Child modeling is a lucrative industry offering gorgeous, funny and outspoken children the opportunity to see themselves on the covers of magazines, in TV commercials, modeling clothing and more. Those kids who make it can find themselves a well-known name in the area while making an excellent salary as they do. If you are a parent in Kentucky who believes their child has what it takes to make it as a model, the first thing to do is find a reputable modeling agency in the state. Not all of the modeling agencies you see will be worth your while, but that isn’t to say there aren’t plenty that are.
When it is time to choose a talent agency for your child it is essential that you select a company that offers work for children. Not all agencies will offer work for children or may be limited in what is available. By choosing a modeling agency that has plenty of work for the 18 and under crowd you can be certain your child will be placed quickly.
The agency should be licensed in the state of Kentucky, have a professional staff and atmosphere and never charge any upfront fees. While there are fees for photography sessions and prints, marketing, etc. these are the only monies you should be out. A company that charges fees before placing your child are most likely there only to take your hard-earned money. A legitimate company will work diligently to place your child with a gig, at which time they’ll earn a commission ranging from 10 to 30%.
Some of the best modeling agencies representing children in Kentucky include:
Located in Louisville, Heyman Talent began in Cincinnati in 1989. The company works closely with their clients and now offers seven different locations.

While the list of agencies in Kentucky is short, there are many other modeling agencies in nearby Tennessee as well as in Indiana that are well worth the short drive if you are serious about your child entering the world of modeling. It is well-worth your time to choose a reputable, trustworthy modeling agency to represent your child, even if that means taking your needs somewhere else.
