This blog is packed full of useful information designed to help you fully understand how Models Direct works and be beneficial to you..
What kind of work does Models Direct offer?
Models Direct represents a diverse variety of talent across the UK and worldwide. Our clients ask us for singers, dancers, models, actors, musicians, pets and promotional staff for work in many areas of the industry including; film, TV, events, fashion shows, photographic shoots, theatre, catalogues, advertising, product launches and promotions.
From plumbing to acting, model Terry has it all in hand…..check out how he got on on a two day filming assignment with Finish Dishwasher.
Commercial modelling brings with it a large range of unique briefs and model requirements, the latest commercial for Finish Dishwasher needed a male model who’s also a fully qualified plumber – not a problem for Models Direct!
Male model Terry successfully secured the two day filming assignment all thanks to his acting abilities and is plumbing qualifications.
Model fee: £500 “Last week I completed an assignment which Charlie helped me secure. It was for a commercial for Finish, advertising the new product line of dishwasher cleaners in the UK 🇬🇧 and in Germany 🇩🇪. I was playing an engineer who was inspecting the inside of a dishwasher and watching the cleaner at work as it produced a shiny clean wine glass. 🍷 I can’t wait to see the final edit to add some amazing shots to me show-reel and see myself on TV 📺 🤩 It was a pleasure to work with the whole production team from the runners, catering staff, producers, creative directors, wardrobe etc. So many people made the experience from start to finish a great one. Looking forward to more and more work with Models direct.”
With such a huge focus on healthy living across the media it is surprising to learn our waistlines are getting bigger and that the plus size clothing market is worth approximately £5 billion and continuously growing…is it any wonder brands are desperately seeking the next top plus-size model?!
Congratulations to model Steve on completing another successful assignment with Models Direct – your feedback is so interesting…..
“I arrived promptly for this photo shoot, having checked in advance the detailed arrangements and dress requirements with the client. As a result I was more than well prepared.
The shoot was at a Care Home with 48 private apartments and would involve indoor and outdoor shots. Photo shoots with clients, staff and other models would be required.
A parking space had been reserved for me which made things much easier in terms of carrying my luggage and props into the venue. – ( a nice touch )
The shoot was fairly advanced when I arrived and the models who were booked for earlier shoots were busy working . After introductions with the photographer and creative director I was briefed and very quickly the shoot was underway.
The clients understanding of the assignment was clear and thus enabled a very efficient shoot. So much so that we finished 3 minutes earlier than scheduled.
Great client, great colleagues, very efficient photographer and wonderful organisation by Charlie from Models Direct and the most hospitable client you could wish for.
These models had such a great time on their recent commercial video shoot for Poundland in Harrogate – check out their reviews…
“Today I had my first experience with Models Direct, which involved public interaction advertising new fragrances. The organisation and communication meant that the day ran smoothly, meaning I felt at ease with the demands of the job in hand. I would definitely recommend the company to others with an interest for this type of work and it would be a pleasure to experience work with the company again in the future.”
OK well ‘stress free’ might be a bit optimistic, but hopefully by following a few of these useful ideas you can relieve a little bit of the seasonal anxiety….
The build up to the big day can be frantic, the pressures are on to make everything perfect, the decorations, the food, the gifts and of course still look your best for all the festivities, why do we stress ourselves out to create the model Christmas??
“Had a fantastic time once again working with Models Direct! Out of all the years I have been modelling, I have never skated for a shoot and for such a brilliant shopping centre! Looking forward to the next one!” – Tyler
Models Direct were delighted to send models and Ice Skaters Tyler, Amy, Naomi, Joseph and Chloe for a very skilled shoot at BlueWater Shopping Centre last week.

Body Positivity is a huge subject in the media at the moment and the drive for more diversity in the fashion and modelling world is becoming more and more apparent!
Models Direct is a commercial modelling and talent agency, therefore we have a more varied demand from our clients for the types of models and talent we represent and have done since the agency was created.
