Good Photographs

Whether you decide that you are going to go out on your own to find acting jobs or you are going to try to get an agency to pick your kid up, you will need good photographs of your child. Usually you will need to invest a few hundred dollars, for head shots, body shots and candid shots of your child. It is important that these photographs are kept up to date. You will need to keep the photographs current by taking new photographs approximately every six to eight months.

There are photographers that specialize in professional portfolios they will be able to catch your child at their best.


It may be a little more difficult to find the auditions or the open calls without an agent, but still very possible. You simply have to know where to look for acting jobs for kids and you have to be able and willing to show up for auditions at the drop of a hat.

There are newspapers and online venues that will offer information as to when and where auditions are being held. Once you find out the when’s and the where’s of the audition make sure you show up on time, as a matter of fact being thirty minutes early will not hurt your cause. Make sure your child is well rested and fed before the audition so that they are on their best behavior.

Follow directions completely. If there are any specifics that are given about the audition make sure you follow them, if not you have a great chance of getting cut before your child is even seen.

Acting jobs for kids are a great way to get your child noticed. It is well worth the work that it takes to get their foot in the door
