Bizzykidz child modelling agency 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 child modelling agency & baby model agency and have grown to what has become the UK’s largest with divisions covering Central, Southern & Northen England, Scotland & Wales. We also have our Bizzykidz Spain division, working in collaboration with 2 very reknowned international production companies. 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 child model agencies, although seeming appealing to an applicant, are not ideal for clients when seeking children, hence why there are very few commercial assignments and model briefs 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.
We have a Newbie Talent Division for those with less experience/confidence, an Intermediate Talent Division for the more advanced/confident artist and our Model Division
Bizzykidz is the first port-of-call for journalists & producers who are keen to share with their audience the expertise and knowledge of a reputable agency. Debi Clark (Director) and the agency have appeared on BBC News, Sky News, numerous Radio stations, ITV's This Morning, Channel 5's Big Brother, Channel 4 in a 4 part TV documentary Series & in countless national & local newspaper and magazine publications.
From our humble beginnings in a small home/office, we were based in an amazing and huge studio complex in South London/Kent for 8 years and in 2017 moved to our current location in Rochester, offering 4 acres of film and photography space which we hire to clients. 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 hired to clients for shoots & filming - making us now the complete package for potential clients; we have the kids, the studio and land and the crew! Why would they go anywhere else?
Bizzykidz Child Modelling Agency is recommended by many baby brands, are used by the majority of clients out there and to celebrate our success we were involved in a TV series following our agency (solely), kids and parents over a 12 month period. The show went on to air in Europe & then Australia...so we even went global. Our show The Tiny Tots Talent Agency was even nominated for a TV Choice Award 2016. Following an incredible 20+ years in business, Bizzykidz were finalists in the Bexley Business Awards for 2 categories and ended the year being crowned 2016 winners of Best Child Talent & Model Agency UK. It really doesn't get much better than that, but we went on in 2017 winning Corporate Vision Magazine's 2017 Global Excellence Award for 'Most Outstanding Child Talent & Model Agency'. We were then crowned winners of the 'Best Agency Child Agency' category for the Global Business Insight Awards in 2018 and 2019.
2015 saw the launch of our Bizzykidz Angels division, representing babies and children with various disabilities.
2020 saw the launch of our Bizzykidz Spain division and the introduction of our 'virtual' assessment procedure.
2021 we rebranded and are primarily a talent agency, with a new specialist booking system with dedicated assigned bookers for our artists. We also launched our 'Influencers' division.
The agency subsidises the cost of any photography supplied for their agency children wishing to update their profile helping to keep costs down to a minimum, and does not charge for their initial shoot, images, or assessment, allowing them to have gorgeous images for their agency profile included in the set up cost. 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 have 26 appointed studios across the whole of the UK, catering for those who live further afield. Our office slogan is "we lead, they follow" and it is so true!
We want our children and parents to enjoy the feeling of a very close-knit, friendly and approachable child modelling 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 child modelling agency is highly professional, however, we keep the emphasis on the word ‘fun’ when dealing with our children; and we always will!
