“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 discussion of how people with disabilities are represented in the media is an interesting one and with some big brands like M&S, River Island and Boots embracing diversity, Models Direct have to still ask…is it enough??
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…..
As the Summer holidays start to draw to an end, parents may well be taking a big sigh of relief, or perhaps not – how have you survived the Summer Holidays??
The Models Direct team would love to hear how you’ve survived the school holidays and if you’ve discovered any new exciting activities that your children have particularly enjoyed that don’t cost the earth!!
“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.”
