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!
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!
Kristina and her family have had great success with Models Direct – on Kristina’s most recent assignment she got to spend the day working with her whole family too!

Female model Frances is a talented musician and model, she plays piano and guitar and writes her own music too, the Models Direct team were delighted to secure her this recent assignment RAC. Frances has a condition called Spina bifida, but doesn’t let that get in the way of following her dreams!!
Most of us can only dream about spending the day dressing up as a bride, not the case for Models Direct’s female model Katherine….
“I recently completed a job with Models Direct for a Bridal show. Their correspondence was extremely prompt and they made sure I had all the relevant information about the booking. The job itself was very enjoyable as the client was both professional and welcoming. I would definitely use Models Direct in the future.”

The Models Direct team are delighted for model Neri who is now getting regular work for Ideal World TV – how amazing!!
Commercial modelling can vary so much, the nature of the assignment can be very different, whatever you are doing it’s essential to get on well with the team you are working with just as Neri has and she now receives repeat bookings form Ideal World TV.
This opportunity that Models Direct offered Neri has been life changing for her and the Models Direct team would now not hesitate to put Neri forward for any kind of television, promotional or photographic assignments.

“Now having regular work with the Ideal World gang has been life changing. They’re all so wonderful to work with and they make it so easy and relaxing to be part of their team.
I worked with guest presenter Stella for the NoNo and it was like working with friends in the end. I’ve made some lifelong friendships here, especially with one of the models and these assignments are an absolute pleasure to do. Thank you Molly for keeping me in touch with them, I highly recommend working with Ideal World at any time.”
