My duties involved carrying out the step by step duties of a nurse on a daily basis. First I had to prepare fluids which I was to administer to a patient, then we had the hand washing session, patient mobilization, reporting to the doctor on ward rounds.

A big "Thank You" to Models Direct for organising my shoot with the NHS. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and the assignment was fun to work on - I really enjoyed it! This was my second assignment via Models Direct and I look forward to working on further assignments with them. Keep up the good work!

Today I took part in a great assignment offered to me by Models Direct whereby I had to attend a location and model a new clothing range for the Textile Center of Excellence.
I was quite nervous at first but within the first 10 minutes of talking to the director and the 2x photographers I was put at ease.
The shoot lasted for 8hrs and I can honestly say I have gained a lot of professional tips and my confidence has grown also. The day was exciting and enjoyable throughout and everyone was very kind and professional. The photographers direction was excellent and they also were very thorough in getting the correct shot for the style of look they were after.
I would recommend this hobby/career to anyone that has the thought to pursue it.
Thanks Models Direct for my assignment and I look forward to more in the future.

This was my second film shoot through Models Direct and it was fantastic! I got to be driven in an ambulance all day, being filmed in a 'Top Gear' style from a car with overtaking and flying around the countryside of Kent. My part involved me being carried around for most of the day by two burly paramedics who strapped me into a carry chair. I was filmed being carried up and down the stairs, in and out of the ambulance and also in and out of the main entrance to a Hospital, which caused a few heads to turn when we arrived with cameras etc. I'm most probably on a few mobile phones too from the people watching us outside!
All in all an absolutely brilliant day, and so many laughs throughout the day! Bring it on Models Direct, I want more of this paid fun!!

I had a lot of fun being a model for the Textile Center of Excellence.
I got to model an interesting selection of clothes, the most enjoyable part was getting to see some of the photos as we went along.
The assignment involved modelling different outfits by a few different designers and had some video clips taken of us too.
I wouldn't say I learned any new skills as I have done many shoots before so I knew what to expect beforehand.
I would recommend the experience to others, it is a lot of fun as you get to meet interesting people that you probably wouldn't meet otherwise. Everyone is so nice within the industry.
Joining an agency can be quite difficult as most will always find someway of putting you down which can put you off pursuing modelling as a career. I've been quite lucky doing a lot of freelance work which has helped me to get work with a whole bunch of photographers.
Models Direct allowed me to get my foot in the door and they found me some work which no agency has managed for me as of yet.
Gavin, Model fee: £150.00, Ref:1491
This was my first assignment through Models Direct and I had a good time! The client was welcoming and friendly, and the photographer guided me through all the requirements to ensure all criteria was met. We spent several hours in different locations taking many photos which I really enjoyed.

Today I was lucky enough to participate in my first paid modelling job with Xavier Athletica. Having had a few shoots before I didn't feel as nervous as I did the first time I had modelled. Nevertheless I was partially nervous yet excited at the same time. We shot in a variety of beautiful locations around West London where I was fortunate enough to wear the client's high quality clothing range. I posed for many casual shots such as drinking coffee as well as some running and cycling shots. I would thoroughly recommend the experience to others who are looking to get into modelling. It was great fun and I enjoyed every moment of it. My advice for those who would wish to break into the industry is to just be patient and when your opportunity comes around to grasp it with both hands and enjoy yourself. I am looking forward to updating my portfolio using the shots from today's work and cannot wait to see how they have turned out.
My desire to gain experience in modelling was the main reason as to why I decided to join up with Models Direct. Having seen the success of existing clients, I spent no time making my decision to join them. I hope that this is that start of many experiences and that I enjoy them as much as I did today. Thank you Xavier Athletica and thank you Models Direct!

I wasn't nervous for my assignment to begin with. When I got there I was introduced to the crew including the Director and others. It's something that I always wanted to do, the really enjoyable part was the way we were treated with respect, always making sure we had what we wanted.
The assignment involved promoting the new range of Steelcase furniture in a modern office setting. I've learned lots of new skills being in this type of work & I would recommend it anyone who is interested in this industry especially if you like to be in front of a camera.
The only advice I can give is that when you get the opportunities, make them it count! Be friendly, ask when you don't understand and always smile! That in its self, will make things very easy for you as well as being confidence in what you doing and showing your enthusiasm and commitment.
I joined Models Direct after being referred by someone who said they would give me great opportunities. From what I have done and seen so far Models Direct is the best.
Thanks for making my dream come true!
Liam, Model fee: £150.00, Ref:1473
It was a very enjoyable day and something very different than I have never done before. I wasn't nervous at all because I had spoken to both Molly my contact at Models Direct and Chris from Hayes & Finch and they both were very nice and helpful and kept me at ease. I was modelling new robes and accessories for vicars and priests. I had to pose in some standard poses as well as some that looked more priest like. It was a good laugh and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I joined Models Direct because they put you forward for lots of different jobs that you'd never even think of and look after you in any way possible such as getting travel costs added to the pay for the job.
Mohamed, Model fee: £150.00, Ref:1474
It feels great to be a model. I was not nervous at all, it felt like a normal life with no pressure. I had fun with the photographer, the ladies dressing me in different gowns and shirts and also Chris who hired me. It was so good representing Models Direct. I will like to do this again and something different e.g. acting in a movie or anything else to gain more and more experience in this business. The most enjoyable part of my assignment today was seeing myself being respected and treated like an important person in something I like to do. I have definitely gained experience and confidence doing this sort of job. I will encourage anybody to do this sort of work as I see it as a good profession and so interesting, especially being paid as well. It is so good being represented by an agency such as Models Direct because half of the job is done by your representative (coach) such as Molly. I feel confident now updating my e-portfolio and to prove that I have done this sort of job to other companies. The reason why I joined Models Direct is simply to get lots of experience, and it feels nice to feel wanted in your job and respected.

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.

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!
Lukasz, Model fee: £150.00, Ref:1480
Thank you Models Direct for giving me the opportunity to be part of this assignment. This time I was modelling for the exclusive hotel: Solent Forts Amazing Venues in Portsmouth. I worked together with other three models. We posed as hotel guests in several situations. The weather was so fantastic that we were taken for a photo shoot on the boat too. Great experiences, an exciting day. I love to do modeling work and am glad that I chose your agency to help me with it. I hope more work opportunities will come soon. Thank you. Lukasz

I enjoyed taking part in the assignment at Newfield Lodge at Castleford near Leeds. It was great and we all had fun and laughter during the shoot, and I would love to do do it again. The most enjoyable moment during the different takes and the breaks was getting to know and talking to other male and female models from Talent Management and having a good conversation, asking them about their experiences on different assignments. During the day we had to dress like the other residents in the lodge and take part in different rooms with different scenes and settings in one the takes. At one point, we were asked to take part in playing a card game, boules and skittles and also dominos.
I definitely picked up some new skills on the shoot. Having said that, while I was in Australia I joined the Academy School of Modeling in Collins Street Melbourne and then went on to Drama School of Acting and Television with Crawford Productions Film and Television later on. I was given TV extra parts in soaps and a few months later I was asked if I would like to join the cast of Division 4 (television police series). I then did a feature film called Ryan for Channel 7 Dorcas Street Melbourne, which in one scene I was involved in a fight including stunt work, from there I did anther police series called Matlock Police at Channel O Nudawading just outside of Melbourne. It's a good trade to be in TV, radio and stage productions as well as modeling. It's all down to experience and hard work. I would recommend joining a drama group to go a stage further in this industry.
In the talent industry, you meet such a lot of different types of people and you can gain such a lot of experience just by watching and listening. The reason I joined up with Talent Management was to be able to continue with modeling from the experience I had in Australia and to pursue further assignments and earn a lot of money in the meantime.

I had a great time modelling for the title sequence of Chanel 5's new dating show.
Thank you Models Direct, It's is definitely an experience that I would do again due to the fact that there was no pressure and it was completely enjoyable.

My usual involvement with modelling is as chauffeur (unpaid!) for my wife Patricia, who has successfully modelled on a number of occasions. Imaging my surprise and delight to be asked to model (paid) with her on an assignment at a Care Home in Castleford - no hanging about in an unfamiliar town this time.
We were greeted at the Care Home by a most welcoming receptionist, offered coffee straight away and at intervals throughout the day together with an excellent buffet lunch for which the chef had even baked a victoria sponge cake.
The very professional photographer made the work easy - my first scene was in the garden, as the weather was fine and sunny, and involved my pretending to attend one of the raised gardens - gardening is very definitely not my forte, but all went well. Other scenes during the morning involved holding hands with Patricia and doing a crossword, rather more in my line than gardening.
After lunch we were joined by Anna and Michael for more scenes - playing cards, having a sing-song by the electric organ, played most convincingly by Michael, and a scene where I was supposed to be laughing uproariously at a joke - try laughing to order!
The day seemed to rush by and it was time to go home - a very worthwhile and enjoyable experience - thank you very much Molly at Talent Management!

The modelling shoot I did on Friday for Nestle's Maxibon Ice Cream was good fun and I enjoyed the whole day. I was a bit nervous at first because I was around a lot of new people, but they all welcomed me and I got to know everyone so I settled down. It was by far the best shoot I have done and I would recommend others to sign up with Models Direct!

I spent the afternoon working with two other models and the production team at Ideal Care Homes. I was asked to play the part of care assistant in varies scenarios, the aim being images for a publicity brochure. The shoot was very well organised and we were told exactly what was wanted at each stage. Everyone was really friendly which made the experience very enjoyable. Thanks Models Direct (Molly) for making sure everything went to plan.

It is getting more and more difficult to find superlatives for each assignment I receive from Models Direct. The latest a journey to the East Midlands to take part in a brochure photo shoot for a retirement home. My fellow models were Emma, we had worked together on other projects and Kristina who I worked alongside for the first time. The shoot was to highlight the activities available for residents. These were various but two stand out - one was planting up a garden plot with flowers, Emma and I working together, and the second where the delightful Kristina introduced me to the intricate game of chess. We were very lucky as the weather was sunny, if not very warm and the shoot very well organised. Now retired from full time business, I have been working with Models Direct for over four years and each assignment has proved to be a really enjoyable experience, just try it and find out for yourself. As ever thank you Molly for finding me the job. Herb

Being booked to work for Invacare made me feel nervous beforehand because I had never done that type of modelling before, but everyone was so welcoming and supportive and welcoming. As the day went on I relaxed into it and it became really fun and enjoyable! In this assignment, I had to pose as a music teacher for children with disabilities and pose as though I was teaching a lesson. I also had to act as though I was having a radio interview with a local DJ as well as giving him a tour of the school. The most enjoyable part of the day was getting to work with the children and props in order to make the script come to life. Thanks to Models Direct for the opportunity!

I really enjoyed modelling for Sutton Coldfield Company Art, thank you very much to my agent Marie who has been very helpful.
I'm very pleased with all the help and support from Models Direct.
Luan, Model fee: £150.00, Ref:1411
This was my first assignment and I loved it. It was a great experience, the photographers were very nice and I had a blast. It was great working alongside a gorgeous female model which helped bring it all together with me. We were modelling fitness gear for KT sports. I learnt so much and gained a lot of experience on just this one job.
I would recommend doing this work to anybody. Anyone who is considering getting into modelling - do it! It's great and you will meet brilliant new people. Thanks TM.

I have got loads of experience in performing and modelling yet still get a little nervous when arriving on set. The photo shoot was alot of fun. The assignment was for the award winning 5 star Talland Bay Hotel in Cornwall, the assignment was to promote the hotel and their wedding venue and wedding packages. The other models and I all wore wedding attire, and asked to pose smiling, laughing. The photo shoot involved alot of group poses, which was new to me as I'm used to being photographed alone, that was a new and personal challenge.
All the team on the day of the photo shoot were very friendly and helpful from the photographer, hair and make up to the hotel staff, it really was a good day.
If you're passionate about modeling and acting etc I would definitely recommend joining an agency, even if you're just starting out or want to gain more work joining Models Direct is a good move to make, they are fantastic, I've only been with them a month and a half and I already got my first job from them.
I signed up to Models Direct as I'm a very ambitious person who is passionate about Acting and Modeling and I wanted to get as much work as I can, so I can get my face out there and catapult to the next stage of my career. So thank you Models Direct for signing me and Thank you to Marie for being so helpful with all my queries with regards to the photo shoot!

Well here goes, anyone who is a regular reader of my feedback reports will recall that time after time I comment on just how good the experience was, and you think that on some occasions that it wont get better than this, well today it did.
The assignment for Sanctuary Group, they provide upmarket retirement properties was in and around Cheltenham. It was a glorious sunny day although quite cold but the warmth of the welcome to myself and "wife" Anna from the team of Charlotte and Liam more than made up for the chill.
It was like being on holiday - we wandered through parks and gardens, around the very smart and quite pricey shops in the Montpellier district of this lovely town, had a cup of tea in the park and then lunch at Cheltenham's top hotel.
The theme was a couple who are considering the purchase of an upmarket retirement property in the town, if they enjoy Cheltenham as much as we enjoyed this assignment they would indeed be happy.
Thank you Charlotte, thank you Liam, Especially thank you Anna and as always thank you Molly for giving me the job.

This was my first assignment and I didn't feel too nervous about the situation as I was made to feel extremely welcome by the Staff and owners of the Talland Bay Hotel in Cornwall.
There were 3 guys and 3 girls playing the parts of a wedding party of Bride,Groom,Best Man,Bridesmaid, Mother and Father of the Bride (yours truly)
My other fellow models were friendly and it didn't take long for us to all get along and have a great time during the photo shoot.
The weather wasn't as good as it could have been but we all made the most of it and Simon the photographer and his assistant were brilliant.
I feel quite desperate to do more now as I enjoyed the day so much and made a lot of new friends.
There wasn't one standout part of the day that I could say I enjoyed the most as it was the experience as a whole which I loved. It gives you oodles more confidence and I would recommend it to anyone to get involved in.
As well as having a great day where we actually got fed and watered too which I didn't expect, we got paid also!!!
Lastly the venue is local to me so I have now found a beautiful place to go and hangout as it is open to Non Residents and is beautiful. Thanks Models Direct- 5 STARS from me!!!
