What is the difference between a show case agency and a modelling employment agency?
This is a question the Models Direct team are often asked by models and appreciate how it can be very confusing especially if you have been overloaded with lots of information from different agencies.
This blog will help you understand what the differences are between the two and highlight the benefits you will recieve as a model being signed with a professional agent – a modelling employment agency like Models Direct.
……Always wanted to be a model, but unsure where to start?
Models Direct team regularly hears this question. Our industry is a minefield with a variety of companies claiming to be modelling agencies, it’s not easy to know who would be most suited to launch your modelling career. The more promises and maybes you read, the less likely they can help. In the first place in the tiny print you’ll read ‘We’re not an agency and therefore don’t find work’. Following that legally required admission, it’s all downhill offering only ‘photos and advice’.
The Summer months are here and the Models Direct bookings team are very busy speaking with brands all over the UK finding them the perfect models for their upcoming campaigns.
This blog gives you a round up of feedback from a selection of models who have been working for the agency this week, the assignment types vary from stills to filming, fee’s and locations – check out how they got on!
