Is September like a ‘New Year’ for you?? Is it a time to reevaluate your life choices and of course your style?
At Models Direct’s Head Office September feels like a ‘New Year’ because with it comes with alot of change – returning to work after Summer holidays, children back to school, change of temperature, there’s a new focus and an opportunity to progress and better ourselves – often this requires a new wardrobe and a few select key pieces to see us into the colder months ahead!
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!!
Today Models Direct have assignments taking place in Peterborough, Milton Keynes and Exeter!! – We can promote you nationally and worldwide!!
Unlike alot of agencies Models Direct works on a International scale, so the Assignments team are able to promote our models to clients across the country and worldwide!
If you have recently been watching The Voice Kids, you will understand the emotions parents go through when watching their precious child audition for their dream opportunity….
It can be a roller coaster of emotions for a parent throughout the whole process and the rejection can be tough! At Models Direct we do not send you on lots of castings with your children, however some clients will only select child models if they attend the casting. So here are Models Direct top tips to surviving it!
The focus of a headshot photograph is just the persons face, it’s a critical part of a portfolio for a model, actor and all performance professionals.
A good headshot picture can really be a deal breaker when it comes to a client selecting you or not.
So how can you make sure you have the perfect headshot’s on your portfolio? Here are some top tips from the Models Direct team:
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!
The highly experienced Models Direct team are with you every step of the way!
Child modelling work can be a rewarding experience for children and parents. Whilst we all think our own children are cute and adorable, kids of all ages, shapes and sizes are required for modelling work. Models Direct have clients who are always looking for children, both boys and girls to model for their latest campaign!
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!
