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…..
“Within my first 6 months with the agency they had got me 5 different jobs!”
“I originally joined Models Direct in September 2016, and I was really pleased with how simple the process was to set up my profile, and how helpful all the team at Models Direct were. Within my first 6 months with the agency they had got me 5 different jobs: A commercial for Matched Bet, an online video for the Vena Software System, an advert for Taylor Wimpey Homes, a commercial for Feel Good Contact Lenses and a bridal shoot.
I then had to leave Models Direct for 8 months while I had a full-time presenting contract, but as soon as the contract finished I knew I wanted to re-join the agency; and within only a couple of weeks, I already had been booked on another photoshoot.
I originally trained and worked as a professional dancer, before moving into the world of Commercials, TV and Presenting. In such a competitive industry full of a lot of talent, it’s rare to find an agency that are so easy to talk to and who you know are actively seeking you great work. I have enjoyed every shoot I’ve had through Models Direct and look forward to working for them again soon.”

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!
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.
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
