Bizzykidz Child Talent & Model Agency
Bizzykidz was founded by Debi Clark in 1996. As the mother of a child model herself, she wanted to create a more friendly and approachable agency than she had experienced. We began as a small agency and have grown to what has become the UK’s largest with divisions covering Central, Southern & Northen England, Scotland, Wales & Ireland. Used by virtually every client in the industry it is necessary to hold a varied portfolio of children, allowing for unavailability, being booked out on another job and of course to offer the client a choice of faces for their assignment.
Smaller agencies, although seeming appealing to an applicant, are not ideal for clients when seeking children, hence why there are very few commercial assignments that don’t come through our busy bookings department and we are the preferred agency when looking for child talent and models to work within the TV, film and photographic industry. We are now a large agency, but we have a very large client list and every child on our books shares equal importance to us.
Where We Are Now
From our humble beginnings in a small home/office, we are now based at two amazing studio complexes in South London & Kent. Debi, a highly experienced and qualified photographer, has a fantastic team working alongside her at the agency and utilises her photographic skills in the studio, which we have used to branch out into the other side of the industry. The studios are regularly hired to clients for shoots, auditions, rehearsals and filming - making us now the complete package for potential clients; we have the kids, the studios and the crew! Why would they go anywhere else?
Bizzykidz are recommended by many baby brands, are used by the majority of clients out there and to celebrate our success we are the subject of a four x 1 hour episode Channel 4 documentary; airing early 2016.
The agency subsidises the cost of photography for their agency children wishing to update their profile, and does not charge for their initial shoot, images, or assessment, allowing them to have gorgeous images for their agency profile and at a very low price. This was one of the main objectives when taking over the premises and something that cannot be matched by our competition. Indeed every new thing we have introduced to help our kids (voiceovers, showreels, workshops, etc) have been copied to the letter by other agencies. Unfortunately for them they haven't been able to match our facilities, excellence, quality, or price to the parent. We even include free photography & assessment for our new joiners and work with studios in London, Kent, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Manchester, Norwich, Bristol, Essex, Bedfordshire, Herfordshire, Birmingham, Taunton, Southampton & Cardiff who carry out assessments and supply updates for those who live further afield . Our office slogan is "we lead, they follow" and it is so true!
And we do not charge yearly agency representation fees!
We want our children and parents to enjoy the feeling of a very close-knit, friendly and approachable agency. Our staff know ALL of our children and are aware of their strengths, which is invaluable when submitting them to clients for work.
We like our children to have fun and enjoy this wonderful life experience. Our agency is highly professional, however, we keep the emphasis on the word ‘fun’ when dealing with our children; and we always will!
