“Yesterday’s family job for a Swedish vacuum company was great fun. It was a long day, but the crew were funny and it was totally relaxing. We love doing jobs together as a family and the kids are getting so used to it now. Thanks to Charlie at Models Direct for this booking.”
Family modelling is such a great way to spend time together and have fun while being paid. If you think you and your family have what it takes to be our next model family click here.
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.”
How did the boy with no brain end up featuring in not only in a Channel 5 documentary but also modelling in a major supermarkets Christmas TV campaign? The answer is with determination, support and a little help from Models Direct modelling agency. Read the story of Models Direct’s Noah, a remarkable young boy, who continues to deify doctors.
Female Model Janina tells us what it is like working for Models Direct modelling:
“It was a really interesting and fun day. I was very well briefed beforehand by Talent Management with regards to clothing and location so I felt very confident with what I was expected to do on the day. The photographer made everyone feel at ease and was very professional – he had a lovely manner. We all had a great time doing the shoot. I would love to do it all again, and I highly recommend Talent Management as an agency.”
Models Direct were over the moon to see Britain’s most successful model family the Phillips in The Daily Mail, Mirror and Express this week.
The Welsh family of six – Jason (41) Michelle (30) Louis (15) Luca (5) Cobie (3) and 10-month-old Evie Philips – have had numerous starring roles in a variety of commercials and adverts. They have worked for Cheltenham & Gloucester Building Society, Audi, Cadbury, Mercedes, Zirtek Hayfever Tablets, Thomson, Disney and many other top brand companies over the years.
This model family the Phillips are so popular that they often model up to eight times a month together – earning up to £6,000 an assignment. Not only do they get paid well and have fun they even get to travel to exotic places such as Barbados, Majorca, the Maldives and Austria.
Mr Phillips started modelling at the age of 16 and later decided to get his family involved, ‘It’s the easiest job in the world, the money’s fantastic, I travel to some of the most beautiful places on earth with my family and I enjoy every part of it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. All my children enjoy doing it together. We’re like a Welsh version of the Waltons.’
So why are they the most sought-after modelling family? It’s all down to the chemistry… industry experts believe the chemistry of a real family is much more appealing and makes for better adverts than a group of strangers brought together for the day.
