Our F.A.Q.S

Q. Is there a fee to join your agency?

A. No we do not charge any joining fees.

Q. How does the agency earn money?

A. We earn money by keeping a percentage of each job we secure our models.

Q. Can my child sign with other agencies?

A. We are a sole representation agency. Meaning models may only be signed with Willow and Wisp. However, we do allow children to have a separate Talent only agency. This will be discussed on a case by case basis.

Q. Does my child need a portfolio?

A. No, we do not require a portfolio to join. We ask parents to take good quality pictures against a plain background following our photo guidelines.

Q. Do you accept everyone that applies?

A. No, we are very selective and will only accept a small percentage of children

Q. Will my child need to miss school?

A. Yes, shoots may take place during school hours. If a child secures work Willow and Wisp will contact the school to request a signed authorisation of absence letter as part of a supporting document for a child performance license application.  We will then send a child performance license application to the child's local authority.

Q. What is a child performance license?

A. Children under the age of 16 need a license to work. The child performance licensing and activities legislation sets out the arrangements that must be made to safeguard children when they take part in certain types of performances, or paid modelling.

Q. Will my child be guaranteed work?

A. No, unfortunately we can not guarantee work. However, we do like to keep our books small to give each child a fair chance of securing jobs.

Q. When will my child be paid after a job.

A. The model is paid within 90 days of completing a job

Q. Does it matter where in the UK we live?

A. No, as long as you are happy to travel. Most jobs and castings take place in London but can be anywhere in the UK.
