The application process...
To register your child we would require you to complete the online application. We do not require professional photographs at this stage, two simple clear shots would do. You will receive a response, regardless of our decision, but if we were interested we would invite you to a test shoot. This enables us to meet you and your child and to see if they are comfortable and happy in a test shoot situation. From this we gain professional images to represent your child with and the photographs would be sent to you to keep.
We would like to point out that not every child is asked to register with Tyne Tees Models. As a professional agency we can only accept children who we think will secure work. If your child is not accepted it is by no means a reflection on your child or their looks.
The test shoot costs £55 (inclusive of VAT). Tyne Tees Models, unlike many other agencies does not charge joining/registration fees or consultation fees.
If your child is selected by the agency, the professional images from their Test Shoot will be used to produce model cards and their profiles will be added to our website for representation. The charge for this service is £30.00 (inclusive of VAT).
A child must be licensed to work as a model or actor, and this is organised through the agency and your local council. If your child is accepted on our books you will receive the relevant forms to apply for a child license.
It is important to understand that there are no guarantees in modelling. As an agency we take 25% commission from all work secured through us, we put models forward for assignments however it is the client who decides which model he or she would like to use. With our guidance your child should work however as we do not have the final say we cannot guarantee bookings.
