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.
When did you last receive exciting post??
These days it is generally junk mail and bills that tend to be waiting on the mat for us when we get home, so imagine how delighted these models were when they came home to Models Direct post!!
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
“Many thanks for the Models Direct

“Excellent communication from Models Direct for my assignment in Greenwich. Lots of notice of what to do and where to be so I felt very confident on the day. Really nice client who we spent the day with completing lots of shots for an internal promotion scheme…easy to follow direction, clear ideas regarding images and location, patient approach to the end. Really impressed all round with the client and the agency – looking forward to more to come in the future.”
Fantastic feedback from Models Direct’s male model Gavin!
Gavin has a very versatile look and is confident infront of the camera, this comes across really well from his portfolio as the variety of photographs he has shows his personality and the different roles he could model for, which is so important when going forward to clients.

“On Wednesday I had my first assignment through Models Direct. We did 2 commercials for Pukka Pads. One was for a Pukka Fun Colouring Book where we used iPads to scan it and it would come to life and it was really cool. The second one was for hs really cool putty and I had just an amazing time.” – Zane

Holly has the most amazing smile, so the Models Direct team were delighted she was given the opportunity to show it off!
“The day has boosted Holly’s confidence, as she just loves making people smile.”
“Holly really enjoyed her day having her photograph taken. She was made to feel the centre of attention which she loved, so would definitely like to do this sort of thing again. Holly had to pose as a customer with her ‘mum’ and visit a car showroom to choose a new car. She enjoyed sitting in the car and pretending to drive. The day has boosted Holly’s confidence, as she just loves making people smile. We’d definitely recommend doing this to anyone who asked, but you must be confident. This is the first role Holly has had with Models Direct, and we hope it is the first of many more. This is something which Holly could potentially consider as a career when she is older, if she decides to continue.” Alison, Holly’s Mum

“Models Direct got me an assignment with Bracket Films for a Nokia commercial. I had to travel all the way from Paddington to Reading, but once we got to the station and meet the crew, we were taken care of with smiles and abundant coffee. The whole filming process was fun and I got to play multiple roles, from a normal commuting adolescent to a busking guitarist. It ended slightly later than expected but nonetheless they cared about us from start to finish.”
