Models Direct is a company with plenty of success stories from both current and past models– here are Hilary and Rebecca’s accounts of their jobs with the agency.
Hilary’s first assignment was for a holiday park photography shoot with two other models – she and the others were photographed taking part in the park’s various activities for the company brochure. Although she was initially nervous, Hilary found the experience at Models Direct to be fantastic – she and the other models, Marc and Herb got along well and the photographer put them at ease straight away. For the shoot itself, Hilary had to be photographed cycling, relaxing with a drink, and walking along the beach with her ‘husband’, the other male model. Hilary remarked that the whole day was surprisingly relaxed, and she soon found herself comfortable in front of the camera. She had joined Models Direct because she had wanted to take part in work which was entirely different from her former day job at an office, and has said that as a result how much she enjoyed her first shoot, she is eager to work on more assignments in the future. Hilary also added that the work had done wonders for her confidence, and that she was very glad of the opportunity to meet new people and take part in such an interesting job.
Rebecca had a similarly positive experience with her assignment for Models Direct. She found the photographer to be warm and very professional, which helped to ease her initial nerves. Rebecca had taken part in informal photo shoots before, but because this was her first job with Models Direct, she did feel slightly apprehensive before the shoot. However she soon found herself feeling relaxed and confident in front of the camera, and is now eager to take part in further assignments. The shoot itself was set in a room with a little stage on the centre, and cameras set up from several different angles – there were three clothing changes in total. Taking part in this type of work was a dream of Rebecca’s for a long time, and she was delighted to find that she genuinely enjoyed the experience
