From plumbing to acting, model Terry has it all in hand…..check out how he got on on a two day filming assignment with Finish Dishwasher.
Commercial modelling brings with it a large range of unique briefs and model requirements, the latest commercial for Finish Dishwasher needed a male model who’s also a fully qualified plumber – not a problem for Models Direct!
Male model Terry successfully secured the two day filming assignment all thanks to his acting abilities and is plumbing qualifications.
Model fee: £500 “Last week I completed an assignment which Charlie helped me secure. It was for a commercial for Finish, advertising the new product line of dishwasher cleaners in the UK 🇬🇧 and in Germany 🇩🇪. I was playing an engineer who was inspecting the inside of a dishwasher and watching the cleaner at work as it produced a shiny clean wine glass. 🍷 I can’t wait to see the final edit to add some amazing shots to me show-reel and see myself on TV 📺 🤩 It was a pleasure to work with the whole production team from the runners, catering staff, producers, creative directors, wardrobe etc. So many people made the experience from start to finish a great one. Looking forward to more and more work with Models direct.”
With such a huge focus on healthy living across the media it is surprising to learn our waistlines are getting bigger and that the plus size clothing market is worth approximately £5 billion and continuously growing…is it any wonder brands are desperately seeking the next top plus-size model?!
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.
Health and modelling often go hand in hand, with the media continually scrutinizing models figures, whatever their size, it’s hard to know what lengths models will go to to reach their body goals.
Modelling opens up the opportunity for positive and negative judgments about your appearance and body, for experienced models this is part of the course and something they have grown used to, but for others it can take it’s toll!

“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!”
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!
‘It’s not that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but it’s your best friends who are your diamonds.’ – Gina Barreca
Friends are essential in life, whether you choose to have a special few or you’re one of those people who have friends all round the world, they all offer us different things!
We see our colleagues every day and probably spend more time with them than our families in some cases, so it’s lovely when you have ‘work friends’ too. Models Direct’s head office is predominately female, we rely on each other for support, advice and of course humour when times are stressful or difficult, it’s great to have a strong team of people around you who you can call your friends.
