With the demand for ‘real’ model families continually growing, Models Direct are on the look out for some more to join the books and our latest campaign found one VERY special family…
When casting a family for a campaign or shoot the chemistry is much more natural and easier to work with if it’s a ‘real’ family apposed to a family that has been put together. Model families are used lots in commercial modelling, Models Direct has supplied families to many large household names, holiday companies, brands and also charitable campaigns, the demand is always growing!
Getting your child into the modelling Industry can be very daunting for parents, a mix of emotions and of course as every parent knows you just want your child to have the best opportunities available!!
The Models Direct team have years of experience in talking to anxious parents about the modelling and entertainment industry and how we have yours and your child’s best interest’s at heart throughout the whole process.
Family modelling is such an exciting opportunity, to have fun with your family and be paid for it!! The beautiful Golding family have had such fun on their assignments with Models Direct – here’s what Coral had to say about their experience’s so far…!
“We did a family shoot last week in London and everyone was so lovely! It was really chilled for the kids and we all really enjoyed ourselves. Would definitely recommend Models Direct!” – This is from their recent assignment with Sanctuary Housing.
“Thank you so much for the opportunity to attend! I hope there’s many more to come!”
Massive congratulations to Erem from the Models Direct team! Erem recently got his first modelling job – amazing! Erem was selected to be a promotional model for the launch night of a large hotel, great experience and fab feedback!
“I Would just like to say a massive thank you to the modelling team for helping me get my first job. Everything from start to finish on the job was amazing and I couldn’t be happier with the end result. 100% communication and helpful throughout!”
“Many thanks for a lovely day yesterday. Everyone had a fun time and got on really well together – I hope the client was pleased too.”
“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.”
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.

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
“In character for a large well known high street bank….“
“Myself and 2 other models/actors spent the day shooting a commercial for a Santander UK group pension scheme. The shots showcased family fun, in which I played the daughter role. We filmed a variety of different scenes including shopping at Greenwich market, drinking coffee at a cafe and walking along the Thames. This was my first job with the agency and I received excellent guidance from Marie. I was prepped well before the shooting date with all the necessary information. The day of shoot itself was efficiently organised and run professionally. A fantastic experience!”
“Yet again another fab day on an assignment for Models Direct. We have had a brilliant day on our photo shoot for a Santander Pensions brochure.
Meqele, Ben and Simon all looked after us really well and made the day so much fun. We started our day in a home environment, baking and having fun in and around the house. We then moved on to the Battersea Park zoo, the kids thought it was amazing, especially feeding and petting the animals. We finished off with ice cream and playing ball in Battersea park. What a fun filled day, very tiring but lots of fun. A big thanks to Marie from Models Direct for putting us forward for the job!”
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.
Models Direct’sInstagram account is updated daily with real pictures of our models on assignment, new faces joining the books and lots of fun and interesting model feedback videos! There are also a few of the Models Direct team working hard to promote you and daily head office goings on too!
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.”
