It’s stating the obvious, but the modelling and talent industry is incredibly competitive, however the Models Direct team have successfully matched models to clients for over 28 years now! – So we know what we’re looking for!
If you are thinking of making an application to a modelling agency, it’s really important to consider the following points giving yourself the best possible chance of being noticed and being offered a contract of representation.
2018 is here!!! Are you one for new year resolutions, diets, exercise regimes, new career….. what are your goals for the year ahead….?
A new year can be a super exciting time, but also can be quite daunting! Everyone around you is talking about what they hope the year ahead will hold for them, what they want to achieve and how they will better themselves, it’s a time when most people reevaluate their lives and themselves as people.
For a lot of people the new year is a opportunity to try something new and the Models Direct team get lots of interesting enquiries from clients around the UK with their marketing and campaign briefs for the year ahead. The Assignments team start scouting suitable talent for these roles and compiling shortlists for our clients to consider to make sure they have the right people for their exciting new campaigns, commercials and up and coming brands!
“We really do rate Models Direct, for us it was the best decision we made putting Myleigh forward and now as a family we are doing things together, having fun and getting paid!!” – The Pearce Family
The Assignments Department at Models Direct often get family modelling enquiries from clients looking to book a model family for their latest advertisement, campaign or commercial…..
More often than not it’s the job of the booking coordinator here at Models Direct to search our database and try and find adults and children that look similar or could act as a family and present them to the client for their approval. Obviously this job could be a lot easier if they were actual REAL families!!
“I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism as an agent and for choosing us to be one of the Models Direct models.”
Assignment feedback is always helpful for the Models Direct team to receive from their models after an assignment…….
A lot of time and planning goes into every assignment by one of the booking coordinators at Models Direct. The coordinator will have built up a relationship with the client, will have spent time understanding their requirements and searched for the ideal models to put forward to the client as options – sometimes this can be quite a long winded process!
Pregnant models are in demand for all types of maternity modelling assignments and at all stages of pregnancy. This area of the industry is growing as the demand for maternity products his huge and are becoming more fashionable and available!
Both pre natal modelling and post natal modelling are required for a host of mums to be and baby products, this can lead to mother and baby modelling assignments once baby is born.
Hints and tips for better photos from Models Direct
At Models Direct it is not essential to have professional pictures, we don’t ask our models to have expensive portfolios either, however it is essential to provide us with good, clear, up to date images of yourself, for us to have the best chance of securing you work.
Catalogues such as The Next Directory, Freemans, Kays and Look Again use many models from new born babies, children, teens, male and female models selling everyday products to consumers. Models Direct represent catalogue models and have provided models to well known clothing companies for many years.
Catalogue modelling can provide regular work because of the change in seasons each year which launches new clothing and trends. Pay is usually generous within this sector because of the vast number of images that are taken to display the ranges of clothes stocked by the company. These pictures are displayed in both print and online catalogues.
