Kids headshots and how to get a talent agent.

Kids Headshots and how do I get a talent agent for my children? 
As a kid's headshot photographer I have helped countless parents over the years get their kids a talent agent or talent manager.  Many parents have called me to book their kid's headshot appointment and it comes up in the conversation that the child does not yet have an agent.  The parent is often concerned about some of the scams out there, yet wants to pursue representation and help their child get started in the industry.  In this post I share info about getting a talent agent with your kid's headshots.

 The bottom line is you need to get your child or teenager in front of a kids talent agent.  There are several ways of doing this including personal referral, kids acting class or the traditional mass mailing to the youth talent agents your kid's headshots.

In all cases you will need to have a great kid's headshot that can be submitted to a kid's talent agency for consideration.   Continue reading for the three ways to get your child in front of a Los Angeles talent agency.  In the meantime here's some examples of excellent kid's headshots:

In this kids headshot you can see lot's of confidence and very strong communication from the eyes.  It's not about the clothes at all.  This kid's headshot is a very strong theatrical headshot. (Theatrical relates to TV & film in this industry.)
Kid's headshots should be taken by a professional headshot photographer so that your image stands out, gets noticed and lets the agent know you are ready to proceed as a professional.  Even though they are dealing with kids, it is still a business and professionalism is very much expected.  I can't tell you how many times a new client has told me they sent out snap shots or photos of their kids and they didn't get a response from the agent.  Subsequent to this conversation, I did the child or teens headshots, I gave the parent some guidance and then I receive a thank you note from the parent who has now found a talent agent for their budding young actor.  What got them in the door?  A great kid's headshot!
Using your kids headshot to land a talent agent in Los Angeles & submitting kids headshots.
A kids headshot should be taken by a professional headshot photographer so that your image stands out, gets noticed and lets the agent know you are ready to proceed as a professional.   As you can see this is not just a snapshot or iphone photo.  It is a professional kid's headshot which gets the attention of talent agents, talent managers and casting directors.
As I mentioned above one of the ways you might get an agent is through a personal referral.  A personal referral to a talent agent or talent manager can come through an acting coach, a children's headshot photographer or maybe you have a friend who is willing to give your child's headshot to a talent agent they are connected to.  Agents are always looking for talented or outgoing kids.   In any case the agent will want to see your kid's headshot before scheduling a meeting or audition.   Here is another sample of a great kid's headshot.

Option two is to sign your child up for a reputable kid's acting class.   Many acting schools have showcases.  This is when students perform and talent agents and talent managers are invited to watch.   The agents go to these showcases to scout new kids.   Kids will still need to have their professional acting headshot ready to give to the agent during the showcase.  Be prepared with an amazing kid's headshot!

The third option involves mass mailing your kid's headshot to talent agencies and letting them know you are seeking representation.  Some agents are now accepting email submissions, but many still want a snail mail submission.  The procedure is to send your chilren's headshot, acting resume and brief cover letter stating that your looking for representation and noting any special skills or personality traits.   An excellent kid's headshot will get noticed and can get your child in the door.
