If you have recently been watching The Voice Kids, you will understand the emotions parents go through when watching their precious child audition for their dream opportunity….
It can be a roller coaster of emotions for a parent throughout the whole process and the rejection can be tough! At Models Direct we do not send you on lots of castings with your children, however some clients will only select child models if they attend the casting. So here are Models Direct top tips to surviving it!
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!
Us Brits spend most of the year praying for a hot Summer, but when it comes to dressing for it, how are you keep cool and on trend this season??
We have certainly been blessed with some serious Summer heat so far this year and it’s a treat, long evenings, picnics, beach days and of course the chance to wear all those beautiful Summer dresses, however for some staying cool and being on trend can be quite a challenge.
The shops are full of amazing Summer fashions which are now making their way into even more enticing Summer Sales, here’s Models Direct ‘s Summer favourites!
The highly experienced Models Direct team are with you every step of the way!
Child modelling work can be a rewarding experience for children and parents. Whilst we all think our own children are cute and adorable, kids of all ages, shapes and sizes are required for modelling work. Models Direct have clients who are always looking for children, both boys and girls to model for their latest campaign!
Models Direct’s agents explain daily the importance of making the best of your online portfolio, it’s what the client’s see when you are put forward for potential work, so how can you make sure you stand out above the rest?
Photographs: – It is surprising how many models do not update their photographs once they are on the books. Your application pictures may have been good, but when being put forward to clients it’s important to have a variety of great shots, to show your personality and how versatile you are infront of the camera. Keeping your photographs seasonal can also make a big difference too, if a client is viewing you in a search during the Summer months seeing you wrapped up in the snow isn’t ideal, so be sure to update your photographs as the seasons change! Regular updates also means that if any of your looks have changed, ie; hair, weight, tattoos/piercings etc , clients are viewing you as you are at that moment which is essential if you are then selected for the assignment. Make sure your photographs are clear, taken in natural light and have a plain background, this will make you stand out and more likely to catch a client’s eye when they are sourcing the next face for their new campaign!
It’s that time of year again, whether you like tennis or not it’s difficult not to catch the Wimbledon bug in some way! So for such a big event it’s important to have Models Direct’s beauty must haves…
The Summer months are busy, full of social events, this can take it’s toll on our skin. Lack of sleep, dehydration and sun burn are all factors which can have a harmful effect on our appearance, so the Models Direct beauty team have put together their firm favourites to help keep your hair and skin in tip top condition.
In this sizzling Summer heatwave are you protecting your skin??
In all the excitement to see the sun and feel the warmth it can be easy to forget to protect our skin, so the Models Direct beauty team have put together some helpful reminders on how to remain safe in the sun while of course achieving a gorgeous sunkissed glow!
There is lots of information in the media about how harmful UVA/UVB rays are to our skin and with longer expsire times to it in the Summer months it’s really important to protect your skin from them. Too much sun can age a person and cause discolouration to the skin, this is something models are particularly careful of and will use a high factor suncream and avoid too much sun.
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
