The first step to getting representation at a child modeling agency is to send prospective agencies photographs. Mail an envelope with three color photographs of the child, including one close-up photo of the child's head and another showing the child posing from a distance. Include a letter in the envelope stating that the child is interested in modeling representation. Add information about the child's age, clothing size, eye color and hair color in the inquiry letter.
When an agency accepts the letter, it schedules an appointment to sign a contract with the child and his guardians. Do not give money to agencies before signing a contract, warns Parents.com. Consumer Reports suggests avoiding modeling agencies that require a specific photographer to do casting photos. Do not sign contracts with agencies that only accept cash or money orders, and check the company's reputation online. Ask the agency for contact information of previous clients to ensure the business is verified.Learn more about Career Aspirations
