“When I first received this assignment from Charlie at Models Direct I rubbed my hands together, only twenty miles to drive and on my birthday, what more could I ask for!
The shoot was for First City Nursing Services start time 11am and as I said only a short distance to drive. After eventually locating the shoot site, my Sat.Nav getting itself in a twist before my contact the charming Debbie came to my aid and collected me from my car, not a great start to what turned out to be a most enjoyable day.
Meeting the residents and the very helpful care staff and my fellow models made it a very pleasant shoot to be part of, with work both inside and outside on an overcast and drizzly day but everybody’s spirits were high and we all enjoyed working together.
This was the first assignment I have received from Charlie who has been very helpful and patient with me especially my complete lack of understanding of modern technology, thank you Charlie for such a great present on my birthday!”
If you think you have a mini supermodel or little superstar on your hands then the Models Direct team can’t wait to hear from you….
With applications from parents of wanna-be child models on the rise, the Models Direct team spend alot of time talking to parents of young babies right through to early teens, getting to know them and understanding why they want to get into the glamorous life of child modelling!
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….
