“I hope to promote diversity and inclusion as a wheelchair user in more campaigns such as this in the future!” – Alex
Models Direct have been involved with many campaigns and shoots featuring disable models and we hope we can be involved in many more – here’s what our #malemodel Alex had to say after recently working with Heathrow Airport:
“Hi, I have just had a fabulous experience on my first assignment with Models Direct, courtesy of Molly at Models Direct and working with Ingenious on behalf of Heathrow Airport.
Natalie met me on arrival, such a lovely lady, offering refreshments and kept me posted on the time frame and set up status of equipment etc. We started promptly at noon, Steve and Magnus, the team responsible for the shots, were great, made me feel relaxed and confident. We had an initial chat then onto some shots before an informal interview whilst being pictured.
The whole experience was simple from start to finish, everywhere was of course accessible, parking was easy, directions and contact info all provided, just very very easy. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience, and hope to promote diversity and inclusion as a wheelchair user in more campaigns such as this in the future. Many thanks to everyone involved in the selection process, it’s been a privilege – Thank you!”
The Assignments Department at Models Direct is a hive of activity and with a room of dedicated Talent Booking Agents talking to clients across the country….it’s noisy!!
Client feedback is very important to us at Models Direct, being a Booking Agent isn’t easy, it’s competitive and hard at times, so when when the team receive feedback like this, it makes it all worth while…..
Commercial models are often required to play a role while being photographed or filmed, this can be awkward for some, but not for models Alicia and Terry!
The final images the Models Direct team have received from a recent shoot with Caldecotte Lake Business Park are fantastic, both models Alicia and Terry did an incredible job!
Today Models Direct have assignments taking place in Peterborough, Milton Keynes and Exeter!! – We can promote you nationally and worldwide!!
Unlike alot of agencies Models Direct works on a International scale, so the Assignments team are able to promote our models to clients across the country and worldwide!
“Within my first 6 months with the agency they had got me 5 different jobs!”
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!
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!
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
