A very exciting female empowerment collaboration took place in Liverpool last week and Models Direct were delighted to provide the models who were certainly given a day to remember….
Models Direct’s booking agent Charlie, coordinated the models for an exciting collaboration of two big brands, the brief from the client was they wanted ‘real’ women all with different hair types and based in the Liverpool area – no problem!!
With the demand for ‘real’ model families continually growing, Models Direct are on the look out for some more to join the books and our latest campaign found one VERY special family…
When casting a family for a campaign or shoot the chemistry is much more natural and easier to work with if it’s a ‘real’ family apposed to a family that has been put together. Model families are used lots in commercial modelling, Models Direct has supplied families to many large household names, holiday companies, brands and also charitable campaigns, the demand is always growing!
‘As a model it’s important to inform your agent about your online presence, if this is not something they have already asked then make sure they have your Instagram handle and following numbers – this is all really important information that your agent, Models Direct, can use when trying to secure you assignments and negotiating your rate.’
It was a first for both models Tharj and Emelie last week on their photographic assignment for one of the UK’s largest shopping centre’s – modelling an exciting new app, Models Direct were delighted to be able to offer this experience to this model pair….
Check out the model reviews below:
“I’ve just finished my assignment with Models Direct and what an experience. From start to finish it was organised, the communication was great and everyone who was a part of this assignment/photoshoot was amazing! If you’re looking to get into the modelling industry I would highly recommend Models Direct” – Tharj
“Recently did a shoot for Models Direct and it went great. Worked with a lovely team and had a lot of fun shooting outside (even though it was freezing haha). Great agency and very efficient, can’t wait to work for them again.” – Emelie
‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ has just kicked off for 2018 and the Models Direct team can’t get enough – have you been sucked in to the jungle antics yet?
With this years launch episode drawing in the highest number of viewers for 5 years, it’s said that nearly 11 million of us tuned in on Sunday night to see Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly present the start of the 18th series of ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’, along with an incredible celebrity line up!
With household names such as John Barrowman, Anne Hegarty, Nick Knowles and many others settling into jungle life it’s clear ITV have pulled out all the stops this year to ensure a ‘must see’ series and the Models Direct team are delighted!
Fashion is a big subject in the modelling industry, it’s also big talk in the Models Direct office, so we were pretty keen to see what outfits Holly would be modelling and she didn’t disappoint……she looked amazing in the short, belted black dress and the amazing boots from Grenson Shoes – great combo! The Models Direct Instagram account will be keeping a close eye on #hwjunglestyle for all the outfit inspiration.
Watching actress Emily Atack brave the first bush tucker trial was tough viewing, she was so brave, taking on the Viper Pit, being the first celebrity to do a bush tucker trial is unthinkable for most of us – Congratulations to her!
Models Direct will be watching and letting you know our favourite jungle moments, so let us know yours too!
The final commercial for Hasbro Toys in now LIVE featuring our models Steve, Shai, Scarlett and Jayana….. we can’t wait to share it with you…..
Models Direct were delighted to offer the opportunity to these lucky models to star in the latest online commercial for the American multinational toy and board game company, Hasbro! One of the largest toy makers in the world……Pretty cool!
Don’t forget to keep sending new photographs into Models Direct, they are what represent you to our clients and there is always room for improvement with pictures – so keep snapping away!
Here’s a few helpful tips to help you get some great pics:
- For natural shots the key to to keep the shoot time to a minimum, if you over think it it may appear forced and now show your true character. This is particularly the case if you are photographing children, they don’t sit still for long and the ultimate shot is when you capture their natural smiles!
- Make sure the picture is taken at eye level or slightly from above, this will avoid the double chins and is a more flattering angle to shoot from.
- Be careful what you have in the background, you don’t want the washing line as a backdrop, an untidy room or other people in the frame.
- Babies and children are cute when they are eating, but a modelling agency does not need pictures of babies and toddlers with food round their mouths, we are unable to put them forward to clients so please make sure your child has a clean face in pics.
- Use natural, outdoor locations, the light will be more complimentary and the background more professional.
- When photographing close up, use the zoom on the camera rather than going in too close.
- When uploading images to your online portfolio make sure they are not too small as when they are included in searches they can become pixalated and not of a high quality.
Don’t worry about trying to make every photograph completely perfect, have fun with it and don’t be scared to show your personality and character in the shots, this is a factor clients look for when selecting models for commercial purposes!
