Hearing what models have to say about their assignment experience is amazing and so useful – a real insight to what it’s like working as a commercial model!
“At first I was really nervous because this was my first assignment – it turned out to be not that scary though! It was such a fun day and I met great people, one of which was a Models Direct model. We had to have shots taken for Solent Forts Hotel, and present its features in the best way. It was such a pleasure to spend the day in such a beautiful place! I had a great time on my first photo shoot, and now I am sure that I made the best choice to become a model.” – Simona
“Thanks to Models Direct I was given another assignment. I had a lot of laughs, fun with the other models & made new friends.” – Luke
For a men it can be difficult to know what an agency is looking for in a male model, What is important? What physique is best? How tall do I need to be? What kind of modelling would I be suitable for?
Recently there’s been some interesting articles in the media about modelling, what it takes to be a model and the expectations of models today in what is an incredibly competitive, driven and controversial industry….. with 28yrs experience Models Direct are now having their say!
There are lots of differences between fashion modelling and commercial modelling, however there are many similarities too. Trends and fashions come and go and this is the same for the type of models clients and designers are looking to book too. Clients will be looking for models who have the appropriate look, shape or character to portray their product/service in the most productive and effective way and appeal to their consumer. A model is someone the consumer aspires to be, so therefore great consideration is taken by a client when booking models for their latest campaign.
Most girls have thought about what their wedding dress would be like, whether you want the big white wedding or something simpler, the most important factor is……the dress!!
The wedding industry is huge! There are so many suppliers all over the world who are all fighting to get their product or service recognised and noticed. Whether it be wedding venues, cars, caterers or jewelers, they all need a model bridal couple to promote their brand and stand out above the rest.
Models Direct have provided lots of models to pose as couples for bridal shoots, we have even had a couple of our own Models Direct weddings!! When a client contacts the team at Models Direct looking for a suitable couple to promote their brand, they may have specific requirements in mind, the couple need to look genuine and work as a couple. Factors to consider may be ethnicity, age, gender and location – Models Direct like to offer diversity and options when they propose a selection of models to a client, so it’s then down to the client to match make!
