One of our newest model families on the Models Direct’s books gives us an insight into their experience so far…
“Our experience with Models Direct has been so positive so far! We initially came into contact through my sister in law (and business partner) who was chosen to be a part of a shoot for a huge global tech company. Our whole family ended up being involved and from start to finish the whole process was so enjoyable and professional. The shoot was over two days and was so well organised and we were so looked after that it didn’t even feel like work! It was so fun!
Models Direct were really thorough but also really approachable and friendly, I was so grateful to be a part of such a huge campaign and my daughter Ava had a wonderful day!
A few weeks later our family then got offered to do a video shoot for Yale’s new home security system. The shoot was such a pleasure to be a part of, the house was AMAZING and super child friendly with loads of toys that the girls could play with (which made it so much easier) and the team were so down to earth and friendly. They made us feel so relaxed and comfortable and it all went so quickly!
From both our experiences I could only say positive things about Models Direct. Working with young children on photo shoots can sometimes be so stressful, but everything was really well thought out on both occasions and I would definitely recommend to other families looking to work in the industry.”
Getting paid to travel the world is a thing of dreams for most people, but it is possible with Models Direct!
“Told only that if successful the shoot would take place in Finland and and that the client a major film industry producer were willing to pay my full travel expenses and fee, I had to find out what it was all about.” – LUKE
Being an international agency the Models Direct Assignments team get enquiries from companies and production agencies all over the world, looking to source the ideal model for their latest campaign.

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!!
When a child model is selected for an assignment it’s essential that parent and child feel completely and have all the details they may need about the assignment, check out how our model Freya got on at her recent assignment in Cambridge for a large safety awareness campaign!
“I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism as an agent and for choosing us to be one of the Models Direct models.”
We would like to express our gratitude for making our daughter’s first ever assignment so enjoyable for us all, we really didn’t know what to expect as this is a completely new adventure for our family. From the moment you rang us letting us know that Freya was shortlisted for the assignment until the actual photoshoot and beyond, we felt valued, reassured, comfortable and very well informed about the process step by step. When we arrived at the venue, there was a lovely representative of Models Direct
that greeted us and the waiting room was very welcoming. The most important thing for us was that our daughter was happy with the photoshoot and comfortable in that environment and I can honestly say that she really enjoyed her experience. Everyone was so friendly and our daughter was full of smiles although your client needed a serious facial expression for their campaign :).
We got there eventually! I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism as an agent and for choosing us to be one of the Models Direct

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.
The modelsdirect.com website has undergone a ‘facelift’ and we are super pleased with it!
