Ever wondered how the children appearing in parenting magazines, children’s clothing ads, kid’s toys and TV shows and commercials are chosen? These children are all represented by a modeling agent. Modeling agencies in North Carolina are recruited by companies when they need a model. The company provides the modeling agency with the age, gender and specific needs of the child; the agency finds the right child based on that criteria.
When you register your child with the area modeling agencies it could very well be your name and number being called during the next big gig. Who knows what type of company or product could want to feature your child on their label?
In order to find a North Carolina modeling agency for your child it is important to remember that not all agencies will actually provide you with work. Numerous modeling “schools” are out there, doing practically nothing other than taking your money.
A legitimate modeling agency will never charge any fees for their services. They work on commission from jobs that your child is placed on. Any company that wants to sell you a class or photography package/portfolio is probably not a company that will benefit you.
Some of the best North Carolina modeling agencies for kids include the following.
Talent Trek Modeling
Located in Asheville, Talent Trek Modeling was founded in 1983. There are two Tennessee locations in addition to the North Carolina facility. The modeling agency works with children of all ages but it is important to remember that not every child will fit the role of what the agency is looking for. Applications are accepted by mail and must include photographs.

This group provides children a fabulous opportunity to work in many different types of modeling gigs, both print and commercial.

Why waste your time with companies that may or may not benefit you when the very best are right before your very eyes? These North Carolina modeling agencies have proven success representing children in the past and can benefit your little one, too.
