SCHOOLS FOR CHILDREN / PREPARATION

 

MODEL SCHOOLING FOR CHILDREN

In this area you must be extremely careful. It is always the responsibility of the parent to do the appropriate due-diligence before allowing anyone to either photograph or spend time alone with your child. This applies up to the age of 18 and even then great care must be taken.

First, you must be sure that both the Photographic Studio and Photographer have been properly vetted. This applies to any Modeling school or Agencies which shows an interest in the child. Check everyone carefully. It is time to become Pro-Active.

If you are confident that the Agency is professional, reliable and legitimate and shows a genuine interest in this child and has a strong possibility of work for the child – then proceed, but always with parental supervision.

Below you will find a number of links and references to laws designed to protect young people. It would be to your best interest to read these even if you do not live in the geographical area where the law exists.

Please do not look at your child as a means to fulfil your dreams or as a means to make money. Always place the child's interest first.
