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!

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

‘It’s not that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but it’s your best friends who are your diamonds.’ – Gina Barreca
Friends are essential in life, whether you choose to have a special few or you’re one of those people who have friends all round the world, they all offer us different things!
We see our colleagues every day and probably spend more time with them than our families in some cases, so it’s lovely when you have ‘work friends’ too. Models Direct’s head office is predominately female, we rely on each other for support, advice and of course humour when times are stressful or difficult, it’s great to have a strong team of people around you who you can call your friends.
With the holiday season fast approaching, families are getting super excited about their holiday plans , whether you are visiting family, a city break or a long haul adventure it all means one thing – travelling with children!!
So to help you out the Models Direct team, of which a large percentage are parents, have compiled their top tips to make travelling with kids that little bit easier!
Our junior models also often have to travel for assignments , generally within in the UK, but sometimes it means going in a plane and travelling further afield, so what ever your reason for travel it helps to be a little bit organised and take the stress away.
Securing an assignment is a very exciting time and if it’s your first assignment it can seem a little overwhelming…..
The Models Direct team have put together their top tips to help you be at your best on your assignment, here are a few useful things to remember:
Get as much information as you can about the company you will be representing. It is useful to have an idea of what is expected of you on your model assignment. Most companies will have a website you can use to get some details, or your agency may have a visual of the shots they are looking for. This will give you an idea of what is required of you, as well as understanding ‘the product’.
The internet has changed dramatically over the last few years, particularly social media and the ability we now have to promote ourselves online, you could ask…..Why have an agent??
Models Direct has been established for nearly 30 years and has seen how the modelling & talent industry has evolved and why it’s now more important than EVER to be with a professional agency – here’s why:
Have you ever wondered what it involves being a Booking Agent at an International talent agency like Models Direct…..

Modelling is an incredibly competitive industry, with lots of different agents all competing to get their models/talent noticed and seen by influential people, production companies, advertising agencies and casting directors – this is no easy job!
It’s super important to make sure the pictures Models Direct are representing you with show you at your best!!
You may feel that you have kept them up to date, but remember when you are being put forward to clients it is along side other models, so to give yourself the best opportunity of being selected you need great pics!
Also our looks change, hair colour & length, size, tatoos, facial hair, etc. It is essential that junior and babies pics are updated every 3 to 4 months to represent them as they grow.
Models Direct is designed so you have control of your e-portfolio and therefore can log in and update your pics , add more to show how versatile you are , also add showreels and videos!
Modelling is competitive so if your determined to make it, then give yourself the best possible shot at it!!
