Family Modelling Hit’s An All Time High!

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

#LoveIsland chat at Models Direct

As the Love Island craze sweeps the nation, it has by no means bypassed the Models Direct head office!

In a busy office like ours,  there is plenty of chat  about the general goings  on,  who said what, who’s done what and who needs to be saved (and who should go!!),  it’s all pretty gripping stuff!

What is it we all love about #LoveIsland??

Viewing ratings have soared and broken records, so  it’s clearly a concept that appeals to the majority and offers it’s viewers  something not other programs do!

With Charlie, Eyal and Hayley all being models the Models Direct team have been watching what’s going on and how they come across to an audience,  with their toned physique ‘s and  good looks, they seem to be what alot of viewers aspire to be like possibly, is this  a healthy thing? Is it a true representation of how models are in this industry today?

Models Direct represents all category’s of models, including, fitness, fashion, catalogue and commercial, all  have a variety of shapes, looks and measurements.

Love Island has all the right ingrediants for viewers, fun, laughter, beautiful scenery and of course gorgeous people, all of which is  good escapism from our own lives for a little minute –  it’s very clever, entertaining TV from ITV.

It’s Friday night and with two couples up  for elimination, who are you going to be voting to save??

#NationalBestFriendsDay

‘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.

Fashion Model Vs Commercial Model

Everybody knows about Fashion Models, they are in the press and media constantly and often have celebrity  status’s themselves earning thousands, but what about Commercial Models?? What do they earn and what can you expect?

There is a big difference between fashion and commercial Models, Models Direct represent both, but don’t tend to often work with high fashion models.

The most common form of modelling is commercial modelling, where models advertise and represent products. Commercial models may be used to convey a certain image about a product. The good thing about modelling within this sector is that physical requirements vary depending on the client, assignment and product. Each individual product will require a different image, story and look in order to appeal to their target audience.

It can be difficult to know what commercial models can expect to earn and it can vary hugely! Earnings can change depending on many factors, models experience, length of assignment and client budget. Commercial models can expect to earn anything from £150 to £1000’s !

The Burton’s hit the Beach!

The Models Direct team are delighted for the lovely Burton family who have just recently completed their  3rd assignment with Models Direct!

Family modelling is big at the minute and  ‘real’ families are always best, so the assignments team were so pleased to be able to offer the Burton’s another assignment , this time it was a day at the beach – doesn’t get much better than that!

How lovely to be be paid  to have fun with your family at the beach and get a surfing lesson thrown in too!

Here’s what the family had to say about their  experience:

“We had an amazing time on the video shoot in Swansea with Film Up High, Rob was brilliant and made the experience so much fun.
The best part was having a family surf lesson in Caswell Bay, it was so much fun. We all managed to stand up on our boards too.
The weather was forecast for 12 degrees and showers which was what the production company were hoping for as we were supposed to advertise that you can have fun on the beach whatever the weather but the sun was shining and it was about 17 degrees, which was perfect for us. Rob had to make it rain with his water sprayer.
All in all we had a fantastic time and can’t wait to see what adventures the next assignment will bring.
Thank you Models Direct.” – The Burton Family 

“Friendly, efficient, quick and flexible. Thank you Molly!” – TravelClick

What our  client’s say about us…….

“Molly was very friendly and passionate about the project. She found some good options for us very quickly! ”   –  Fuzzy Duck Creative

“Overall we have had a great experience both with yourself and the models, we always received quick responses and communication was thorough which was helpful in this task.” – Symphony Group

At Models Direct we understand   our clients could take their business anywhere, there are lots of model/talent agents out there!! So  what makes them choose us??

How do Models get work?

Small businesses and large corporations contact Models Direct every day wanting to book male, female, child and baby models for Photo shoots, advertising campaigns, promotions and commercials. We are also seeing a huge increase in enquiries for pet models.

As an international modelling agency we have a wide range of child models right the way through to mature models available to be booked for paid work.

So how do we do it? Firstly, our assignments team listen to precisely what our client is looking for; types of models which can include age range, hair colour, eye colour, ethnicity and of course location for the job and duration, together with a budget.

Once we have this detailed information we can search our database and input all the fields the client has given us. Our bespoke system will then return results of models who may be suitable for the booking. Their ePortfolios are then sent electronically to the client and from that they can decide which models they wish to shortlist and/or book for their event.

“My first assignment for Models Direct went very well! It was a male model wedding shoot for  Sony. I really enjoyed it.  This was my first time I had experience a shoot as a male model. The team were amazing, very friendly and warm . There was a  brilliant atmosphere. Marie is my model agent. She is very professional and explained everything in detail. Thank you so much to Models Direct for this opportunity it was great! I’m looking to do it more! Definitely recommended!”   Jovita

At this point we make contact with the selected models to agree full booking details and importantly what they will earn for taking part.

In most cases there is a minimum of two weeks notice, sometimes we have very short notice and of course it’s always up to the model as to whether they decide to accept or reject any booking offered.

Booking paperwork is sent to the model confirming all these details in writing.

“I recently attended the photography show with  Models Direct. It was a great experience and I had so much fun, it was a pleasure and I’m looking forward to do more shoots.”   Orika

Once the assignment is completed the model fee is then paid to the model or parent/guardian for child and baby models. We love to see behind-the-scenes photos from our models when they’re working and also feedback from them following their success on a modelling job.
