easier".
I would recommend signing your child up with Talent Management - Myleigh has gone from strength from strength learning new things along the way and it has been a wonderful life experience for her. Thanks again Talent Management for yet another fun shoot! :)
Caprice was chosen to model for the company Kit for Kids (for the third time!) which she thoroughly enjoyed. She especially enjoyed playing with the many toys and games they have there at the studio and the guys there always keep her fully entertained with toys etc while she is waiting for her turn behind the camera! This shoot consisted of Caprice lying on a bed to model a bed rail, and although it wasn't as fun as playing with the toys they hid some under the blankets to make it more fun and enjoyable for her.
Every time Caprice has another modelling shoot her confidence and ability to listen to the director's instructions improves. It's lovely to watch Caprice at the shoots - I feel so proud of the way she performs and how big the smile is on her face! If anyone was thinking of signing their child up with Talent Management I would most definitely recommend it as they get to experience some great moments, especially when you can look back on the photos and see how your child has developed and what she have achieved! It's also very rewarding for them as they gain skills in confidence and learn how to interact and communicate with other children and adults. I know Caprice and I will look back on these experiences when she's older and feel so proud and happy of what she has achieved at such a young age.
Erin loved her day modelling for Conway County Council, as part of a family on location in North Wales. Erin was nervous at first as it was her first assignment, but was soon put at ease as everyone was so friendly. As part of the shoot Erin had lots of fun shots walking with her new family up to a castle and a church, once there they she had to run and play and enjoy looking at the beautiful scenery. They were promoting the use of audio trails (downloadable apps for mobile phones) so they all had to use a phone and earplugs which Erin really enjoyed. The photographers were extremely friendly and professional and made everyone really relaxed. Erin now can't wait for her next job, as she can have lots of fun and earn money at the same time. Thanks to Talent Management for this great experience.
Archie really enjoyed his day modelling for Conway County Council, promoting an audio app for the castle and the church. Archie was working with a model family, who all bonded well - Archie particularly enjoyed running with Erin (his model sister) around the castle grounds. There was plenty of giggles and fun was had by all. Thanks Talent Management for a brilliant second assignment!
Caprice loved her assignment with Kit for Kids. She sat on a really cool soft seating set based on an underwater theme, and she loved putting the detachable sea characters on the fun wall, especially the seahorse which was her favourite! She read books and played with bricks while the lovely photographer took pictures of her. They also had huge soft plush characters to sit on and she meet two other really lovely children (both around her age) and they happily all played together. Caprice is definitely gaining more confidence each time she does a shoot and you can see how much she enjoys it - it's just like going to a really fun play group or soft play centre for the day! I would definitely recommend signing your child up with Talent Management - not only will they gain confidence, but they will have a fun and worthwhile experience every time. I personally think that when Caprice is older she will appreciate the modelling experiences she had when she was young and they may even lead onto bigger things for her in the future :-)Apply: Child modelling
I really enjoyed my assignment with Kit for Kids - I didn't want to leave - the man who took the photographs was funny. I loved the equipment we played with and I made a new friend too. I can't wait to do it again! Thank you Talent Management for letting me be a model for the day. From Ruth
Amelia had a great time on her first assignment with Kit for Kids. The staff made all of us very welcome and our daughter felt at ease from the start. Amelia was relaxed and totally comfortable as everything was done in a natural way with friendly people. Amelia was asked to do very familiar things i.e. read, sit or play while the photos were taken - it wasn't formal at all! Anyone thinking of signing their child up to a modelling agency should give Talent Management a go... We did, and we had so much fun!
Tyler had a fantastic day modelling educational equipment for Kit for Kids. He was not all nervous prior to the photo shoot - in fact, I think it was more me with the nerves! Tyler was asked to act as though he was studying, reading and writing while having his picture taken. Tyler had a brilliant day and the staff were all amazing fun and very friendly.
It was Tyler's dad's decision to sign up with Talent Management and I would definitely recommend this company to other young models, as they will be provided with such lovely opportunities. Thanks ever so much for this experience and we hope to hear from you again soon - Kirsty & Tyler Mcnulty
We went along to Brandon's shoot for Kit For Kids and it was such an enjoyable day! There were snacks and refreshments for adults and children. I love how Brandon just felt like he was reading books and playing but was actually being snapped by the camera. The people working on the shoot were very friendly, great at directing and Brandon listened to everything they said. It was very professional and we even got to keep some of the Kit for Kids furniture - which is now sat in Brandon's bedroom as a reminder of a fantastic day. I would recommend this to anyone, as it is a great way to get into modeling especially from a young age.
We didn't know where to start with getting Brandon into modelling - and Talent Management have been great in making his dreams become reality. Thanks again Talent Management - Brandon hopes to do more work like this :)

I was very nervous when I arrived for my shoot, but ended up having so much fun! The company, Kit for Kids, were really good and we had toys to play with from them - even on breaks. I loved modelling and can't wait to do it again! Thanks to Talent Management for my first modelling job, Daisy.
My 2 year old daughter was booked to model, along side two other kids, various educational equipment products on behalf of Kit for Kids. Photos were taken of the children taking part in various activities. The children were asked to browse through/look into the story books for pictures, they also were asked to pick up toys and stick them on the wall etc. It was FUN and my little girl enjoyed her day and the experience thoroughly. There were enough snacks and drinks for everyone and my daughter was allowed to keep the t-shirt and socks that she modelled with - she was also allowed to take some toys and room carpets! In all, it was a good fun experience and definitely something we're looking forward to doing more in the future. Thanks so much Talent Management!
Lincoln loved the experience with Kit for Kids, he had so much fun doing what he does best - playing with new toys!
Lincoln enjoyed having his picture taken and then asking the photographer to look at them on his camera afterwards.
The assignment involved playing with the equipment from Kit for Kids whilst pictures were being taken for their new catalog.
Lincoln didn't really learn anything from the experience as he is a very confident boy, but I have learned what things I need to take and what happens on an assignment like this.
I would recommend the experience to anyone who has a child that they think would take assignments in their stride as part of their everyday life - go for it! I would absolutely advise signing up with Talent Management, but be prepared to make time to keep your e-portfolio up to date and complete paperwork for the necessary licenses.
We signed Lincoln up with Talent Management as so many people kept telling us that he was cute and thought we had nothing to lose - seems we were right!
Jacob was really looking forward to having his picture taken today. When we arrived at the job we did have to wait for quite a while for them to set up, but Jacob was really good and was very patient even though he was so excited.
Jacob was asked to sit and look at a book and play with some building blocks as his picture was taken. The photographer commented that he was good at taking direction too! He got on well with the other children there and had a really fun day.
The staff were very good at the assignment. Friendly and efficient - and we finished earlier than planned.
This was Jacob's first modelling job and I stepped back and let him get on with the job rather than interfering. I would definitely do it again as he had such a good time and did what he was told. I will be making an effort to keep his e-portfolio up to date to try and get some more jobs for him.
We joined Talent Management as lots of people thought he would be good at modelling. As long as he enjoys it, we will keep going.
This was Harvey's first assignment with Talent Management. He was a bit shy at the beginning, but as soon as he had his first lot of photos done he was on the ball! The client was very friendly and it was such a relaxed atmosphere which I think helped a lot with the children's nerves. Harvey had to pose with two other child models on big carpets/mats pretending to read books while sitting on cushions. The products that were modelled are supplied to schools and nurseries all over the country - and the final images from the photo shoot will appear in brochures and on the clients website, which is exciting! A great morning with great people. Thanks to Molly at Talent Management for the experience!
