FRIENDS FOR LIFE
Erin was very excited to receive the call from Molly at Talent Management to say she had been selected for the Cotswold Outdoor photo shoot. As this was her first assignment she was a little nervous to begin with, but within an hour of being there she was made to feel totally at ease. She worked with two other child models from Talent Management - Myleigh and Luca, who she got on with really well with and are now friends for life.
The actual assignment took place in an outdoors setting for three days, which had the children in a beautiful field setting with tents, kite flying and a picnic. On the second day they were taken down by the river for canoeing, fishing and another picnic then the third day was spent on a beautiful beach where they had pictures taken of them hiking and then splashing and playing in the sea. Erin learnt a lot and has gained so much confidence from this experience. I would recommend any child who loves being in front of the camera to give modelling a go, as it certainly builds a child’s confidence and gives them a lot of enjoyment.
If anyone is serious about modelling then I would definitely recommend joining Talent Management as they have a great team and have really made my little girl happy by giving her the opportunity to be selected for this assignment. I signed up Erin as I wanted her to grow in confidence and have fun with the experiences and she is certainly having that.Apply: Child modelling
EVERYONE WAS SO FRIENDLY
Chloe was so excited about her assignment with Snazaroo. She had a brilliant time and enjoyed every minute of it. Chloe loved having her face painted in stages and having the pictures being taken in between.
We would, and have, recommended Talent Management to friends - with the advice of keeping your portfolio up to date. Chloe enjoyed her self so much and everyone was so friendly. She is hoping that she gets another assignment soon! Thank you.
THOUGHT IT WAS A REAL PARTY!
Jakob had an amazing day having his face painted for the Snazaroo assignment. The theme was a children's party and Jakob actually thought it was a real party, and asked whose birthday it was!
He loved dressing up in the different outfits and posing for the photographs, and he also made a few new friends as well. The team made us feel very welcome, and were obviously very experienced in working with children.
Jakob gained even more confidence in front of the camera and is really looking forward to future assignments. He was a little disappointed that we couldn't return to the shoot again the next day as he enjoyed it so much.
We have been very proactive with checking the Talent Management jobs board and their Facebook page for updates - in fact Jakob stepped in at the very last minute on this particular job. Our advice would be keep your profile updated, and keep looking out for any jobs/ requests as you never know, you could be exactly what they are looking for.
WHAT MORE COULD A GIRL WANT?!
We joined Myleigh up to Talent Management to help build her confidence and gain experience. This was Myleigh's first assignment and it was for Snazaroo, the world's largest face painting company. When we arrived Myleigh was made very welcome, which immediately put her at ease.
Her first face paint was a monkey; Myleigh had such fun jumping around and getting into character. Myleigh said the best bit was ' having the girly glittery butterfly face' and pretending to be having a girl's birthday party - they had balloons, music, pretty dresses and wonderfully painted faces...... what more could a girl possibly want?!!
Myleigh surprised me with her confidence and patience, they had so much fun and made so many new friends that the time went so fast and she didn't want to go home. She is looking forward to tomorrow when she returns to see what other characters she will be.
I recommend signing your children up to Talent Management as they learn so much from the experience. I know for certain Myleigh will remember this for the rest of her life. Thank you Talent Management and thank you Snazaroo for giving Myleigh this fantastic opportunity.
Casey was very excited about being a model for Snazaroo and she would absolutely love to do it all over again. The part she found most entertaining was having her face painted as a clown. She had her face painted then her photos taken. It really gave Casey confidence and made her more comfortable around the camera. I would recommend this to people as she had a fab day and met lots of new people who were all lovely. I would tell anyone thinking of joining a modelling agency to keep updating your pictures and information and apply for jobs - you will soon get one :). I chose Talent Management as it was reasonably priced and they were helpful with information.
A DREAM COME TRUE
Keila felt very privileged to be chosen and was very happy to be a part of this assignment! It was her first photo shoot and so naturally she was nervous… however, the client was extremely friendly and professional and put her at ease. It was a dream come true for her and she would definitely like to do this again. Thank you very much Talent Management for giving Keila this experience.
CLIMBING IN CONFIDENCE
The assignment Talent Management sent me on with the National Trust was really good fun but I was very nervous because I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. In this modelling shoot I had to overcome my fear of heights as we were asked to climb a tree for the photos! But the photographer was nice and helped a lot. The tree was easy to climb, there were five of us in the tree and we had lots of pictures taken in different poses. In the end I enjoyed climbing and got more confident as I climbed higher and higher. I think everyone should climb trees because this was what the National Trust says is good for us. I would say that being a model is a great way of doing new things and learning new stuff. If you want to be a model you should join an agency and try to keep your e-portfolio up to date. I did this for the experience and have enjoyed my work as a model.
NOT WANTING TO LEAVE!
Ellie was very exited to be doing this shoot as it was her first shoot with Talent Management, so she didn't really know what to expect. She was a bit nervous but she soon fell in to what she had to do. It was a very fun two days for her, which involved doing a shoot for a face painting company. She enjoys having her face painted anyway, so it was like a dream come true for her. When it came for her to leave on the second day she didn't want to leave as she was having too much fun. Thank you very much for giving Ellie this experience.
LEARNING NEW SKILLS
James felt very excited being a model for the day. He really had a nice time and had lots of fun. He is looking forward to doing again. The Talent Management assignment involved James and three other children taking part in creative face painting activities. James and the other children had their photographs taken together for promotional purposes for Snazaroo, the world’s largest face painting company. The photographs will be used for their website, leaflets/books and packaging. James enjoyed all of it, especially the photo shoot outside. He's gained so much confidence and skills from this; working as a group, taking direction, listening the photographer, being creative etc. James would recommend the experience to others, because he enjoyed it and had lots of fun.
MAKING IT POSSIBLE
I really enjoyed being a model for the day, especially having my face painted and then being photographed during each stage of the process. I was very nervous to begin with, but the people there were very helpful and friendly, which helped a lot. It has boosted my confidence and I would very much like to do it again. Thank you Talent Management for making it possible.
It was a fun and good experience for Persia. The assignment involved face painting. I joined Persia up to Talent Management for her to gain experience, fulfil her ambitions and gain extra money.Apply: Child modelling
EXPERIENCE & MONEY
Christian loved the assignment. It involved face painting and was fun. I will definitely recommend the experience to others. Christian loved modelling a lot and decided he wanted to join Talent Management himself to get the experience and money.
TIGER, OCTOPUS & KNIGHT
Jack absolutely loved his assignment and had so much fun! He wasn't fazed by the camera at all and kept saying "next time..." so obviously wants to do more assignments!
The whole assignment was fun as it was for the world's largest face painting company so Jack got to be a tiger, an octopus and a knight all day. The photos were of step-by-step instructions of how to paint the above, so Jack had photos taken at different stages of the painting.
We would definitely recommend this experience to friends and in fact already have! I'm sure this sort of work isn't everyone's cup of tea but I can only go by what we have experienced and it has been a very positive experience.
Being with Talent Management has been good because you can see the jobs on the job board and apply for them if you think you would be suitable. Also, being in control of your own e-portfolio is brilliant.
ENJOYING THE THRILL
Connor loved being a model for the day. He really had fun, enjoyed it and would love to do it again. He enjoyed the thrill of a new experience, being painted and being able to work with new people. The modelling job involved going to a farm and spending 1/2 day having his hands and face painted to advertise for face painting designs step by step. He would recommend this to others and has not stopped talking about the experience. It was a good move signing Connor to Talent Management and we hope more work will follow.
FACE PAINTING FUN
Darina enjoyed the assignment day; she was absolutely fine, had lots of fun, and made new friends. She's looking forward to doing more modelling jobs in the future. The most enjoyable part was changing into different outfits for the photoshoots. The assignment involved trying on outfits, face painting and after posing for photo shoots. She learnt to be confident and work in a group of other kids. We would 100% recommend this to others, as it is great fun. The thing that made us to decide to join Talent Management was that we could see our daughter's potential and also because we believe that this agency is well managed, plus Darina's ambition.
I'd love to do a job like this again, and again it was brilliant like the last job. I wasn't nervous, I just couldn't wait. As this was my second job, I knew what I was doing, as it was with the same company as before. I'd totally recommend it to anyone, it's fun to do and I'm always learning new things and making new friends. If I could do it all again I would over and over. The best bit was meeting all the people again. The job was doing a shoot for ADHD medicine. I'm on leaflets all over, and am glad I can help people who have this form of ADHD.Apply: Child modelling
A NICE DAY OUT
This Models Direct assignment was only a fitting, but Sienna loved getting changed and trying clothes on. The atmosphere was relaxing as the people were nice. Sienna wasn't nervous at all and enjoyed travelling and having a nice day out!
I had a really good time at the Nintendo casting Models Direct organised for me, it was very exciting. The people from Nintendo were very nice to me and the best bit about the day was all of it! It was a new experience for me and I enjoyed meeting the other models there, especially my two fake mum and dads, who were really nice to me and made me feel at ease.
ALL FUN & GAMES
The Nintendo casting Models Direct set up was a very exciting day! I had a brilliant time. We got to try out for 2 adverts. The first time I was really nervous, but the second time I was much more relaxed and had a much better time. We had a laugh with our fake mum and dad and they made us feel confident.
A STAR FOR THE DAY
I loved the modelling assignment with Models Direct! Everyone was so nice. I had to pose doing everyday things such as getting up, going to bed, brushing my teeth, eating lunch and breakfast, playing, and going to school. It felt great; I was a star for the day! Everyone fussed over me, which I liked a lot! I really, really enjoyed my 2 days.
The assignment with Models Direct was very relaxed and professionally conducted. The client and photographer were very helpful and Gemma was very relaxed and loved the two days. She was required to pose in several different school situations and it all went really well. Thank you for finding Gemma the assignment and she is keen to do more!Apply: Child modelling
A VERY COOL SMURF!
Ashleigh said the modelling assignment was “exciting and very cool”. Ashleigh enjoyed "everything". She had her hair & make up done and then modelled a Smurf fancy dress costume. Ashleigh is becoming more and more confident modelling fancy dress outfits and is a mini pro. She is now very natural at it and can pose easily without being prompted.
We were made to feel very welcome from the start; refreshments and lunch were provided, the day was explained to us and we were shown a brochure. The children were asked to wear different dressing up outfits for the catalogue shoot. The children were put at ease and always told how well they were doing. Tommy really enjoyed his day and talked about it for days after! They were a really nice friendly group of people who we would definitely work for again.
Carla's mother, Rebecca, said: The make-up artist was very good, and everyone was very nice, relaxed and calm. Carla said "that was fun, I would like to do that again", so thank you.
Carla added: It felt great to be a model, I really enjoyed myself. The best thing about the assignment was trying all the outfits on. We were asked to do lots of different poses, which was fun.
A MINI PRO
Ashleigh had a lovely modelling assignment with the same client and photographer that she has been modelling for over the last year. Ashleigh seemed confident and a mini pro, as all the posing comes naturally now. Ashleigh modelled several Hello Kitty fancy dress costumes - which is a favourite in our house!
