Size Doesn’t Matter After All

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?!

“Great client, great colleagues, very efficient photographer!”

Congratulations to model Steve on completing another successful assignment with Models Direct – your feedback is so interesting…..

MODEL FEEDBACK

“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.

I would highly recommend Models Direct. Thanks Charlie”

Dream Big with Models Direct

 “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them” – Walt Disney

NEW YEAR, NEW START….. or are new year resolutions not your thing?!

It’s that time of year when we reflect on our own highs and lows of 2018, what we did well, where we could improve and what we still would like to achieve, big questions, but do we need to make such big changes??

Is Modelling Good For Your Health?

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!”

August’s Guest Blogger!

“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.”
