how often is the child offered a job?

the frequency of job offers depends exclusively on the child’s behaviour, looks and photo material

the more new photos your child has on our website, the easier it is for the client to determine if your child is the preferred model

experience and luck also play a part

confirmation of application is missing - what went wrong?

if you sent an application, and you did not receive a confirmation on the same day, it may be that you have either enclosed photos which are too large (we receive a maximum of 20mb), or perhaps your email contains a virus and has therefore been denied access by our firewall

try sending your application again and enclose smaller photos

test photo - what is that?

your child is invited to a test photoshoot at the agency             

we take a few photos of your child, partly to get an idea of the child’s talents, partly to see how the child reacts to a photographer that he og she does not know

usually, we will let you know on the same day if we are interested in representing your child

it is very important to us that the child likes to be photographed and smiles a lot

applicants will have to pay a fee of dkk 500,00 for testing at the bureau - this fee covers administration regarding the application, the photograher, getting the photos ready for the website and final enrollment of the model, if we are interested 

after your child is enrolled all tests are free of charge - testing in aarhus is always free for our models, and for now, in copenhagen aswell. but in the future, test photography in copenhagen can cost between kr. 500-800, depending on who the photographer is

if your child is rejected you will get 4-6 photos from the test, without additionel payment

what happens if the child refuses to be photographed?

fortunately, it happens quite rarely that the child model refuses to do a job

if, however, the situation occurs, the model is sent home, and the client informs the agency

if the child refuses to do the job within the first 35 minutes, the model does not receive a modelling fee

subsequently, the agency talks to the parents as well as the client to determine the cause and how the child can avoid a similar situation

Casablanca Models

does the child pay taxes?

Every child has a tax exemption card

if your child does not already have a tax exemption card, we will obtain one for the child at the time of payment of the modelling fee

income before taxation varies from person to person - e.g. It depends on your community of residence and the type of exemption

you have to pay employers’ contribution (currently 8%) of the modelling fee – we automatically deduct that

you can see the size of the child’s income before taxation by logging on to tax’ homepage www.skat.dk, or you can check your child’s assessment amount in the field tax exemption card amount

see tax card/tax exemption card on the top of the child’s tax assessment

when the tax exemption card amount has been exceeded, we automatically deduct taxes with the tax rate indicated on the child’s assessment - you do not have to do anything

the child receives a new tax exemption card/tax card every year on the 1st of january - we download it from SKAT’s homepage

Casablanca Models

how much is my child likely to work?

how many jobs a child model is offered in a year depends exclusively on the child’s age, height, look, behaviour and the flexibility of the parents

if the child does not have the desired height at the time of photoshoots to a catalogue or a website, the child will not be offered a job – often the agency only works within a span of 4 cm for a particular size of clothes

you decide how much time you want to spend and which assignments you accept

Casablanca Models

how long does an assignment take?

all jobs are done on weekdays between  8.00 am and 3.00 pm – rarely during weekends

babies between 0 and 2 years typically have 1-2 photoshoots

children at the age of three typically have 1-4 photoshoots – the job automatically stops when the child refuses to continue – if there are many photoshoots, we recommend that the client books a backup model who can take over if things do not work out according to plan

children between 4-7 years typically work from 1 to 8 hours (much of that time is just waiting time)

the agency always takes the child’s degree of tolerance into account

we do not send children out on assignments longer than we think they can tolerate

there is, of course, no guarantee that the child will do what is expected of it, and the client is well aware of that

Casablanca Models

which assignments are offered to a kids model?

casablanca models books children in ages ranging from 6 months to 14 years to photos, fashion shows and advertising both on print and film

Casablanca Models

who can accompany the child model to a job?

the child is only allowed to bring one accompanying person to an assignment and no siblings unless the mother is nursing or it has been otherwise agreed in advance

if you have a driver, the person cannot come into the location with you, but is welcome to go for a walk in the surrounding area

the accompanying person can be either mother, father, grandparents, a family member at least 17 years old or a friend that the child knows and feels comfortable around
