Modelling agencies for kids in Canberra

By gourmetmumma 14 December 2011 71

Just wondering if anyone has had any positive experiences with kids modelling agencies in Canberra.

I’m considering registering my kids with one, but have heard lots of negative things to be aware of.

Does anyone have any agencies here they would recommend?

I’ve also noticed some of the bigger agencies list themselves as ‘Australia wide’ but have no offices here in the ACT – anyone listed with any of these and had to travel far?

Thanks

What’s Your opinion?

BethiePrice – most sensible comment on here (although I am amused by many more)

gourmetmumma – did you really think you weren’t going to get this response? dpm (comment #3) and everyone else saw it coming a mile off.

I’m stunned at all of you. You’re a complete bunch of faceless bullies who have nothing better to…I’d be guessing you wouldn’t say half this stuff to someones face.
I have already requested that my post be removed because you are bunch of useless f***heads. If it is not removed this site will be reported.
Get over yourselves.

I’m glad gourmetmumma didn’t have a rant about anonymous people on the internet this time around… again, the irony of that statement escaped her at the time.

If you want constructive comments, you should give a bit more background.

Reasons Why…
1. Because I want them to – Good for you. Every parent thinks the same about their kids. So go to the yellow pages, find some agencies call them, research them ask to see their portfolios…get back on the internet forums and ask about specific agencies. Make sure your keep that psychologist’s phone number handy because you MAY need it. If you are pushing them into it because you didn’t make it as a kid or because you did make it as a kid make sure that you do it only when they are old enough to tell you that’s their goal too. I don’t see the point in forcing a child to complete your personal dream when you failed or making them do it because you want to have boasting rights (GENERALISED COMMENT ONLY – NOT SPECIFIC TO O.P)
2. Because they want too – Congratulations to your kids for having goals in life and kudos to you for being a good parent and encouraging them. Just please please promise me you will sit them down and explain the pros and cons. Explain to them that people are harsh and that they will sometimes be judged because they are too (insert this that and the other). The best place to educate your children is at home and they need to be as sure as they can be of your support should something not happen the way they want it to.
3. To boost self-esteem – modelling is not the way to do it. It is a very cut throat industry even for kids/child models. You can do you research on this by looking up news stories or reading magazines. IMO modelling is the worst way to boost self esteem. Try drama classes or public speaking classes. Self-esteem is better boosted by peers (sounds odd but true). If someone is doing great in a drama class others want to be like him or her so will generally try to surpass them. In this they need your support as well.
4. Because they need a hobby…have you thought of sport? I hear there is a new Junior Gridiron team starting up…little athletics? Callisthenics?
I’m hoping that this doesn’t come across at criticism, but before you post things in a public forum you need to make sure you are prepared to receive good and bad comments. You are in a public forum. The police will not do anything about this, trust me I learnt the hard way. Next time you post a comment or request for opinion in a public forum remember that this country supports freedom of speech. And if you don’t like people’s opinions…don’t’ ask for them.
I hope you have a good Christmas.

All I asked was “why?” Depending on your intentions there could be very different options. You still haven’t explained what kind of modelling, what benefit for the kids, what kind of spare time you have. Do you know what you’re doing?

“Can any of you give a legitimate answer as to why you hover around riotact terrorizing people who post innocent questions?”

Terrorizing? good lord…. hardly….
