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!
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!
The Assignments team at Models Direct often get enquiries from clients looking for fitting models……What are the requirements for a fitting model?
Being a Fitting Model may not be something you hear about alot, but they are an essential part of the design process for fashion designers and clothing manufacturers. When working as a fitting model or (fit model) you are acting as a live mannequin, the client will want to see what the fit, drape and visual appearance is like of their product on a ‘real’ person.
When you hear the word ‘Modelling’ it’s very likely you imagine, catwalks, film sets and magazine covers……however this is not always the case! (often not!)
At Models Direct we supply models to a huge variety of clients in many different industries, from food to fashion, big brand stores, health services and many more!
Quite often our models are taking on a different role in the photo-shoot or commercial they have been booked for, they could be portraying a family member, doctor, nurse, office worker, patient etc – to be successful in commercial modelling you need to be adaptable and confident in your ability to take on a role and make it appear real!
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.
