If you’re looking to get into the modelling industry I would highly recommend Models Direct” – Tharj

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!
The media and film industry always needs supporting artists, extras! It’s a great way into the industry and means you might get to share the set with A list movie stars!!
You have probably wondered at some point where all the people come from in the background of films, commercials and TV Drama’s, they are not there by coincidence – they are extras! Models Direct represent Extra’s to the film and TV industry!

Brands are launching advertising campaigns all the time, they are designed to achieve a goal by influencing the public into buying into an idea, service or product!
To do this they need to be relateable and feature ‘real people’ for the consumer to be able to picture themselves in that situation, so commercial models are often booked to feature in advertising campaigns. Models Direct have supplied lots of models to brands for advertising campaigns and often it is regular work.
The Models Direct team are always talking about how it’s so important for commercial models to be able to act and show different personalities, often it’s required for a model to play a role and be photographed at the same time! This was exactly the case for a recent shoot our models did for Axis Security.
Steve, Janos and Ellen were all selected to do a promotional shoot for Axis Security Group. They were given different roles to play and were then photographed while in character – quite a challenge, but they all did brilliantly and were very professional.
“I modelled for Axis Security for the day. The location was in central London (Piccadilly Circus) the shoot involved six of us playing various roles with photos being taken in different parts of the clients buildings. Photos were taken of myself and two other models posing as security officers in a friendly manner, talking to customers and checking their I.D’s. We also had some photos taken of us patrolling the outside area of the buildings acting as though we were on our radio’s. I had a great time with the other models and crew members were also very friendly and easy to get along with, which helps towards being relaxed for the shoot. It feels great to be back working for Models Direct and look forward to many more assignments with them. ” – Steve
