Laughter is the best medicine

We are told laughter is the best medicine, but if you’re not feeling it how can you laugh for the camera?

Whenever you see a model laughing on the front page of a magazine, you should remember that they are acting. This side of modelling is often forgotten as people don’t look past the smile and wonder what kind of day they might be having, or what they did after the shoot. They may well have got up before sunrise and travelled miles to a photo shoot, perhaps unwell, not feeling themselves or be dealing with any other of life’s challenges!

Family Modelling Hit’s An All Time High!

The  Burton Family have done it again……..

The Models Direct Assignments Team often receive modelling jobs asking for real families. But what’s it like modelling as a family?

“Yet again another fab day on an assignment for Models Direct. We have had a brilliant day on our photo shoot for a pensions brochure. Meqele, Ben and Simon all looked after us really well and made the day so much fun. We started our day in a home environment, baking and having fun in and around the house. We then moved on to the Battersea Park zoo, the kids thought it was amazing, especially feeding and petting the animals. We finished off with ice cream and playing ball in Battersea park. What a fun filled day, very tiring but lots of fun. A big thanks to Marie from Models Direct for putting us forward for the job. We look forward to more adventures soon.” – The Burton Family

Fashion Model Vs Commercial Model

Everybody knows about Fashion Models, they are in the press and media constantly and often have celebrity  status’s themselves earning thousands, but what about Commercial Models?? What do they earn and what can you expect?

There is a big difference between fashion and commercial Models, Models Direct represent both, but don’t tend to often work with high fashion models.

The most common form of modelling is commercial modelling, where models advertise and represent products. Commercial models may be used to convey a certain image about a product. The good thing about modelling within this sector is that physical requirements vary depending on the client, assignment and product. Each individual product will require a different image, story and look in order to appeal to their target audience.

It can be difficult to know what commercial models can expect to earn and it can vary hugely! Earnings can change depending on many factors, models experience, length of assignment and client budget. Commercial models can expect to earn anything from £150 to £1000’s !

The Burton’s hit the Beach!

The Models Direct team are delighted for the lovely Burton family who have just recently completed their  3rd assignment with Models Direct!

Family modelling is big at the minute and  ‘real’ families are always best, so the assignments team were so pleased to be able to offer the Burton’s another assignment , this time it was a day at the beach – doesn’t get much better than that!

How lovely to be be paid  to have fun with your family at the beach and get a surfing lesson thrown in too!

Here’s what the family had to say about their  experience:

“We had an amazing time on the video shoot in Swansea with Film Up High, Rob was brilliant and made the experience so much fun.
The best part was having a family surf lesson in Caswell Bay, it was so much fun. We all managed to stand up on our boards too.
The weather was forecast for 12 degrees and showers which was what the production company were hoping for as we were supposed to advertise that you can have fun on the beach whatever the weather but the sun was shining and it was about 17 degrees, which was perfect for us. Rob had to make it rain with his water sprayer.
All in all we had a fantastic time and can’t wait to see what adventures the next assignment will bring.
Thank you Models Direct.” – The Burton Family

This will give you an idea of what is required of you, as well as understanding ‘the product’.
