……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’.
Whereas, Models Direct has been established for 30 years, in that time as the UK’s number one model and talent agency, finding paid part time work with a wide variety of clients in all sectors of the modelling and media industry. Our bookings team are experienced in coordinating assignments for TV, film, promotional events and of course photoshoots, this requires alot of knowledge and experience to talk with photographers to casting directors and provide them with the talent they are looking for.
Every model registered with us has appointed to them their own model Co-ordinator. Yes, someone to look after you….on the end of the phone. A REAL HUMAN!!
A big advantage Models Direct has over other agencies is that we work all over the country and infact internationally, so we promote you worldwide.
Many of our families get bookings for brochures, films and TV ads, we’re always being asked by clients ….’More families’!! Currently, one of our model families is on a 4 day assignment next week in France, they have secured an all expenses paid trip for a well known travel company. This family will be filmed and photographed, simply having fun on holiday! Yes, almost unbelievable…except its real. We’ll share the coverage with you soon! You’re always welcome to visit our Head Office and we’ll sneak you assignment details. As a token of our commitment to you visiting and a welcoming invite….we pay half your travel, fuel or rail costs. Just one little difference you wont find ANY other agency doing and we’ve been doing it for 30 years.
You’re beginning to get an idea …we are different in what we do and the way we do it. We maybe bigger than most agencies but we never lose the personal touch. I’m writing this and 30 years ago, I started Models Direct. Our family are still at the core of it today and that extends beyond relations. We have treasured staff colleagues who’ve been with us over 20 years and at least five who’ve been here for over ten years. We frankly forget how many years, it’s not that important. What we do is. Give us a visit, we’d love to meet you.
Were also very active on social media, it’s a great was for you to see daily what it’s like to be a working model with us. Our social media is full of pics of models on location, behind the scenes of assignments and of course lots of success stories and model experiences – if you don’t already support us online, click the link below:
Our Models Direct bookings team are actively looking for work for our models. They have a wealth of experience in building relationships with photographers, casting directors, brands and production agencies, always looking for the chance to put our models forward for any suitable modelling opportunities.
Of course the final selection of a model is always down to the client, this is not something an agency can control, but our booking agents will continually put your ePortfolio forward whenever your look fits the brief.
If you’re shortlisted or selected for a booking, a member of the team will call you and agree all the details, tell you how much you get paid, plus travel, chaperone fees, what to expect etc, ….just another of the many reasons to be represented by Models Direct. Not only do we negotiate the best fee for you with our client, we get it off them before you do the booking. That way its safe in our Client Account and paid to you, with five days of your feed back as to how your day went. ‘Safe and secure’, that’s our number one priority on your behalf. We are known as the UK’s number one agency because we put our models first. First for modelling jobs, first for payment and first in our minds everyday we come to work to represent them.
We could do the same for you. Why settle for less?
You’re now ready to launch your modelling career, click here to speak to your personal Model Co ordinator…….a real person who’s here to help and look after you. Simple, its called putting you first.
By the way, the headline may have been confusing…..we also represent ‘Star Pets’. You’ll see them feature in lots of TV and film ads. I don’t think we have any horses that can speak.
