With hundreds of modelling agencies in the UK, offering budding models amazing opportunities for a fulfilling modelling career, they all work in similar and in different ways. Speaking from our perspective as the UK’s top modelling agency, MD’s fair representation takes the top spot and our ethos encompasses everyone to take the leading role as a model. Our team of highly skilled and modelling-savvy experts are a force to be reckoned with. We know the biz like the back of our hand but we’re constantly learning new and current trends so that we’re always up to speed with our world.
Our focus is to connect models with clients so that clients’ marketing briefs can be successfully fulfilled and real-life models can step in and get the chance to try out a diverse and inclusive career. Our agency switches it up. We don’t place barriers and restrictions on our models – their looks, their size, their ethnicity, their background, we embrace everyone. We aim to make the modelling experience a unique, beautiful and worthwhile one.
Here’s an overview of how MD do it. We’re transparent and honest in our approach so if there’s anything you’re unaware of after reading this blog you can reach out to our team who will be happy to help. So, without further ado, let’s go!
1. We welcome new models and clients
Our modelling agency provides a space for new models to register and clients to hire models to make the booking process from both perspectives simple. It’s all online so no need to fill in any paper forms or use the postal service!
2. We provide models with a space for the creation and development of their portfolio
Your portfolio is your ticket to getting noticed by us and clients, so MD encourage our models to keep their ePortfolio active and topped up with versatile images. We have plenty of blogs to help inspire you if you’re lost for portfolio ideas.
3. We handle bookings
Our team deals with every stage in the modelling and client hiring lifecycle. Ultimately, we book models with clients, it’s our speciality as an agency. Our team searches for models that fit closely to the client’s modelling specification and we present them to our client. Our team ensures a contract is drawn up between us, our clients and our models to ensure that our models have a transparent experience of what the job will look like. We know that the client brief includes all of the following logistics:
Nature of assignment
Scheduled plan of the day
We also negotiate how much our model will be paid after the assignment. They can then go on to decide whether they want to take the assignment on or not.
4. We ensure payment is released
Our agency’s policy is that our models will receive a paycheck for their work within a week of completion. It’s our guarantee!
5. We offer guidance and support
Our team are on hand at every step of the modelling process, from the model selection phase through to the final production of the work. We ensure we touch base with our models and perform a “happiness check” unique to our agency so that we can get an insight into how our model’s experience went. We welcome all feedback, positive and negative, so we know where we’re going right and where we need to make room for improvements.
We handle the heat pretty well, and nothing is too small or overwhelming for us to take on. Our 30 years in the modelling industry and powerful teamwork skills represent how we work as an agency.
