We have all heard this very familiar phrase and in a time when we are all permanently glued to our smartphones you may be surprised to hear it’s harder than ever to get models to answer them – the Models Direct team explain why!!
Herb is one of the more experienced and senior male models at Models Direct, having started his modelling career at 24, he is still modelling at 82!
“When I first received this assignment from Charlie at Models Direct I rubbed my hands together, only twenty miles to drive and on my birthday, what more could I ask for!
The shoot was for First City Nursing Services start time 11am and as I said only a short distance to drive. After eventually locating the shoot site, my Sat.Nav getting itself in a twist before my contact the charming Debbie came to my aid and collected me from my car, not a great start to what turned out to be a most enjoyable day.
Meeting the residents and the very helpful care staff and my fellow models made it a very pleasant shoot to be part of, with work both inside and outside on an overcast and drizzly day but everybody’s spirits were high and we all enjoyed working together.
This was the first assignment I have received from Charlie who has been very helpful and patient with me especially my complete lack of understanding of modern technology, thank you Charlie for such a great present on my birthday!”
If you think you have a mini supermodel or little superstar on your hands then the Models Direct team can’t wait to hear from you….
With applications from parents of wanna-be child models on the rise, the Models Direct team spend alot of time talking to parents of young babies right through to early teens, getting to know them and understanding why they want to get into the glamorous life of child modelling!
‘As a model it’s important to inform your agent about your online presence, if this is not something they have already asked then make sure they have your Instagram handle and following numbers – this is all really important information that your agent, Models Direct, can use when trying to secure you assignments and negotiating your rate.’

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.
Securing work as an extra in a film, TV show, commercial or stage/musical performance is very exciting! It’s a step in the door to get the opportunity to work in the industry and make the contacts you need to progress.
An extra normally appears in a nonspeaking or nonsinging capacity and usually in the background of a particular scene, some productions require large amounts of extras and other only need a few it completely depends on the project and the overall look.
Models Direct provides extras for many different clients in the industry and recently Molly from the Models Direct assignments team has been organising 50+ extra’s, adults and children for a large period drama film, being shot in Southampton – super exciting!
This week we have Dhruv, Rianna, Saheel, Jake, Sohaila & Zain from Models Direct on set and working with the production team, they will be acting different parts and are super excited to land a role in such a big movie that will be in our cinema’s soon!
The demand for animals in advertising is big and growing all the time! With only seconds to capture your audience’s attention, a witty comment or a cute animal works well!
We have all seen animals used in commercials for lots of different brands and high street stores. Buster the Boxer in the John Lewis Christmas commercial, McDonalds, Perina Dog Food, Whiskers…..the list goes on!
