“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!”
The Karlsen family have been successfully selected for numerous assignments with Models Direct now, so yesterdays shoot with Electrolux was just another working day for them….!

“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.”

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!

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!”
