Are you happy with how you’re being represented?

Don’t forget to keep sending new photographs into Models Direct, they are what represent you to our clients and there is always room for improvement with pictures – so keep snapping away!

Here’s a few helpful tips to help you get some great pics:

  • For natural shots the key to to keep the shoot time to a minimum, if you over think it it may appear forced and now show your true character. This is particularly the case if you are photographing children, they don’t sit still for long and the ultimate shot is when you capture their natural smiles!
  • Make sure the picture is taken at eye level or slightly from above, this will avoid the double chins and is a more flattering angle to shoot from.
  • Be careful what you have in the background, you don’t want the washing line as a backdrop, an untidy room or other people in the frame.
  • Babies and children are cute when they are eating, but a modelling agency does not need pictures of babies and toddlers with food round their mouths, we are unable to put them forward to clients so please make sure your child has a clean face in pics.
  • Use natural, outdoor locations, the light will be more complimentary and the background more professional.
  • When photographing close up, use the zoom on the camera rather than going in too close.
  • When uploading images to your online portfolio make sure they are not too small as when they are included in searches they can become pixalated and not of a high quality.

Don’t worry about trying to make every photograph completely perfect, have fun with it and don’t be scared to show your personality and character in the shots, this is a factor clients look for when selecting models for commercial purposes!

Have You Thought About Family Modelling With Models Direct?

“We really do rate Models Direct, for us it was the best decision we made putting Myleigh forward and now as a family we are doing things together, having fun and getting paid!!” – The Pearce Family

The Assignments Department at Models Direct often get family modelling enquiries from clients looking to book a model family for their latest advertisement, campaign or commercial…..

More often than not it’s the job of the booking coordinator here at Models Direct to search our database and try and find adults and children that look similar or could act as a family and present them to the client for their approval. Obviously this job could be a lot easier if they were actual REAL families!!
