Hearing what models have to say about their assignment experience is amazing and so useful – a real insight to what it’s like working as a commercial model!
“At first I was really nervous because this was my first assignment – it turned out to be not that scary though! It was such a fun day and I met great people, one of which was a Models Direct model. We had to have shots taken for Solent Forts Hotel, and present its features in the best way. It was such a pleasure to spend the day in such a beautiful place! I had a great time on my first photo shoot, and now I am sure that I made the best choice to become a model.” – Simona
“I must admit I was nervous this being my first assignment but also very excited. I was early and slowly more models came and we all got on from the start, and from there onward I knew it was going to be a brilliant day – which it was! The weather could not of been better for the venue. The Fort was amazing, an outstanding hotel with staff who made the day the best experience I have ever had, and believe me I’ve had a few experiences, but nothing compares to this.
I would love to do this more and more and I found a new confidence posing in different scenarios and dressing to fit that occasion. Signing up to Models Direct has helped me, and having spoken to other models on the day, I realise the importance of having good quality photos on your portfolio in order to gain more bookings. I personally would like to do more and be pushed down that route, especially now there’s a possibility of new photos from the shoot to add to the my portfolio.” – Kevin
“What an incredible day at an amazing venue with really lovely people. We met early at Portsmouth quay to get in a boat to be taken to the venue, a historic fort that has been converted into a bespoke hotel. The assignment crew and other models were brilliant and made a long day enjoyable by making sure everyone always had a smile on their face. There were various shoots involving dining in restaurants, getting married and posing in a hot tub. Working with a structure through Models Direct agency ensured everything was professionally handled and as a model I was looked after and tended to. The Models Direct experience is helping me live the dream!” – Spencer
