How to Get Started with The Bell Agency

For Film/TV/Theatre for Kids and Adults

Please email us and include a headshot, resume, and either a demo reel, taped monologue, or taped audition.

For Kid Models 3-18

You must have professional photos from a photographer that photographs kid/teen models. These photos are the most important tool that we have to submit your child to our clients. We have a list of recommended photographers on our Parent page and on our Resource page. Please know if you are under the age of 13, we do not want any makeup on your child, no jewelry, and very little Photoshop. Boys, no earrings at any age. We need kids to look like kids!

For Kids Under 2 Years Old

If you are under 2, you do not need professional photos, but you must have good photos of your child. These photos are the only tool we have to get your child work. Please do not just submit any photo that you have on your phone. Please take photos with a clean background and good light. You child must be looking at the camera and smiling, if possible.

Guidelines for The Photos for Kids 2 and Under

  • Snapshots are fine. Really try to capture their NATURAL smile
  • Needs to be cropped so I see the child clearly
  • Only the child should be in the photo
  • Not eating
  • No massive bows
  • No hats or sunglasses
  • No pacifiers
  • Good natural light is important
  • Smiling if possible
  • No Instagram filters
