Congratulations to model Steve on completing another successful assignment with Models Direct – your feedback is so interesting…..
“I arrived promptly for this photo shoot, having checked in advance the detailed arrangements and dress requirements with the client. As a result I was more than well prepared.
The shoot was at a Care Home with 48 private apartments and would involve indoor and outdoor shots. Photo shoots with clients, staff and other models would be required.
A parking space had been reserved for me which made things much easier in terms of carrying my luggage and props into the venue. – ( a nice touch )
The shoot was fairly advanced when I arrived and the models who were booked for earlier shoots were busy working . After introductions with the photographer and creative director I was briefed and very quickly the shoot was underway.
The clients understanding of the assignment was clear and thus enabled a very efficient shoot. So much so that we finished 3 minutes earlier than scheduled.
Great client, great colleagues, very efficient photographer and wonderful organisation by Charlie from Models Direct and the most hospitable client you could wish for.
Aspiring models can often be confused in exactly what a commercial model is and what requirements a commercial modelling agency will be looking for – Models Direct are a commercial modelling agency and explain what their dedicated team are looking for on a daily basis.
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!

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’.
