After-School Program

Could your child be a model?

Becoming a model is a dream for many young girls and boys. We are committed to working with parents to ensure each child enters the modelling world safely, and that both parent and child are prepared and ready for the journey. Child, Teen and Tween modelling can be a fun way to spend a day with your child, and if you are successful, a good way to earn a little extra cash. The demand for fresh faces is ever present as the child grows and no longer fits the age bracket for that group. We guide you to ensure you sign with a legitimate agency and avoid the wrong modelling agencies and industry pitfalls. RAW Talent is not an agency, however we have links to agents and casting directors and can recommend our star kids to the right agent. There is a huge range of child modelling work available, from TV advertisements, magazine advertising, children’s clothing catalogues, to even becoming a poster child for a children’s organisation. The money made from child modelling may not be enough to set them up for life, but could be a nice contribution to education or other costs further down the road.
Professional model agencies will require an up-to-date, clear photograph of your child. The course includes a photoshoot with a professional photographer along with guidance and direction during the shoot to ensure the best impression is captured. You will have a clear professional image to take advantage of recommended online child model directories. You may prefer to manage your child’s  modelling career yourself, you’ll need a high quality portfolio. If you decide to get a professional model portfolio with our expert team, we can offer advice and a constructive critique of your child’s performance in front of the camera and advise of the best images to appeal to child model agencies and clients.
Many parents take their children to a photographic studio and spend a lot of money having photographs taken, without understanding how to best present their child in order to secure bookings. Particularly when it comes to teens, some photographers and studios will try to make the child look older than they are – when in fact the opposite should be encouraged. It is always beneficial for children to look their age or younger, never older or “grown up”.  Our passion is your success. We will advise on the best possible way to present your child, to give them the best chance of being selected by agencies or directly with clients. If you wish to create a family album for posterity, then you are welcome to be as creative as you like! But for professional modelling work, keep it simple.
Our mission is to support you on your journey to becoming a model. Creating confident young people who have a positive self image.
A graduation fashion show takes place and a certificate is issued on completion of the course. Discounts on additional photographs are available.

As part of our commitment to social responsibility we offer a limited amount of free places. Please email your details to info@rawtalentuk.com with a short explanation as to why you feel you should be granted a free place.
