“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.”

Laughter is the best medicine

We are told laughter is the best medicine, but if you’re not feeling it how can you laugh for the camera?

Whenever you see a model laughing on the front page of a magazine, you should remember that they are acting. This side of modelling is often forgotten as people don’t look past the smile and wonder what kind of day they might be having, or what they did after the shoot. They may well have got up before sunrise and travelled miles to a photo shoot, perhaps unwell, not feeling themselves or be dealing with any other of life’s challenges!

How to make the BEST of your online portfolio

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 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.
